The primary focus of the footage we saw was on a major boss battle with a giant squid. As far as combat goes, it’s very typical JRPG combat with focused and tactical turn-based combat. So lots of tactical use of magic spells, items and special abilities will be needed to overcome the challenges Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will throw at you.
There’s also hints of the world building and themes that are at play in the game. Although we don’t get too far into the lore or thee boss fight itself in order to avoid any story spoilers. So if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll probably be disappointed.
The game will also feature full English voice acting options in its international localizations. This marks the first time this has occurred for the franchise in modern games.
Check out the latest trailer from Square Enix on Dragon Quest XI down below. Dragon Quest XI launches in North America and Europe on PS4 and PC on September 4th. Those of you gamers that own a Nintendo Switch will have to wait a while for the port though, as no official information has come out regarding a release date for that version.
