Square Enix's "Dragon Quest 11" isn't arriving until sometime in 2017, but the studio is already making sure everyone knows their plans for the game. The latest news surrounding "Dragon Quest 11" is that Square Enix confirms the game for Nintendo Switch. The studio also shows off PlayStation 4 and 3DS footage of the upcoming game.

The news comes via Gamespot, which reports that "Dragon Quest 11" is arriving to Nintendo Switch as well as PlayStation 4 and 3DS. The announcement was made via a Japanese video, which hints at what's to come when the game is released next year. Now that Square Enix shows off PlayStation 4 and 3DS footage, fans can get a glimpse of what to expect in the upcoming game.

The "Dragon Quest 11" video starts off with PlayStation 4 footage that finds the gamer exploring a Slime-infested field. The gamer later mounts a horse and uses it to run over enemies in the way. Later in the video, fans can get a glimpse of 3DS footage, in which the gamer is exploring a town and mingling with townsfolk.

According to VG24/7, despite this new announcement that "Dragon Quest 11" is coming to three platforms (Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, 3DS), the studio is still keeping mum on the details. What we do know, however, is that the game is set in Rotozetasia and will be led by the main character, a 16-year old villager.

Also featured in the PlayStation 4 and 3DS footage of "Dragon Quest 11" is Camus, a blue-haired thief who is an ally of the protagonist in the game. "Dragon Quest 11" has no release date set as of the moment, but fans should keep checking back for more updates on the upcoming Square Enix game. "Dragon Quest 11" is directed by Takeshi Uchikawa.
