Square Enix Shows New Dragon Quest XI Gameplay, Announces DQX Japanese Release Date

Just before the weekend, Square Enix showed off some new Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time gameplay alongside announcing the Japanese retail release date for its MMO, Dragon Quest X.

In the video below, you can watch gameplay from the PlayStation 4 version of DQXI between 31:00 and 46:00. If you’re interested in seeing the 3DS version then you can continue watching up until 55.00.

Square Enix also unveiled a “Restricted Play” system for Dragon Quest XI. According to a translation by Siliconera, players looking for a challenge can choose certain restrictions when playing. For instance, you can turn on shopping restriction, which will prevent you from buying items so you’ll have to rely on searching, looting and crafting.

As for Dragon Quest X, Square Enix announced that the MMO will release in Japan on August 17 for PS4 and September 21 for Nintendo Switch. It’ll come in an “All In One” edition that includes versions 1-3 of the game. The package will be priced at 4,800 yen with a monthly fee of 1,500 yen for five characters on PS4.

You can apply here (note: it’s in Japanese) to participate in a Dragon Quest X beta test, which will run from July 19 to August 10.
