The non-Definitive version of Dragon Quest XI was delisted on Steam and the PlayStation Store

The non-Definitive version of Dragon Quest XI was delisted on Steam and the PlayStation Store

To make way for Dragon Quest XI S today

In a move that probably won’t hugely affect that many people but is still interesting to note, Square Enix has stopped selling Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age on the PlayStation Store and Steam in favor of only offering the just-launched Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition.

The digital PS4 version of Dragon Quest XI is “not available for purchase” from the PlayStation Store and the PC version is “unlisted on the Steam store and will not appear in search.” So it goes.

In many regards, the Definitive Edition is a big step up from the prior release. There are worthwhile new features – like the labor-of-love 2D mode, a lovely orchestrated soundtrack, and an even faster battle speed option – but the visual fidelity took a hit, and that’s been a sticking point for some fans.

As previously noted by Square Enix, Definitive Edition is “a port of the Nintendo Switch version, so the graphics are not the same as they were for the original Dragon Quest XI for PlayStation 4. Please note, however, that the resolution and frame rate are at least as good as they were for the [original release].”

Of course, the bigger issue is that the publisher didn’t give players an upgrade path or discount. If you want to experience the new stuff, it’s gonna be $40, even if you bought the original edition.

At least there’s a gigantic demo!
