Yesterday Square Enix finally announced the Japanese release dates for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Dragon Quest X.
Following the announcement, the publisher also released the box art and first screenshots of the new console versions, that prepare to replace the Wii version after support will be discontinued.
Both versions will come in the form of an “All in One Package” coming with version 1, version 2 and version 3 of the game, hence the boxes split between three illustrations.
Square Enix will offer an upgrade plan between the Wii version and the Switch version, while those who want to play on PS4 won’t have that option.
On top of that, we learn that the package of the box of the Switch version will not include a game card. It will simply come with a download code, and the requirement of 24 gigabytes free on your console’s main storage or memory card.
The PS4 version will release in Japan on August 17th, while The Switch version will launch later, on September 21st. I’m sure no one will be shocked by now in learning that there is no announcement for a localization just yet. The game is already available for Wii U and PC.
You can check out the assets below, and if you want to see more, you can enjoy some spiffy gameplay showcased yesterday.
If you’re interested in Dragon Quest, you can also watch more gameplay from the PS4 and 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI and some new images. Yesterday, we also learned that Square Enix can’t yet talk about the Switch version, due to “adult circumstances.”
