Square Enix has released new screenshots that show off some of Dragon Quest XI S' additional content for the Nintendo Switch.

We knew for a while that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age S was coming to the Switch in Japan, but Nintendo’s direct event (back in February) finally confirmed that it will also be coming to the west in 2019. Unfortunately, Square Enix are "undecided" about whether they will additionally release the enhanced edition for PlayStation 4 and PC later on, but as of right now there’s lots of additional content for Nintendo Switch enthusiasts to look forward to judging by these newly released screenshots.

Per Siliconera, Square Enix’s newly released screenshots for the “definitive version” of Dragon Quest XI show off some of the new features including 2D mode which has nostalgic visuals inspired by the game’s 3DS version.
