The recently announced Dragon Quest XI for Nintendo 3DS has two faces, one that visually features a modern aesthetic and one that hints nostalgia.
On Monday, video game developer and publisher, Square Enix, unveiled the latest title in the Dragon Quest series during a press conference held in Japan. While a release date has yet to be announced, as well as a Western reveal, Dragon Quest XI appears to display two versions of the video game at once.
As you can see in the video above, the top screen of the Nintendo 3DS portrays a modern aesthetic and appears to be a normal 3DS game, while the lower portion of the handheld showcases the same video game but with 16-bit graphics. Although the two can be visualized simultaneously, the modern look of Dragon Quest XI will dominate the handheld during enemy encounters.
Dragon Quest XI will be an offline experience for Nintendo 3DS owners and the development of this title is currently being considered for NX.
