We’ve waited an awful long time—too long, perhaps—but the day has almost arrived.
That’s right; Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is officially headed west, and it heralds a rich, sprawling new adventure that’s already been hailed as one of the best JRPGs of modern times.
As a matter of fact, our own Lucas White awarded Dragon Quest XI with a 9.0/10 (and an Editor’s Choice award!) on the belief that Echoes of an Elusive Age is one of the most accomplished entries in this 30-year saga. That’s a compliment in and of itself, given the Dragon Quest series ranks pretty highly on the industry’s list of JRPG gems—up there with Final Fantasy and Shin Megami Tensei for its rich history and genre-defining titles.
And so, with the eleventh mainline installment due for a release this week, we’ve scoured the four corners of the Internet (and the PSLS archives!) to present to you everything you need to know about Echoes of an Elusive Age.
Let’s begin at the beginning, shall we?
Dragon Quest XI reaches PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 4th. A Switch port is also in the works, though Square Enix is yet to detail exactly when Echoes of an Elusive Age will expand onto the hybrid console.
