Unboxing the Dragon Quest XI 11 Japanese Square Enix Online Special Edition PS4 + 3DS and US Release Date
The day has come… Today is finally July 29 ! !
We recieved something strange…. Dragon Quest XI ! !
Am super exited… lol
I would like to see how it look at Japan Post office how it look, full of BLUE Box with Slime face on it lol
As you may know Japanese Government asked to Dragon Quest makers to not release Draque during week days because it was making too many kids skip school to go guy it… lol so we are indeed Saturday !
I will do a Full Unboxing of it for you! And talk about what i felt…
Square Enix Online Slime Shipping Box
First the Shipping Box was Awesome… but now all my neighboors know i am a Dragon Quest Otaku… dont they… 😀
Its very well packed in a “Slime” Blue box, then another box, then another box then… The Sword Box.
Sword of the Brave – Yusha no tsuru gi – 勇者の剣ボックス アンボクシング
Woua! I felt it was beautiful 🙂 That Sword is full of memories… In fact i have a Full Size Version that came out some years ago 🙂 well…. i REALLY like dragon Quest lol
At that time already i can say i was very happy of getting That version of the game 🙂
Dragon Quest XI Double Pack Book Box
Then the 2 versions of the Game (PS4 + 3DS) come in those “Books” shaped boxes… There is a texture on it, and it look awesome…
Dragon Quest XI PS4 Unboxing
Inside of the Book there is “Autographes” of : Yuji Horii (Game Designer), Akira Toriyama (CHaracter Designer) and Koichi Sugiyama (Music Composer)…
As famous as they are you may feel funny that they dont have a “real” signature…. they just sign “their name”. Well Koichi Sugiyama have some kind of real signature as you can see… anyway their art and the emotions they put in our hearts is their signature :).
There is only one page front and back with a beautiful illustration, then the game box!
Hum… some old friends are hiding under the Game Box ^^
Something should be noted here… is that unlike 98% of the games recently, THERE IS a booklet in Daragon Quest XI… well its just 6 pages but i appreciate the gesture really…
Just some days ago i was reading some “Nes” manuals and i was feeling it was so much fun as a kid to get a new game, get back home and first read the manual with some snacks before playing the game… there was many illustrations, stories, list of items… it was great… i am sad that now that doesnt exist anymore… for example a game like Zelda Breath of the Wild dont have any manuals… its sad for suck a big games….
Well, in Japan we have some differents “Guide Books” for each games that come out… so it can help but its different because they go in much details so it can be used as just an “appetizer” lol you have to be careful…
There also was a “coupon” to get 2 costumes in the game.
Dragon Quest XI Nintendo 3DS Unboxing
The inside of the Book is same for both version. But the illustration under the game is a different one ^^
Again there is a small manual… ^^
Dragon Quest XI Double Pack US Release & Date
As for the America Release Date, we now know it will be in 2018 and it will be called ” Echoes of an Elusive Age” !! My feeling after unboxing that edition is that… it may very well come outside of Japan.
Because The Sword Box, as well as the Books Boxes dont have any writtings in Japanese on them… my guess is that they did so to not have to make any change for a future Usa/Europe version… they can just package the same set with the foreign PS4 and 3DS Versions of the game and DONE!
Only thing i am not sure about is if there is a “market” outside of Japan for “Both Version”, i mean i am not sure that Square Enix will be confident packaging 2 versions of the “same” game in one box outside of Japan… But like i said i feel they were careful enough to not put any japanese writtings on them so… it may very well be in their plan… 🙂
Good For You! ^^
As for the game itself Coming in America and Europe Yuji Horii said :
“The game is currently being localized into five languages, including English,” Horii said. “There’s quite a lot of text, so it’s an exorbitant amount of work. But we’re doing our best and working hard to get this game to all of you as soon as possible.”
Square Enix said :
“More details about the Western version will be revealed in Fall 2017”
My guess is in the Fall mean around the time they will announce the “Nintendo Switch” version of the game… so they will do all at the same time. ^^
