The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI boasts a number of new features, including dual audio that will allow players to change between English and Japanese voice actors at any time. Furthermore, Dragon Quest XI S is the first time the game delivers a fully orchestrated score, though players can switch to the original score at any point, if they so choose.

Despite these changes, the game’s main storyline remains the same. That is, the hero of Dragon Quest XI bands together with a ragtag group, known as the Luminaries, as they evade their mysterious hunters and track down the cause of the darkness plaguing their land.

However, the Switch release will also contain new stories, one for each party member. These tales will place secondary characters in the spotlight, revealing hidden truths and new information about them.
