This article is over 4 years old and may contain outdated information

Dragon Quest XI S is launching in around one month on Nintendo Switch, and Square Enix provided a playable demo which allows players to try out some of the new features included in this definitive edition. The demo, unfortunately, suffers from some issues, and Square Enix acknowledged them today.

Producer Hokuto Okamoto recently talked about the Dragon Quest XI S issues, confirming that the team was not able to replicate them on the development kit.

According to the producer, these issues are likely related to the reading and writing of the SD card, and they are usually fixed by simply re-installing the game’s data.

However, it seems like the Dragon Quest XI S issues are not fixed this way. The team has yet to find a solution, but once it does, multiple updates will be released for the demo.

The presence of these issues is definitely worrying, as the game is releasing very shortly worldwide. At the same time, it was a very good thing that Square Enix released a demo, otherwise, the issue would have been present in the final release as well, and it may have taken some time for players to be able to enjoy the game without any problem.

Dragon Quest XI S launches next month on Nintendo Switch in all regions. The game is also available on PlayStation 4 and PC, but without the many additions coming to the new release, such as the 2D mode, additional character stories and more.
