    The Xbox Games Showcase has revealed that Dragon Quest XI S is leaving its exclusivity on the Nintendo Switch to join new platforms soon. On December 4th, the definitive version of Dragon Quest XI will make its way to Xbox One and Game Pass, Windows 10, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The original localization of the game launched in September 2018, and was followed up by a version with new story content, orchestral music, and a retro sprite mode a year later, of which was only available on the Nintendo Switch. Square Enix also confirmed that Dragon Quest XI S will head to the Xbox Series X as well.

    I wonder if there will be an upgrade path for those of us who already own the original version on Steam.

    Other then that this is good news.

    Your opinion but as someone that has been playing JRPGs since the Snes for me its the best JRPG ever.

    Finally, I will play Dragon Quest XI. Wanted to play on PS4 because I hate long-form games on Switch but didn't want the inferior non-"S" version. Now I'll just play on PS5!
    People do this in every news thread for a new game, they just want attention for their opinion. There's no reason to comment otherwise.

    One of the main reasons I bought a switch, hoping for an easy upgrade on steam.

    Great game. I was surprised how well it performed on the Switch. I recommend to anyone who likes classic, no-nonsense JRPGs

    Dragon Quest XI story wise rather confusingly is actually the first game in the Erdrick Saga lol. It goes like this

    (Erdrick Saga)
    Dragon Quest Xi
    Dragon Quest III
    Dragon Quest I
    Dragon Quest II

    Next we have the Zenithian trilogy

    Dragon Quest IV
    Dragon Quest V
    Dragon Quest Vi

    And lastly VII VIII IX and X are all not connected to any other Dragon Quest games.

    Looking at Square track record, probably not. PS Vita / PS3 / PS4 simultaneous release are not cross-sold, FFVIII (8) Remastered is a separate purchase than FFVIII although its the same game fixed and FFVII Remake is actually a part 1/3 instead of a full remake.

    Now I just have to hope there is some weird and convoluted method to convert the switch save to PC. I started playing this at a friend's house a long time ago, and got decently far, but I don't really play Switch at his house anymore. He has CFW so I can boot up checkpoint or whatever to pull the save, so I just need a way to get it to work on PC.
