Nintendo's NX Might Have Another Confirmed Game

It sounds like Dragon Quest XI could come to Nintendo's next console.


We don't have any solid details on Nintendo' next console, the NX, other than a handful of its upcoming games, and it sounds like another one has been confirmed. In an interview with Nintendo Dream magazine (via Gematsu), series creator Yuji Horii said that Dragon Quest XI would come to the NX.

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai asked if the upcoming Dragon Quest would release on PS4, 3DS, and NX simultaneously, to which Horii replied, "That's right." He added that "the use of hardware is different for each system, so [development] is quite a challenge."

Now Playing: GS News Update: Dragon Quest XI Officially Announced for PS4, 3DS, and NX

Although it sounds like a confirmation, it's important to note that Hori originally announced an NX version when Dragon Quest XI was revealed. After this news, publisher Square Enix backpedalled and said it was "under consideration" for the mysterious console. Dragon Quest X is also being considered for the next Nintendo console.

In addition to saying it's coming to the NX, Horii spoke of the 3DS version of the game, which features both 2D and 3D styles of gameplay. You can see screenshots of both the 3DS and PS4 versions here.

Dragon Quest XI has no set release date in North America. Nintendo's NX is slated for a worldwide March 2017 launch, and if all three versions will actually release simultaneously, it's reasonable to believe it won't launch until then.
