    The latest iteration in the main Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest XI, has been confirmed to be localized and coming to the west in 2018!

    No word on which platforms will be included in this release, but we are promised more information "Autumn 2017". The JP releases were on PS4 and 3DS, with a planned Switch version, so it's likely these are the platforms it will be releasing on, which is good news for the Switch.

    I'd venture so far as to say one of the best if Pokemon on Switch launches Holiday 2018. The Switch's library is loaded, glad I'm gonna be getting a lot of mileage from it. Also, Sony will finally drop all those exclusives they've been banking up (God of War, Spiderman, Detroid: Become Human, etc.). I'm excited too, to say the least.

    Gonna get the 3DS and PS4 versions for sure, especially since they are both vastly different in terms of looks.

    Gonna have to see how the Switch version runs before getting that tho.

    Hope they will release on the 3ds, I would probably play there instead of the switch as it is more portable

    DQXI might get me to finally invest in a PS4. DQVIII was magical on the PS2...

    yay... more rehashed storylines, more of the same old menu system, more of the same old story structure, more of the same old equipment, more of the same old useless spells, more of the hurrdurr, dis here town got da funny accent.

    i mean, really, its just gonna be monster x wrecks havok in human world, gets beaten by random chosen one, turns out to only be ruler of underworlds proxy and then there's a 2-4 phase boss battle where you're debuffed every two turns.
