The Xbox Games Showcase pre-show started off with a pretty major (and surprising) announcement. Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently talked about wanting to have better Japanese support on Xbox, and Microsoft seem to be putting their money where their mouth is. Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition is coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox One on December 4.
It will also be releasing for PC, which up until now has only had the base game. With the definitive edition now coming to PC and Xbox, and having been available on the Switch for a while, PS4 remains the only platform that doesn’t have that in its library- it remains to be seen whether that will be announced.
It’s also been confirmed that Dragon Quest 11 S will be available via Xbox Game Pass as well, which is excellent news for subscribers of the service who haven’t played the game yet.
It’s a great game, and definitely worth playing, to say the very least. You can read our review for the original PS4 release through here. Dragon Quest 11 has sold over 5.5 million units worldwide– Square Enix will be hoping that the upcoming Xbox launch will drive up those figures even further.
