During a livestream which was held in the early hours of this morning, Square-Enix Japan has unveiled the release date of Dragon Quest XI, also revealing new details about the longevity of the game and showing new gameplay sequences.


Square Enix has finally announced the release date for Dragon Quest XI for Japan, confirming that the game will be available much sooner than any optimist could expect.

It will be on July 29, 2017 that the long awaited epic game of Square Enix will be released in Japanese and Asian stores, and there is also the possibility to purchase a special edition with the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4 versions in one.

The three videos (posted on the YouTube channel of DualShockers) show 20 minutes of gameplay, focusing particularly on the battles and the combat system, allowing at the same time to give a first look also at some scenes and dialogues.

Along with the revelation of the release date, Square Enix has also shared two new trailers of the game, one for each version, and confirmed that Dragon Quest XI takes about 50 hours to finish the story. If you want to follow the optional content, you’ll have about 100 hours to play.

Recall that Dragon Quest XI will be available in Japan on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS from July 29, with no confirmation regarding any future launch window in the west.

Dragon Quest XI has not yet been announced to the West, but Yuji Horii, responsible for the series, spoke earlier about this possibility and left good hopes.
