Dragon Quest XI S Demo Available Today On PC, PS4, Xbox One

Square Enix launched a demo for non Switch players awaiting Dragon Quest XI S, with over ten hours of content to help you wait for the full release.

November 2, 2020

Square Enix has now published a demo for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition, on PS4, PC via Windows 10 and Steam, and Xbox One. The demo has around 10 hours of content for you to try, and a good focus on some of the additions of this Definitive Edition. Saves from the demo can be transferred to the full game.

We have the ability to increase the battles’ speed, being able to switch between both Japanese and English audio. A symphonic OST, a new Photo Mode, an improved crafting system, and more. We also most notably have the Nintendo 3DS content, with the option to switch to its 2D graphics. The Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI was never released outside Japan, and it probably never will. However, now everyone can experience it. The only thing sadly still missing is the Voice Dramas, the audio side stories focusing on each characters. These are still DLCs exclusive to the Japanese version of Dragon Quest XI S.

A trailer for the Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition demo has been published as well:

Square Enix’ Yuji Horii mentioned in the latest Dragon Quest X event that several announcements for the series will be happening in 2021. Since that’s when Dragon Quest will be celebrating its 35th anniversary. Perhaps we’ll hear about Dragon Quest XII then. A new console game for Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai is also in development, and a new anime series is airing since October.

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition is already available on Nintendo Switch. This version and the original versions of the game have already sold over 6 million copies worldwide. Definitive Edition will be launching on the other mainstream platforms on December 4. These new versions are identical to the Switch version in content.
