Dragon Quest XI For PS4 and 3DS Has Gone Gold Ahead of July 29th release.

Dragon Quest XI Creator Yuji Hori Announces that the game is now complete, at least for PS4 and 3DS.

June 17, 2017

Today Sqare Enix hosted an event dedicated to Dragon Quest XI in Nagoya, Japan, and series creator Yuji Horii made an announcement about the development situation.

To be more precise, the veteran developer mentioned that the master version of the game is complete, about a month before its launch on 3DS and PS4. This is the Japanese equivalent of what western developers call “going gold.”

Horii-san added that this means that fans can rest easy, because there won’t be any problems or delays before release.

Of course, this is just about the PS4 and 3DS versions, as there are no news about the Nintendo Switch version of the game, that still doesn’t have a firm release date or even a window, despite having been confirmed by both Square Enix and Nintendo.


During the same event, Square Enix also showcased some lovely gameplay of both the PS4 and 3DS versions, showing a horse race, the casino, crafting, the skill panel and a bit of combat. You can check it out here.

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.

Dragon Quest XI will be released in Japan on July 29th for PS4 and 3DS.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
