Dragon Quest XI S planned to launch worldwide in 2019

Dragon Quest XI S worldwide 2019

For JRPG lovers like me, any news is exciting news when it comes to Dragon Quest XI S on Nintendo Switch. Right now, citing private internal sources, Nintendo Soup is reporting that Square Enix intends to launch the game in North America, Europe, and Japan all in 2019.

Will they release on the same day? Dunno. Which month will it be? Dunno. The year is all that has been reported. But still, it’s nice to know that Switch owners don’t have to wait too much longer. And I continue to hope — hope so hard — that Dragon Quest XI S will surprise us by including the 2D mode from the 3DS version of the game. Fingers crossed, people!
