Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age S Gets Stage Show In Japan

Despite being announced for the Nintendo Switch before the Switch was officially announced, we have yet to see a single screen or video of Dragon Quest XI S. It looks like that’s about to change on December 22 at the Jump Festa 2019 in Japan. That’s because there will be a 50 minute stage show devoted to the game. The producer, director and special guests will be present. Let’s hope it’s not 50 minutes of them talking while only showing the logo! Of course other games will be shown off from Square Enix as well. Gematsu reports:



  • Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! (PS4, Switch) – Stage, Trailer
  • Dragon Quest Builders 2 (PS4, Switch) – Playable, Stage, Trailer, Present
