E3 2018: New Dragon Quest 11 Trailer Shows Off More Story

Become a Luminary.


A new story trailer for Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age was unveiled during Square Enix's E3 2018 presentation and fleshed out more of the RPG's world. The iconic art-style from Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball, Chrono Trigger) was on full display, and we had a taste of the localized English voice acting.

Early in the game, you'll arrive at the city of Heliodor, where the main character Hero is referred to as a "Luminary", which is a common class title in past Dragon Quest games. Hero is sent to jail by King Carnelian, who seems to have a vendetta against luminaries, believing they're conspiring with darkness.

Dragon Quest XI comes to PlayStation 4 and PC worldwide on September 14, 2018, while the Nintendo Switch version does not have a release date yet. Pre-orders are now open and there will be two separate editions of the game. The game launched in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo 3DS in July last year and sold extremely well, with over three million units sold in a four-month period.
