Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is coming to the West in September, Square Enix announced today. The game will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PC.

Originally released last year in Japan on the 3DS and PlayStation 4, the Japanese developer will only translate the PS4 port for the West, however, a Nintendo Switch port is being worked on.

The Western release will featured updated and improvements to the original including:

  • English Voiceover

  • Overhauled Menus & UI, with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation.
  • Camera Mode, allowing players to take in views of the beautiful landscape, character renders and ferocious monsters in detail.
  • A New Dash Function and many other system enhancements such as improved character and camera movement
