    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is already out for PlayStation 4 and PC in the west, but Tokyo Game Show 2018 has unveiled new info on the delayed Switch version of the game. The official title of it will be Dragon Quest XI S, which Square Enix claims that the "S" stands for "Switch", or "Special", or "Seiyuu", the latter being the Japanese word for voice acting. We still have no release date for the game, but we now have confirmation that development is still active, and that the game will feature full voice acting in Japan.

    I was expecting any words from Bandai about Ridge Racer 8 at TGS, but looks like it's not happening, unfortunatelly.

    The "S" is to remind us they Skipped the 3DS version.

    I actually bought this game for the pc today, but I haven't gotten around to playing it. I've been preoccupied with octopath traveler. I have nearly 100 hours in that game, but it's starting to grow stale. that's the reason why I decided to buy the game on steam rather than wait on a switch version whenever that's to be released. :)

    Tedious as in high quality, entertaining, long playtime and thus high value for money? Or tedious as in you probably have to grind for a few hours at some point unless you are cheating? Then, in both cases, yes.
