Square Enix has released the first batch of screenshots for Dragon Quest XI, which has been announced for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS.

Until now, images of the game have been captured from the livestream during which the publisher announced the game. The new screenshots, however, are captured directly from the game.

The shots, which were posted on Japanese gaming site 4Gamer, show environments from the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

The areas featured in the screens, above, include a marketplace and sprawling field, as well as a dungeon in which the hero can be seen battling Dragon Quest enemies.

The screenshots of the 3DS version, meanwhile, demonstrate its two visual styles. The first is a 3D rendering technique that recent portable Dragon Quest games have used, while the second is a 2D display reminiscent of SNES-era entries of the Japanese role-playing series.

Square Enix officially announced the Dragon Quest XI release on July 25, 2015. Although Square Enix initially confirmed Dragon Quest XI and Dragon Quest X will be released on Nintendo NX, it did not provide any specific details on this, and later said it was only being "considered."
