Hooray, we finally have some solid evidence that this game exists! The Switch version of the latest game in the world's longest-running JRPG series will be titled Dragon Quest XI S and include a few new features over its PS4 version:

- over 200 characters, excluding the main character, are voiced (it's unclear whether this aspect will be localized or not)
- choose from various characters to marry
- you can even choose Erik or Hendrik to live with you

Last but not least, there will be a Dragon Quest-related surprise on January 1st ERDRICK FOR SMASH DLC LET'S GO

I am more excited for this than I have any right to be, given I won't play it, ha ha. But my wife, she LOVES this series, and will dance upon hearing this news. Thanks for the heads up! :D

Here's hoping 2019 doesn't mean December, lol.

Iím surprised. Square-Enix was talking like the game was nowhere close to being finished for Switch. Iím glad itís coming though.

*Still bitter about not getting a localized version of the already complete 3DS version but happy to hear the Switch version is coming soon.*

Ditto. Want the 3DS version.

Oh you guys...

Just duct-tape two Switches together. Problem solved.

For some reason, I thought this announcement of an announcement was already announced.

Hopefully, there will be confirmation of a US release soon, though I've a feeling it'll be a 2020 game at this rate.

@GameDadGrant Same, seems different enough to be worthwhile alongside this one.

I had the idea that the Switch version would play like the PS4 version when docked, and then switch to the 3DS version when portable. The two games are probably too different for that to work though, but it'd be clever!

I think I'll actually give this game a try. I'm sad we won't get the two screen experience with the two different art styles as in the 3DS version, though.

Did we ever get it?

Set expectations on "absolutely nothing," because the surprise essentially turned out to be just that. Basically, it was some fortune-telling feature on the Japanese website for the game.

On the plus side, the Smash Bros. rumors place Erdrick as being likelier than ever, so stand by...

Is that his canonical name, or will they call him Loto?

@PogueSquadron Or is it Roto?

As long as it isn't I didn't look at the spoilers so I don't even know who it might be.
