Dragon Quest X Version 4 Headed to Switch in November

At the Dragon Quest Summer Festival 2017, Square Enix has announced the next expansion for Dragon Quest X, known as “The 500-Year Voyage to a Far-away Hometown.” The game will be launching on November 16 for 3,800 yen in Japan. I am hoping we will get a localized version of the game from Square, so I will keep my fingers crossed.

I can’t wait to see more Square Enix titles for Switch… Where have they gone?! I was fully expecting to see/hear more about them during E3 2017. Check out the trailer below as well:

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Combat Gameplay Trailer

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is coming at the end of this month so Nintendo and Ubisoft decided to drop this all new combat gameplay trailer on us. The game is coming along VERY nicely and from what I have heard/read it may be one of those sleeper hits. The Nintendo Switch just seems like a natural fit for a title like this (quirky and goofy….not just Mario) so I will be eager to check it out myself later this month.

Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
