posted on by Karen Ressler
Square Enix announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday that it will release Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age (Dragon Quest XI S: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete), the Switch version of the Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete) game, in North America and Europe. The game will debut this fall, the same release window as Japan's.
Square Enix describes the game:
A young man, about to participate in his village's coming of age ceremony, heads off to the top of the local lookout point alongside his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.
The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past…but the welcome he receives is far from warm.
Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.
Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually the Luminary reborn. He and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.
The new version for Switch includes new stories for each of the main characters.
