Originally released in 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and PC, Dragon Quest XI S is now available for the Nintendo Switch with new features, including the 2D mode that was once exclusive to the Japanese Nintendo 3DS version of the game. Do these new additions greatly enhance the game?
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
The eleventh mainline Dragon Quest game has arrived on multiple consoles.
After an extended absence, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age brings one of the genre’s premier series back to western audiences. Pull up your comfy chair, because this epic JRPG doesn’t do things by half measures.
Soon, PS4 and PC owners can finally take advantage of Dragon Quest XI S’s additional features available on the Switch since last year. The game is also heading to Xbox One for the first time.
Lauren Coe is the voice actress for Veronica of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Elmon Dean Todd gets an exclusive interview about her role in the game, along with behind-the-scenes details of the recording process.
This week in Q&A Quest we discuss recent RPG news. We also go into a spoiler-filled discussion of Final Fantasy VII Remake near the end of the show, so be warned.
Join Anna Marie, Chris, Josh, and Kelley this week, as things get a little weirder than usual. A sticky soda fracas kicks off the show. Meanwhile, Kelley runs the news section for the first time, which is good since Chris stomps off after discovering this is definitely the worst timeline of them all. And don’t forget, #JRPGJuly continues for one more week!
Dragon Quest XI S will be coming to new platforms in December. In addition to letting PS4 and PC players access the improvements over the original version, the release will also see the series make its Xbox debut.
Happy #JRPGJuly everyone! The RPGamer crew is back for another round of Chic Pixel’s annual celebration, and we are here to share what staff are going to be playing this month!

We’re back and better* than ever! On this special episode of the RPGCast we do a deeper dive into what we’ve been playing and discuss our holiday hauls.
*Note: RPG Cast 526 may not actually be better than any other previous RPG Cast.
Jonathan crashes the RPGCast this week because he heard that Chris, Anna Marie, Kelley, Peter, and Nathan were dissing on Tactics Ogre. We also discuss child care our Now Playing. But don’t worry, while the news is slim, it’s also pleasantly robust.
This week, Alex and Anna Marie can talk about their embargoed games, Peter finishes a game, and Chris worries about his cats. Kelley’s question of the week leads us down rabbit holes we probably shouldn’t have explored, but we’re doing it live and that’s how we roll.
Not much news, but there are many games out this week. We won’t play any of them though. Alice is on about Space Station 13, Kelley re-upped World of Warcraft, Anna Marie is playing Dragon Quest III, and Chris is still playing Final Fantasy IV.
In this special bonus Q&A Quest, a guest from the podcast’s past pays a visit. We discuss all things Zelda and Dragon Quest.

While Fire Emblem: Three Houses seems to finally be put aside by most folks, a few are still learning the dangerous pitfalls of gift giving. As usual, cats and Robin Williams are discussed. Then someone pre-orders Pantsu Hunter and someone else tries to shove CDs into an iPhone to get monsters.
Switch owners can now play through the opening portion of the Luminary’s tale thanks to a free demo. The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI also put in an appearance at Gamescom, where Nintendo showed off nearly half an hour of gameplay footage.
This week in Q&A Quest we welcome the arrival of the Dragon Quest XI hype train. We also discuss the recently released Grandia Collection.
The wait is almost over for Nintendo Switch owners to participate in the Luminary’s grand adventure. A new trailer beckons to the world of Erdrea on September 27.
The Luminary’s quest sees them team up with an assortment of allies. In the upcoming Switch version of the game, those allies will get their own side-stories.
