During a broadcasted event from Nagoya, Japan, Square Enix showcased more lovely footage of its upcoming JRPG Dragon Quest XI.

The footage was presented directly by series creator Yuji Horii and Producer Yosuke Saito.

First and foremost, we get a look at the menus on 3DS, and more precisely at the crafting feature. We get to see the process for creating a Glass Sword

After that, we get to see the skill panel, which is where the player can select new skills to progress his character in a variety of ways. Following, we move to the equipment panel and some combat in  3D mode.

Moving on to the PS4 version, we get to see a horse race and the casino, including slot machine gameplay. Unfortunately, the new Puff Puff feature was not showcased.

On top of that, we get to see a screenshots of the “Tied Play” hard mode feature, showing another of the possible rules, forbidding to equip armor. You can see that under the videos.

Dragon Quest XI will be released in Japan on July 29th for PS4 and 3DS, with a Nintendo Switch release also planned. Unfortunately, no release window has been announced for the Switch port just yet.

You can check out the videos (including the full recording of the stream at the bottom of the post), and if you want to see more  you can also watch a recent and hilarious trailermore gameplay from the PS4 and 3DS versions from the previous lovestream and some recent images showing magic and a village, and more showcasing the flamboyant Sylvia.
