During today's Xbox Games Showcase, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age was announced to be coming to Xbox One. It's an enhanced version of Dragon Quest XI with orchestral music, a 2D mode, and plenty of other enhancements and additions.

What exactly is Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age?

Originally released on Nintendo Switch, Dragon Quest XI S is an updated version of Dragon Quest XI that uses a newer version of Unreal Engine 4. Unlike the original base game on PlayStation 4 and PC, DQXI S features a full Japanese voiceover option. There's also the option to play the entire game in a 2D 16-bit style that's reminiscent of the SNES era of JRPGs which was adapted from the 3DS version of the game. DQXI S also offers a fully-remastered orchestral soundtrack and expanded plot elements. It's essentially the definitive version of Dragon Quest XI.

Dragon Quest XI takes place in the world of Erdrea and sees the player take the role of the Luminary, a legendary hero chosen by the World Tree to save Erdrea from an encroaching evil. It's an epic quest with plenty of hours of content for the ardent JRPG enthusiast. You'll be able to get your hands on Dragon Quest XI S when it launches for Xbox One on December 4th. It'll also be available via Xbox Game Pass for console, so if you're a subscriber to that service, you can check it out on the same day. No word yet on whether the game will be available for the PC's Game Pass service. We'll keep you posted on that and bring you more info as we get it.
