Dragon Quest coming to PC and PS4 Sept 4th. Switch version still has a "long way to go."

NA and EU not getting it on 3DS. Damned shame. The 3DS is pretty much a DQ machine for me and I was really looking forward to it.

Quote:
There's a trade-off, though: North America and Europe aren't getting the Nintendo 3DS version of the game because Square Enix wants to avoid dividing its focus. "Our aim with Dragon Quest XI and the Dragon Quest brand is to grow the audience in the West," the company explains in an email distributed earlier this week. "From a business point of view, it made strategic sense to release the 3DS version in Japan in 2017. For the West in 2018, it made the most sense to focus on the PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) platforms."

Yeah it is a shame. With 6 other mainline DQ games on the DS/3DS, and all the other late 3DS games you think it would be a no brainer.

Plus the monster install base. I really don't agree with the decision.

There were rumblings when the game launched in Japan that Sony a timed exclusivity deal for the console release of DQXI. That is looking more and more true as DQXI is an Unreal 4 game and everyone and their dog seems to be able to port their Unreal 4 games to the Switch in no time at all.

I am shocked that the 3DS version for NA and EU has been cancelled... but then again Square has been awful at supporting the DQ series in NA and EU for over 20 years now and that always makes me as I love this series.

I only have like 6 games total for 3DS, so I wasn’t even aware.

Switch users dicked over on another big third party game. What a surprise. Sucks given DQ is one of my favorite game franchises bit this is nothing new for Square-Enix with their horrible North American decisions.

Switch has sold 4 million units in Japan as of its 56th week on shelves.

That's 2 weeks behind the Wii.

It appears the Switch was discovered to be not USB-C compliant and even Power Rules compliant back in May 2017. People have dug up this after problems with Third Party docks arose. The Switch tablet also draws higher AMPs at 3.0a, when it should be 2.6a. https://t.co/AiFkTCOJ6z https://t.co/8RMqnUhDoR

Well duh. It was talked about way back when Nintendo first announced that USB-C display splitter cables wouldn’t work as dock alternatives.

Edit: I just remembered they are called "break out" cables.

Amazon currently has it at $59 if you want to price match to knock off a few more dollars (It's $63 at Best Buy right now)

Has anyone used this grip? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B077V57CVV

Any other recommendations? I'm getting a bit fed up getting a sore thumb everytime I use it handheld mode.

Nope, but seems like it might work based on the photos.

I'd like something too. They seem too thin when I try to hold it too long. Cramps the inside of my hands. I'm not in handheld mode too often though

Same. I’ve thought of buying something if I could find one that I can leave on when docking it, but I just don’t play handheld mode enough to justify researching them or shelling out the money.

I really only play handheld in short bursts at home when watching a sporting event in the background or on the few “relaxing” trips we take where I have downtime in the room or by the pool etc. (most of our vacations are international and chock full of sightseeing with little downtime other the flight and hard to justify the bulky Switch for just the flight).

In the Switch version of DKC:TF not only is DK playing a Switch (instead of a New 3DS XL) in his idol animation, he has gotten himself a nose job.

Tropical Freeze in 1080p on my 65" OLED will be a dream come true. I'm especially looking forward to the Lion King stage.
