Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age is releasing right around the corner and Nintendo has a surprise. The original three Dragon Quest games are coming to Nintendo Switch. The Dragon Quest series has been a very long running series beginning back in 1986. The Original three games were released over three consecutive years from 1986 to 1988. They all received much acclaim and fan fare upon release.
Nintendo has a happy little surprise for the fans, and is dropping these on release day for Dragon Quest XI S. That is just a week and a half away on the 27th of September. That is absolutely fantastic news for fans and newcomers alike.
If you are not familiar with Dragon Quest, it is a turned based Role Playing Game. When the original released over thirty years ago, it help launch the JRPG genre outside of Japan. It takes place in a high fantasy world, usually featuring a voiceless protagonist. The player travels the magical lands of the series, gathering party members, slaying monsters, and conquering dungeons. Dragon Quest provided many of the tropes that we still see in the JRPG genre today.
Hopefully, these surprise releases will be a chance for fans of the new game to take a look at starting point of it all. It will definitely be exciting to also see some of the improvements coming to the games as well. Some mentioned improvements are cleaned up and updated graphics, re-recorded soundtrack, and improved pacing to combat.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age, as well as Dragon Quest 1, 2, and 3 will all be launching on September 27, 2019 on Nintendo Switch.
