Before its release later next month, you can begin your journey early by downloading a demo for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition on the UK Switch Eshop and the US Switch Eshop right now.
All of your progress will carry over into the full game, allowing you to get a head start on the latest grand adventure in the Dragon Quest series.
The demo will also give you a taste of some of the new additions coming to the Definitive Edition on Switch. There’s a comprehensive host of changes and new content, including new character-specific stories, fully orchestrated field and battle music, side quests that allow you to journey into past Dragon Quest worlds, and the ability to switch between not only HD and retro-inspired 16-bit visuals adapted from the 3DS version, but Japanese and English voice tracks as well.
GameSpot reviewed Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age back in September last year when it was initially released for PC and PS4. Reviewer Heidi Kemps gave it 9/10, saying, “Innovation in games is talked about a lot, but it’s also great to see traditional gameplay formulas that have been around for decades presented exceptionally well. Dragon Quest XI is one of the best modern examples of this; its beautiful presentation, both visual- and story-wise, combines with a tried-and-true gameplay formula for a journey that’s full of heart and soul. Once you find yourself sucked into the world of Dragon Quest XI, it’s going to be hard to put down until you reach the grand finale.”
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition launches on Nintendo Switch September 27.
