At E3 2019, Nintendo announced the release date for Dragon Quest XI S that is being branded as the definitive edition of one of 2018’s better games. Dragon Quest XI released on PS4 and Nintendo 3DS in Japan before releasing a year later in the West on PS4 and PC. The Nintendo Switch release has been confirmed for September 27th. Watch the E3 2019 trailer below:

If you missed the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news, The Hero (Luminary) from Dragon Quest XI is the next DLC character. The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI is titled Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition and it looks like both Nintendo and Square Enix have added enough new content to justify that mouthful of a name. An extended look at the Switch version on Nintendo Treehouse can be viewed below:

Some notable additions are party members following you on the field, fully orchestral music options (including one to use Dragon Quest VIII music), dual audio, forge anywhere, cosmetic equipment options that don’t affect stats, all the 3DS exclusive content redone for Switch, UI improvements, ultra battle speed option, changes to certain story moments, and a hugely improved photo mode.
