Square Enix will host a Dragon Quest Then And Now – Echoes Through the Ages panel at PAX West this month.
The panel will take place in the Raven Theatre at 10.30am PT on Saturday 31st August, and will offer “a behind-the-scenes look at how developers from Square Enix, both established and newer, maintain series roots while catering to present-day RPG enthusiasts in creating modern-day classics like Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch system.”
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition is filled with memorable characters, an enchanting story, and classic RPG gameplay that you can now play on the go.
You play as a young man who, about to participate in his village’s coming of age ceremony, learns that he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.
He sets out to unravel the mystery of his past, but, after revealing his identity to the King, he is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.
In this enhanced version, you can expect the same sprawling content as in the original release, but the developer has added new character-specific stories, the option to increase the battle speed, fully orchestrated field and battle music, and the chance to switch between HD and retro-inspired 16-bit visuals.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition launches for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 27th.
