Dragon Quest XI for Switch Developed in Unreal Engine 4

Square Enix has confirmed more details for the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

The game was made and presumably ported to the hybrid console in Unreal Engine 4, news coming through series creator Yuji Horii at this year’s Epic Games Unreal Fest East (via Hachima).

Lots of attendees noted the Switch version is developed within Unreal Engine 4, suggesting the game is actually a port of the PlayStation 4 version and not an awkward port of the 3DS version.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has a western release set for sometime next year, for PlayStation 4.
