Next year, Japanese Nintendo Switch owners will be able to get their hands on Dragon Quest XI, the next entry in Square Enix’s storied RPG franchise.
The publisher took the stage at Jump Festa 2017, last week, to share some new information about the upcoming title, Gamer reports.
Dragon Quest XI’s main character is a young unnamed teenager. Upon turning sixteen, he discovers that he is the “reincarnation of the brave who once saved the world” and receives a mission.
He leaves the calm Ishii Village and then “steps into a vast world” to discover what a “brave” is with his own eyes.
Along the way, he encounters Camus, his blue-haired companion.
They travel around Roto Tetacia, a world created by the Trees of Life.
These trees can communicate with the “heart and soul” of the brave, and are “the root of all lives”.
The hero then makes his way through his adventure by defeating enemies in classic turn-based combat.

These photos showcase the PS4 version of Dragon Quest XI. The Switch version will probably look nearly identical, whereas the 3DS version has a different, distinct style.
The Square Enix-published RPG is set to be released for Switch, PS4 and 3DS next year, in Japan. No information about an international release has been shared thus far.
