The demo spans “the entirety of the opening chapters,” according to Square Enix, and apart from being able to transfer your file to the full game, you’ll earn three stat-boosting Seed of Skill items as a bonus. It’s pretty wild to think about a demo exceeding the length (and quality) of full commercial games.
There’s a lot packed into this version of Dragon Quest XI, hence that long-ass name. This improved port of the Nintendo Switch game runs better and has all of the previous niceties like the orchestrated soundtrack, an ultra-fast speed toggle, Japanese VO, and the nostalgia-inducing top-down 2D mode.
Things get a little funky when you look into side-by-side-by-side comparisons of Dragon Quest XI, the Switch edition, and this Definitive Edition release, but I think the pros far outweigh the cons.
Is it just me, or has there been an influx of unusually generous game demos lately? I’m in heaven.
