What new content/features would you like to see in Dragon Quest XI S?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I think it's a very self-explanatory question since very little Dragon Quest XI S information has been revealed so far. And I've thought why not start off 2019 with some Dragon Quest XI S discussion? Although what's discussed here may or may not appear in the final product, I think it's still very fun to talk about it. Anyway, without further ado, here are the new content/features I would like to see in Dragon Quest XI S.

1) I'd like to have the option of switching between 2D mode and 3D mode in Dragon Quest XI S. I think it'd be very nice to choose between the classic 2D visual style (like shown in the 2D mode of the Nintendo 3DS version) or the HD 2D visual style (like shown in Octopath Traveler) for the 2D mode. And obviously the 3D mode is solely based on the Unreal Engine 4 visual style (from the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions), which I'm totally fine with.  (I'm so happy that Dragon Quest XI S will have the option of switching between 2D mode and 3D mode! Thank you, Square Enix!)

2) I'd like to have an option to access "Travel Memories" from certain places in Dragon Quest XI S. I really love the idea of being able to looking back at important story cutscenes in certain places in any visual style you choose (whether it's in 2D mode or in 3D mode).

3)

 

I'd like to be able to access Yocchi Village and partake in the Labyrinth Beyond Time and/or the Yocchi's Important Mission in Dragon Quest XI S. I love the idea of being able to gather Yocchi from the overworld and accessing the dungeon that only the Yocchi can access with the Yocchi you've gathered throughout your journey. And I also love the idea of being able to travel to the worlds of previous Dragon Quest games to solve problems that occurred there.

4) I'd like to have the option of choosing between choosing the movesets one member at a time (like with the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions) or choosing the movesets as an entire team (like with the Nintendo 3DS version) during battle in Dragon Quest XI S whether it's in 3D mode or in 2D mode. I've really enjoyed choosing the movesets one member at a time based on how much I've played the Steam version so far. But I think having the option of choosing the movesets as a team during battle will make battles a little more challenging, forcing players to strategise what type of movesets to choose from as an entire team since monsters can sometimes be unpredictable with critical attacks, and so on.

I think that's all of the new content/features I'd like to see in Dragon Quest XI S. But feel free to what new content/features you'd like to see in Dragon Quest XI S. And who knows? Maybe the new content/features you brought up that you would like to see in Dragon Quest XI S is something I'd never thought about.

Having a female variation of the hero is always nice.

Also, since XI S is “SIX” backwards, XI should retroactively be declared the 6th entry and have VI scrubbed from history and they should transplant Milly into the game as a party member. Just sayin’! Everything’s on the table!

No.

VI has one of the best soundtracks in the series.

I couldn’t hear the music over the sound of my anger and frustration at how bad it was taking hold and the sound of me tapping at my keyboard opening up walkthroughs trying to figure out where to go and what to do next.

It dos have one of the best soundtracks in the series. But Dragon Quest VII has THE best soundtrack of the series.

Spoiler

It’s so important that “the,” needs to be capitalized.

Act 2 Serena is the new Milly.

My number one feature, alternate marriages, is already in... so I’d have to go with Monster taming and maybe more casino games. I would also love to see more outfits from all the heroes of Dragon Quest like they did with VIII. Also a new ending and final boss would be sick as hell.

If I could, I would heart that post 10,000+ times.  Veronica is my favourite DQ lass.  Just needs her body restored to match her sister, and I'll be a happy man.  It would be really odd in the Switch version to pick her as my wife and not have her age to normal.

I don't know what I'd like to see in the Switch version, but I want it all to be available as a DLC for the PS4 version.

From how far I am, I don’t get the hate-on for Veronica. She is actually what people pretend Maribel is. And what’s surprising is that I’ve seen that a lot of people hate Veronica!

Of everything stated in this topic, unfortunately, this is the only one that is never going to happen.  Maybe a fan patch at some point.

Every DQ release is intentionally unique in some way, even if it's minor (DQ1~3 having exceedingly minor adjustments to things for the 3DS/PS4 versions, for 2 and 3 it's cosmetic changes to sprite models).

I really detest the 3DS handling of Maribel.  They went overboard in making her as mean as possible.  She was far more practical and considerate in the PSX rendition.  Especially towards the middle and end.

You're absolutely correct though.  Veronica belittles people now and again like Maribel does, but it's based on practical application from her sense of things.  She's far more willing to dish out compliments and show a level of respect once earned.  Plus she rarely reminds people of past mistakes, only those made in the moment, and she's more willing to accept personal responsibility.  So similar, but far more toned down and aware of herself...a wiser and more experienced version of Maribel.

I wouldn't say it's what people pretend Maribel to be.  Again I would say the 3DS rendition does poorly by her.  Even her humble moments are greatly toned down so she has an air of arrogance laced in every word, which was never present in the PSX.  I would say that Veronica at the start is Maribel by Hubble.  Veronica by Octagonia is Maribel by end-game, but you do have to admit their personalities are very similar.

I think some men get way too turned off by tsundere-type women, assuming they're #$*!es, rather than just laughing at their attempts to mask their true feelings, which is always the best approach.  It's how a lot of strong-personality women tend to be to in some respect.  More like Veronica and late Maribel but as a child Maribel.  Used to be called "headstrong," and a type of tomboy.  The type of girl who, if she likes you, until she's ready to let you know, will make sure to pick on you an insult the most to mimic what boys do to one another, only her version of it.

Plus, one has to factor in two elements:

1) Maribel is 16, Veronica is I think 18.
2) Maribel grew up pampered, spoiled, with nothing to do, no weight of responsibility except to not sneak on board the boat.  Veronica grew up with the weight of responsibility, and studying how to handle herself alongside Serena, for when both enter the world in search of the Luminary, and the training they would need after having found him.

Nah, she's Maribel-lite. She has the temperament of Maribel, but it's never misdirected. Maribel is self-important, entitled and arrogant. I never got that vibe from Veronica.

One key difference is that she’s aggressive and rude and bullheaded just like Maribel, but also quick to feel guilty and apologize when she realizes she was wrong to be.

Also I’m pretty sure Veronica likes the Luminary. She gets all pissed when she sees you with Gemma.

Well...Maribel was spoiled by her parents.  Veronica was instilled with a sense of responsibility.  It speaks volumes about the types of women Horii tends to attract to himself, and his experiences with each one and likely their backgrounds, as I'd imagine that's the inspiration for a lot of those characters given how often he places headstrong pretty tomboys in his games as core characters.  Starting with Alena.

That was obvious by just prior to Arboria.  Her party chat is very flirtatious by that section.  The top of First Forest...that was telling indeed.  She clearly had fallen head over heels for him at that point.  No projection there.  We're only given an understanding of this more fully with the Arboria quest about the love letter their first incarnation wrote about the first Luminary.  Seems that based on all accounts, Veronica absorbed most of Serenica's personality and with that, her sense of desire for the Luminary which is rekindled over the course of the game.  Serena isn't sure what to do with herself half the time if Veronica isn't present.

 That's literally how forgettable she is.  Until a certain event in Act 2, she never struck a cord with me.  Always a tad off-key, and a bit too plucked and not finely tuned for my taste.
