Based on a recent announcement made public by game developer Square Enix, Dragon Quest XI arrives on PS4, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo NX. The game is said to come with new upgrades including the 3D version for Nintendo, but fans will most likely have to wait until next year when the final version of the game will be completed.
The Japanese developer has further stated that the developer of the game is Saito Yosuke, who has used great part of his technical abilities for the development of the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS versions. However, the PS4 game version has been made in collaboration with Unreal Engine 4 because Square Enix wants the game console to be used at its full capacity.
Developers hare reassured customers that there won’t be any significant changes between games on different consoles. Customers, should nevertheless, be informed that the Nintendo 3DS game will have a split monitor. On the top side, players will see the 3D version of the game, whereas they can view the tradition 2D appearance of the game on the bottom of the computer screen.
Tech analysts have been very puzzled by the new announcement that Enix has made during their recent conference. It appears that the game will also be compatible with Nintendo NX, even though no details have been released yet on the new game console.
The images that were introduced during the conference, prove that the appearance and the graphics of the game have been significantly improved. The images are much clearer and no delays have been noticed in the movements of the players because Enix is working to make the game livelier than ever.
As developers have stated, players will be able to jump and to fully explore the upper areas in the game. Monsters and enemies may be encountered on the field before the battle begins and NPCs may be viewed from a much larger distance now, according to the first snapshots that have been revealed during the official presentation of the game.
While some changes have been enacted, developers at Square Enix have concluded that many of the previous characteristics and tech specifications have remained. Players won’t have to get familiar with new playing techniques because these have been preserved from the previous versions.
Koichi Sugiyama, the music composer of the game, has also taken part in the conference. He has declared that the music of Dragon Quest XI has been conceived as a reminder of the first series of the game.
Developers plan to release Dragon Quest XI on the 30th anniversary of the series, so we don’t expect the game to become available sooner than 2016.
