With 30 years of history, you’d be hard-pressed to find an American fan who knows the ins and outs of Dragon Quest. Practically a cultural institution back in Japan, Dragon Quest hasn’t been nearly as successful here, though that’s thankfully been changing for a handful of years now. You can add one more title to that list of localized legends, as series game designer Yuji Horii took to Twitter to make a special announcement.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age can now officially be said to be coming to West, with five languages being added to the game. While it’s just released in Japan, it’ll take some time for the localization effort to be completed, meaning we won’t be seeing it until sometime next year. No systems were confirmed for the localization, either. That said, it’d be great to encounter Slime once again on the 3DS and for the first time on the Switch, so here’s hoping those behind the localization draw near to those platforms once the time comes.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
