New Dragon Quest XI Trailer Highlights Its Colorful Cast Of Characters (VIDEO)
Earlier this year, JRPG fans were thrilled to hear that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age had been announced for a Western release. While the Nintendo Switch port is still a ways off, the PC and PS4 versions of the game are arriving next month, and Square Enix has begun to release new trailers building hype for the new JRPG. The latest new Dragon Quest Xi trailer gives us a new look at the game’s cast of characters, and they are quite the lively bunch! Check out the new trailer below:
Each character gets their own time to shine in the new trailer, revealing their names, taglines, and a glimpse at their playstyle. As the trailer mentions, “a great journey requires great allies,” and Dragon Quest XI doesn’t seem to be in short supply of them. Here’s the list of the characters shown in the trailer, courtesy of Square Enix:
Dragon Quest XI Characters
- Rab – An old gentleman swathed in mystery. Shouldering a large back pack, he appears to be nothing but a simple traveller, but when battle beckons he wields high level magic and ferocious martial arts skills. Who could this old man with almost limitless power really be?
- Serena – A dependable healer who supports the party with recovery magic. Serena is calm, unhurried and compassionate, but also slightly hapless. She often causes worry for her companion Veronica.
- Jade – An expert martial artist who travels the world with Rab to fulfil a mysterious goal. Her flashing kicks boast an unequalled power, but her elegant beauty and dignified demeanor hint that she is more than just a skilled fighter…
- Erik – A blue-haired thief who abandons his lucrative life of crime to team up with the hero. Although a little wild and rough mannered, Erik is a loyal and compassionate friend. As a seasoned traveller, he guides the hero and supports him along his way.
- Veronica – A gifted young girl who wields powerful offensive spells. Fearless and a bit of a tomboy, she will stand up to anyone, be they an adult or even a fearsome monster. Much more mature than her appearance would suggest, Veronica loathes being treated like a child.
- Sylvando – A travelling performer with a free spirit. Always cheery and positive, he is the mood maker of the group. Sylvando puts the skills he learned as a travelling entertainer to good use, expertly wielding a wide variety of weapons and abilities. His dream is to bring a smile to the faces of people all around the world with his art.
Dragon Quest XI releases for PC and PlayStation 4 on September 4, 2018. The Nintendo Switch version releases at some point afterwards.
