Square Enix is finally bringing Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition to Xbox Game Pass, marking this as the first time the series has been on Xbox. In addition, the Definitive Edition is also launching on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age originally launched in 2018 and was met with critical success, and the Definitive Edition later launched on Nintendo Switch in September 2019.
You play as the Luminary, a legendary hero who rises when true evil is about to reincarnated, who was abandoned as a baby. Things ramp up from the start and you set off to learn more about your past while recruiting people to your cause, all the while avoiding evil-doers who would see you dead. The Dragon Quest series has always had some of the best-written characters, this is still true in Echoes of an Elusive Age, even though it takes some time warming up to them, more so when you explore their backstories and why they are where they are when you meet them.
Like all past Dragon Quest games, this one’s character designs are based on the signature style of famed artist Akira Toriyama. Paired with the voiced dialogue, the rich personalities of your most loyal companions and fiercest enemies are brought to life, so you can fully immerse yourself in this quest to discover the Luminary’s true heritage and awaken your power. For a greater challenge, start the game with the Draconian Quest setting, and capture your favourite moments with Photo Mode!
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition launches on December 4 for Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 4, and PC.
