Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age Coming to the West in 2018

More details incoming.

Square Enix announced today that Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be coming to the West in 2018. The company is currently localizing the game into five languages, including English.

Dragon Quest game designer, Yujii Horii, appeared in a video announcing Dragon Quest 11's localization, as well as to thank fans for 30 years of Dragon Quest games. He also announced that more details regarding the localization will be shared in the fall. That's presumably when we'll find out which consoles the game will be coming out on, and when.

Dragon Quest 11 just came out in Japan this weekend for both the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS, with a Nintendo Switch version coming out in the future (though there's no release date for that version yet).

According to Horii, Dragon Quest 11 is unique for starring a "pursued hero", although it's not clear what exactly that means. Square Enix said in a statement that the game, "follows the adventure of a hero who must solve the mystery of his fate with the aid of a charming cast of supporting characters."

Keep an eye out this fall when we learn more about Dragon Quest 11's western release.
