Delisting

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was delisted on Steam and PlayStation 4 on December 4th, 2020. This was the same day that Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition was released on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The delisting was certainly designed to avoid confusion between the differing versions but also likely to incentivize consumers to buy the newer release. Despite offering more content at a cheaper price than the original release, a point of contention has been raised about the performance of the Definitive Edition as well as the lack of an upgrade option for existing owners of the 2018 original.


About the Game

DRAGON QUEST® XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age™ tells a captivating tale of a hunted hero and is the long-awaited role-playing game from series creator Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama and composer Koichi Sugiyama. While it is the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, DRAGON QUEST XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to longtime fans and franchise newcomers alike. After its release in Japan, DRAGON QUEST XI won multiple gaming awards and received critical praise, including PlayStation’s Platinum Prize and a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu (an influential video game publication in Japan).

Story

A young man, about to participate in his village’s coming of age ceremony, travels to a Sacred Stone alongside his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.

The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past… but the welcome he receives is far from warm. Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.

Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually The Luminary reborn. The hero and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.
