Just dropping by to celebrate another game in one of my favorite franchises coming out. I'll be waiting for English versions, but have fun everyone who is getting this game on Saturday

I am going to grab the 3DS version in a few days. Hopefully I can find it.

My coworker keeps taunting me about getting the import and playing the game before me. Wish I knew Japanese.....

Waiting for the localization will be all the more painful.

I can't believe it's been close to ten years since the last single player mainline game in the series.


Fuuuuuuuuuck.

I mean, if you're learning Japanese and willing to play with a dictionary at your side you can easily get by since all of the kanji has furigana above it.

Wish my Japanese was up to a level where I could actually enjoy this now. Will wait for the NA release, which will hopefully be sooner than later.

When I imported those games, I wasn't learning. I just learned what the basic battle commands were and went from there.

Again, huge fucking waste of money as I only vaguely knew what was going on in most of the games. Though, funnily enough, my impressions of the Japanese vs. the English versions were still pretty much the same once I did end up playing the English version.

My husband is going to be playing this while I watch, because he is fluent in Japanese.

Do we know yet, which version of the game the Switch port will be based on? I can't decide if I want to buy this on 3DS or PS4 and this will help influence my decision. I'm leaning towards the 3DS version as I have most of the series across the DS and 3DS, but the PS4 version looks so beautiful.

Yes, but it is extremely easy to modify a 3DS to play out of region games as long as it isn't in the absolute latest firmware.

I doubt it, since the western versions of the 3DS games had downgraded music compared to Japan.

I'm confused about the 3DS version. Are 2D and 3D on the same cart? If so is it something you can swap between or do you pick from the outset and that's the mode you play through?

If you're on 11.3.0 or lower, then you don't need any games at all. Check out the guide here: http://3ds.guide

They're on the same cart. During the prologue, you play both simultaneously -- 3D on top screen, 2D on bottom. After that, you have to make a choice, but you can swap at will at any church.

Yes and ultimately that's how I'd rather experience the (hopefully eventual) English version, given I could take it on the go or connect it to the TV.

Ah, cool, sounds like a good way to do it. This is the first I've heard about this feature, but I haven't really been on top of DQ11 news

Yeah, it definitely won't come out on 3DS in the West, on that we agree :P

We'll see otherwise. In the meantime hopefully it's to this console generation what DQVIII was before

Going 3DS to start because my kanji is Weak and that furigana's gonna save me (plus portability means I won't be hogging the TV for a thousand hours as I slowly read each line), but I'll probably break down and get the PS4 version at some point too. looks so good

I think I'll go with the 3DS version then. I was going to import a physical copy but given it'll be available so soon, I'm just going to download it on the Eshop.

Thank you for posting! Hopefully helps build awareness for demand in the West.

I thought it might also be worth mentioning the (optional) restriction play system? I thought that was pretty cool how rpgs are starting to incorporate nuzlocke type stuff into the actual game.

Well, you can't be in the U.S. and Canada at the same time.


I know, I know, but this is what the 3D vs. 2D reminds me of. I'm totally going to refer to them as "America mode" and "Canada mode". . . good thing our version's gonna be PS4

Really interested about that 3DS version, and then "upgrade" to the PS4 one when it'll be localized since I doubt Square will bother with the 3DS one.
Hope I'm wrong and we'll get both, in the meantime I'll import it, but not for now since I'm kinda busy.
Thanks for the OT and I'll be sure to check back when I get my copy.

I would be shocked if there wasn't some sort of restriction due to the music.
I'd stream anyway via my capture card, though. Sugiyama can suck it.

The PS4 and 3DS trailers sync up so perfectly. It's obviously intentional. Watch them side by side to compare.

Ahhh good catch. Thanks for pointing that out! That's disappointing then, for those whose kanji reading levels are less than stellar. I've always found DQ and Pokemon games to be very import friendly to those learning Japanese.

There's a section on the official site where you can swap between the two just by clicking the screen. It's meant to be a comparison.
