Ben Chard

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is the first mainline Dragon Quest on a console in 12 years, since the release of Dragon Quest VIII back on the PS2. It’s been a long wait for a spawling Dragon Quest adventure on consoles and Dragon Quest XI fails to disappoint. You’ll get to visit all manner of wonders during your time in Erdrea and meet a wide range of characters both charming and cunning. The game offers a multitude of activities to pursue along with an exhilirating post game at the end of it.

With it being more than a year since it’s release in Japan, the Western release of Dragon Quest XI sees a number of changes. Firstly, the game features full voice acting, something that was missing entirely from the Japanese release. The User Interface (UI) has had an overhaul, making it a lot more graphic than the traditional style the Japanese version went for. The Draconian mode adds more challenges to the list to customize your gameplay experience such as increasing the levels of enemies and decreasing the Experience Points you receive from lower level enemies. Finally, you can now dash on the field screen to get around the world at a quicker pace.

Dragon Quest XI features a wonderful story full of happiness and sadness, heroes and villains. It’s a journey that will take you a long time to reach it’s climax so strap in and let us guide you around the world of Erdrea.
