    Red Exclamation Mark Dragon Quest Nintendo Switch



    At the Nintendo Switch Event it has been confirmed that both Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI will be released on the Nintendo Switch (tentatively in Japan). Also to be released Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2.

    No release date has been announced. There was also mentioned an unnamed new Square Enix RPG. Continue to check in with Eyes on Final Fantasy for more Square Enix/Nintendo Switch News as we receive it.

    Hasn't this been known for a while now?

    Technically, Heroes I and II being on Switch is new. But yeah, X and XI being on there is no news. Unless this is some roudabout way of saying the West will get it on there as well. Which I doubt this is doing. No official word on those two games getting here yet whatsoever.

    I should note that the Switch is region-free, so if they include English as a language option (doubt it, unless they plan on releasing it in the West) you can still play it.

    No you can't - at least for X - because SE have issued an IP ban on anyone not playing from Japan or China. The PC is region-free as well and yet people still can't play Dragon Quest X here.

    Dragon Quest X is an online game?
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Yes, which is exactly why we don't have it yet even though it's been out for years.

    Which is a shame since it's apparently different to most MMOs on the market and has one of the coolest stories in the series. And all the post-game quests are series throwbacks instead of just regular grind feats.

    Sigh

    The games are region-free. However, accounts are locked into a region, so using the e-shop & online support is tied to a region. Fortunately, Nintendo is allowing up to 8 accounts per Switch, so you can create an account for various regions. This probably can be used to play DQX outside of Japan. This video here explains the region thing a bit:

    Like I said, even if you make a separate account, you won't be able to log on to the game's server because of the IP ban. No lack of region locking will help you if SE themselves have issued an IP ban for all territories outside Japan and China. So you can download the change client, sure, but you won't be able to play anyway.
