Dragon Quest XI Won't Be on PS Vita, but it Still Looks Great via PS4 Remote Play

Take a look at Dragon Quest XI Running on PS Vita via PS4 Remote Play.

July 28, 2017

With the decline of PS Vita sales and the termination of dedicated first party development, Sony hasn’t been talking about its portable console all that much lately, and the same goes for one of its most relevant features, PS4 remote play.

Enter Square Enix, that set out to demonstrate today that if you want to play Dragon Quest XI on a portable, but don’t want to wait for the still-mysterious Switch version, or to put up with the arguably hideous visuals on 3DS, you still can, and it looks really good.

The publisher released a video showcasing the PS4 version of the game played on PS Vita via remote play, showing some assorted gameplay on top of the Magic Slot feature that is exclusive to PS4 and appears to be perfect for remote play.


The video is topped by some super-cute Dragon Quest nail art, and the wonder on whether the game will look like this on Switch, or the pipe dreams for a PS Vita 2, whether you’re in the Nintendo or Sony camps.

Dragon Quest XI will release tomorrow on PS4 and 3DS, on the ides of never for PS Vita, and some time down the line for Switch, with no launch date announced for Nintendo’s new console as of yet.

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.
