Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition PC, PS4, X1 Will Be Based on the Nintendo Switch Version
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year, but the game's visuals will not be on par with the original release.
Following the announcement, Square Enix confirmed on the game's official website that the game will be based on the Nintendo Switch release, and such will not feature the same visual quality of the vanilla PC and PlayStation 4 releases.
This version includes a number of new features that were not present in the original DRAGON QUEST XI for PlayStation 4, including new storylines, the ability to switch to 2D mode, additional voice data, and more. It’s a port of the Nintendo Switch version, so the graphics are not the same as they were for the original DRAGON QUEST XI for PlayStation 4.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch looks considerably worse than the original PC and PlayStation 4 releases, so this is definitely not good news. On the other hand, the game features the superior orchestral soundtrack, tons of quality of life improvements, and plenty of new content that make the whole experience more enjoyable.
