Today, Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI is headed to the Nintendo 3DS, PS4 and Nintendo NX. While Nintendo’s mysterious NX system was changed to a “we are looking into it” status, we find it VERY interesting that the RPG giant mentioned Nintendo’s newest project during today’s announcement. We don’t know what shape or form the new NX will take, but it is certainly an interesting development to hear from developers regarding the system. You can read all about the upcoming game, below:
