Dragon Quest XI’s gameplay varies on the console you play. In the 3DS version, there are two modes that you can toggle between while playing. One version of the gameplay is traditional to the early games of the Dragon Quest series where it is 2D, while the other is that of IX gameplay with a slight mix of the old style of gameplay. The PS4 version is similar to that of X gameplay, where it is more fluid than it would be on a handheld console, due to restrictiveness of quality on handheld consoles.
One version conspicuous in its absence is the previously announced Nintendo Switch edition of DQ11. The trailer makes no mention of it, despite Square Enix previously saying that it would be released simultaneously with other formats because “spoilers will emerge if we release one version earlier”.
