    That's a real bummer for the 3DS version, it was the most unique of the bunch. Hopefully its features will be implemented into the Switch version.
    ... Whenever that comes out...

    Oh, and you can bet it will have Denuvo, as well as a layer of another proprietary DRM they come up with. With Steam DRM on top of that.

    this brings a tear to my eye, so looking forward to DQXI, this will blow away all the other jrpgs period.

    Congratulations Square Enix. Dragon Quest XI will be the first PC game I will have pirated in the last 5 years.

    They said that the Switch version would not be releasing this year, and that it could potentially come "much later." So no definite word on when that's gonna be a thing, but it'll probably be well into 2019.

    That said, I'm excited as all heck to finally play this game! Not having a PS4, I'm glad it's coming to PC, too. Definite buy for me, I'm dying for more Dragon Quest. I was gonna hold out for the Switch version, but PC will do just fine. Sucks for those that wanted the 3DS version (and the top-screen 3D/bottom-screen 2D was pretty cool), but the 3DS is kinda End-of-Life now and Dragon Quest games aren't big here, so maybe it made business sense in Square's eyes? Although, then I'd point to Dragon Quest IX as a Dragon Quest game that did pretty well here and was a DS-only release. At any rate, you can probably bet your ass that there'll be a translation project started sometime soon.

    They dropped the 3ds version. Dammmmmit to hell!!!!! Hopefully the translation can be transferred from the ps4 version. Not hating on ps4 or pc players, but for ppl with little time, handheld is much more convenient.

    There's always the Switch version if you want a little portability, but who knows when that's coming.

    While the 2D screen they mentioned when the game was first revealed seemed interesting, I'm not gonna cry over not getting it when it's coming out on my preferred "console" instead. They probably axed the 3DS version because of how easy it is to get CFW on 3DS now. It was easy back then but way easier now.

    And it's not easy to pirate on PC? They just gave up on a dead console.

    With the right Denuvo you can delay pirates for a few weeks (months in the past but things have been quicker lately). Plenty of time for those on the sidelines to go "I'm done waiting, I'll buy it." I mean, I wouldn't, but other pirates would. Waiting for Far Cry 5 as we speak...

    But the 3DS isn't a dead console. The DS is a dead console. Over 60M 3DS have been sold, compared to Vita's ~15M. Until the 4DS is announced (and no, the Switch isn't the 4DS) the 3DS will be a great console to make games for. Maybe by the time the game comes out the PS4 will be more widely hacked with 5.XX HEN, but as it currently stands the PS4 and PC (at least for a little while, but it's those first weeks that count) are the more secure choices.

    indeed, this 8 years old 240p console lacking a second analog is the greatest thing in 2018, no contest. it even has a wonderful 3d functionality, what more can you ask.

    You were looking for any reason and you found one, why do they even waste time bring this stuff to PC.

    Square Enix always find a way to crap in itself's pants. PC-port instead of 3DS? Idiots.
