    Why do Dragon Quest games always have that weird brassy soundtrack?

    So no love for this game? And you wonder why S-E dont wanna release DQ games in the west. Anyway, game is getting pretty good reviews so far

    I’ve been a fan ever since I started playing the remakes on the ds. Cant wait for this game.

    Excited to play this, pretty much enjoyed the rest of the main dragon quest titles. First time playing on steam though, unlocking in less than an hr here.

    I only played VIII on the PS2 before, because it was the only one with a western release. However I really liked it and always hoped for a PS4 remake, but this will do too I think.

    The one with the brides on the DS and dqVIII are definitely my favorites.
    Gotta wait till tomorrow for my copy to arrive.
    It’s so weird that there’s not even a single FAQ on gamefaqs. What the hell happened there.

    Got it on the PS4

    Really fun, pretty much done exactly how I would want a FF7 remake to be

    Classic rpg battle system with next gen graphics for the world and stuff

    Seriously tho the world and interactions are great, I haven't seen this much detail in a classic rpg before

    Really impressed so far with the graphics and music though I'm still pretty early in the game. To be precise, just finished the coming of age part. Need to wait for the weekend to properly devote time to explore.

    Liked the opening sequences which were quite fast paced.
    Spoiler:
    The council of kings (?) looked great. Can't recall but I think this is the 1st time in the DQ series that the MC's noble heritage/origin was shown right at the start.

    The game is fun and all, but it’s by far the most brain dead rpg I’ve played in a while.
    Let the player at least do some exploring or puzzling of their own. This game literally tells you to go from a to b and if you manage to fuck that up, it’ll show on the map where you have to go or what to do.
    I mean come on. I miss the old days when actually needed a brain to finish a game.

    This has to be the best RPG I've played this past decade, I've been fan of these series I was like 15 and it's everything I could ever hoped for, I specially appreciate how it was such a complete and polished game, with no need for DLC episodes because all of them are already in.

    It's just such a masterpiece.

    As promised, Square Enix held its latest broadcast for Dragon Quest XI S today. Quite a bit of information was shared throughout the hour-long presentation.

    First up, here’s a listing of the latest Japanese voice actors as well as brand new features for the Switch version:


    Latest Voice Actor Announcements

    • Protagonist (Baby) (Cry) – Touma Saito (Ayumi Tsunematsu’s son)
    • Kai (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura)
    • Booga (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura)
    • Masked Martial Arts Tournament Announcer (voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi)
    • Indignus (voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi)
    • Queen Marina (voiced by Atsuko Tanaka)
    • Grand Master Pang (voiced by Ayumi Tsunematsu)

    Additional New Features

    • Party members will follow you on the field.
    • You can talk directly to party members without opening the menu.
    • You can change the music from Orchestra to Synthesizer at any point by going to the sound settings in the menu.
    • You can dash with the ZR button.
    • By using the new “Horse Bell” item, you can call your horse at any time.
    • You can now gain experience points when your horse knocks away an enemy on the field.
    • You can change the battle speed to “Normal,” “Fast,” or “Really Fast.”
    • The quests from the 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI in which you visit the worlds of past Dragon Quest titles will be included in the Switch version, but not without changes.
    Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii didn’t attend today’s stream due to poor health. He did pass along a message, however, which touches on new voice drama DLC:

    “Thanks to everyone who made their voice heard, Dragon Quest XI S is being made to dive deeper into the story. And new story is also being added that allows you to experience each character as the protagonist. Through the unexpected sides of these characters and previously untold stories, I hope that you can be able to appreciate each character even more. I wanted everyone to further enjoy the drama of those characters, so I am actually making something as additional downloadable content. That something is a ‘voice drama.’ I would like to share more details now, but I should be able to share new information in June.”
