Two Major Dragon Quest Games On Switch Are Now Permanently $10 Cheaper
The latest RPG and builder spin-off game are both now cheaper on the Nintendo Switch Eshop.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age: Definitive Edition S recently came to PC, Xbox One, and PS4, but the Switch version still has a feature over all of them--easy portability. Now players who want to jump in to the huge RPG on Switch--or who want to try Dragon's Quest Builders 2--can do so for slightly less money than before.
Nintendo of America has announced that both games have received a permanent $10 discount, knocking their price down from $60 to $50. This price will seemingly apply both at retail stores and on the Nintendo Switch Eshop.
This means, of course, that picking up both games will save you $20, compared to the previous price. Demos of both games are available if you want to try before you buy.
Starting today, #DragonQuestXIS: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition and #DragonQuestBuilders2 will have a new price of $49.99 MSRP!https://t.co/v9Vre3rSpzhttps://t.co/WKaCtViDSa pic.twitter.com/OI2WwuGjEy— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) December 7, 2020
In GameSpot's review of the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, the game earned a 9/10. "If you have been putting off playing this RPG masterpiece, this portable edition is absolutely the way to go--and if you want to revisit it, this version is the perfect excuse to do so," wrote reviewer Heidi Kemps.
The same reviewer awarded Dragon Quest Builders 2 an 8/10. "Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a great game, combining exploration, sandbox-building, questing, and town-management into a delightful package that will gladly suck up your time and put a big smile on your face," Kemps wrote.
If you have an Xbox One or Series X/S, or a PC capable of running it, Dragon Quest XI is also available on Game Pass.
