Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition is coming to Switch this fall, as announced during today’s Nintendo Direct. Dragon Quest XI previously launched on PC and PS4 last September, but the Switch edition comes with some new goodies.

The game features both Japanese and English voice acting, as well as a fully orchestrated soundtrack for the first time. If you somehow don’t love the gorgeous 3D anime art style, you can choose to play from a nostalgic 16-bit overhead view, too, which was previously exclusive to the Japan-only 3DS version.

For those who already beat the game, there are new stories focusing around the cast of supporting characters. It remains to be seen how these exclusive missions are accessed.

Dragon Quest XI is one of my favorite JRPGs of all time, and I can’t wait for a whole new crop of players to experience it for the first time. I’ll definitely be going back for the double dip when it comes to Switch!
