Dragon Quest XI is officially coming West in 2018, will be titled Echoes of an Elusive Age
More Dragon Quest is always a good thing.
Dragon Quest, despite playing second fiddle to Final Fantasy all these years is anything but a slouch RPG. In fact, there's an argument to be made that the series' eight entry, Journey of the Cursed King, is one of the greatest JRPGs of all time. The game hasn't quite found its way into mainstream popularity here in the West, but thanks to the success of several spinoff games over the last several years that might be starting to change.
According to a new press release and a personal message from series creator Yuji Horii, Dragon Quest XI will be coming to the West.
Here it is:

Here's the description of the game provided by the Press Release:
The highly anticipated latest entry to the beloved DRAGON QUEST video game franchise follows the adventure of a hero who must solve the mystery of his fate with the aid of a charming cast of supporting characters. DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will offer a world of adventure, exploration and instances of heroism— all brought to life by the character art of famed manga artist Akira Toriyama and the memorable music of composer Koichi Sugiyama.
Square Enix did not reveal which systems the game would release for, but over in Japan, it is due to come out on PS4 and Nintendo 3DS with a potential Nintendo Switch version coming later. They also said that more would be revealed about the Western release this Fall.
