Dragon Quest XI Brimming With Adventure




Jump Festa’s new look at Dragon Quest XI has ensured fans that the game will still boast the same old RPG goodness the series is known and loved for, something that other long standing RPG franchises have not exactly guaranteed to their fanbases…

Dragon Quest XI’s opening cinematic:

Gameplay of both the PS4 and 3DS versions:

RPG fanatics can begin the grind once Dragon Quest XI makes its way to Japan in 2017 for the PS4 and 3DS.

    Because Toriyama has one style, and if you don't like it you hate anime and dragon quest!!!!

    Isn't it kinda funny how main title Dragon Quest games outsell Final Fantasy ones, yet likely cost at least half if not less to produce? Dragon Quest games don't have lengthy development times, nor are they overly complicated. The team somehow produces a decent main series game every few years.

    Doesn't Final Fantasy actually sell better in the west than it does in Japan? Or am I just completely dumb?

    Not so difficult when Japan has 120M people and the rest of the world has 7B.

    My post above was talking about sales in Japan. Speed typing kinda screwed me there, apologies. I felt this needed mentioning to avoid any misunderstandings.

    they both suck to the level, where literally no one will buy a single copy of a new game unless it is called "final fantasy __" / "dragon quest __"

    This art was funny when we watched Dragon Ball Z 15 years ago but today I don't see how this should attract Witcher3 or Skyrim player in the non japanese speaking world. Unlike Kingdom Hearts or Ni no Kuni. And I doubt much of the adult humor will survive the western (US) translators.

    i played the heck out of both skyrim and the witcher 3, most rpg's really and am still a big fan of this artstyle. not everything has to be "realistic" or purdy.

    but ye.. translations are a worrysome thing as usual, though they did a pretty decent job keeping adult humor in dragon quest builders.
    so we'll see ^^

    This art style is way before DBZ, do some research before opening your young ignorant mouth

    Dragon Quest 8 kept things plenty funny back in the day when I played through it. I like this style of graphics when it comes to an rpg. I really dislike how Skyrim and Witcher play compared to other rpgs. They're different styles and that's why it's nice. Also do you really think people don't like the DBZ art style any more? Hell it's whats keeping Toonami on the air right now.

    I hate to admit and, and otherwise the game looks great, but there's something off-putting about "Akira Toriyama Eyes" on 3D CGI cutscene characters.

    On lower-res polygon characters like on Dragon Quest (and Blue Dragon) games on previous generations, the "Akira Toriyama Eyes" weren't as distracting because you could easily tell they were just flat 2D textures applied to polygons, but on polished modern CGI cinematics where they model every part of the eye instead of it being a texture, it looks weird.

    I don't personally mind that, but I get what you mean.

    Two things noted in the video: the fanfare from Dragon Quest 1-3, and Erdrick's Sword (Kings Sword in DQ3) ... would this game possibly take place in Torland?

    The CG is very impressive, art wise. Would love to see a DBZ movie base on this rendering technology and art style. While the in-game render isn't CG level, it's not bad either. Eventually they will release a PC version and I hope to see higher visual fidelity from the CG get carry over.
