I wasn't really worried about it getting localized. It's too large of a game for them to not bring it worldwide.

DQXI for the PS4 & Steam will be released in the West on Septebmer 4, 2018.

The Switch version is still coming but is apparently a long way away.

The 3DS version won't be released in the West. Booooooo!

Maaaaaaan, WTF? No 3DS version? Someone better be working on a fan translation then, because the 2D/3D combo of that one looked awesome.

It sucks. I was looking forward to the 3DS version almost as much as the PS4 one.

Goddamnit. I told myself that no matter what, I was playing DQXI next after Kingdom Hearts 3. And then Nintendo comes along and says ‘nope, you’re waiting until Fall and buying it a second time!’

I’m very salty about this turn of events.

Now then, onto the video itself. The stream was over an hour long with small snippets here and there, but the key sections you'll likely be interested in are as follows:

- 42:00 – 3D gameplay, followed by 2D gameplay at 49:07
- 52:09 – New Features Gameplay, followed by a boss battle at 1:00:57
The 2D is looking good.

Dragon Quest monsters have taken over Japan.

Square Enix has announced Dragon Quest Walk for iOS and Android devices. It is developed by Colopl and due out in 2019 in Japan. A closed beta test for 10,000 iOS and 10,000 Android users will begin on June 11.

Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
What is Dragon Quest Walk?

Dragon Quest Walk is a location services-based game for smartphones. Become the protagonist and walk around the real world, which was become the world of Dragon Quest, to move forward on your adventure in an RPG like no Dragon Quest before it.

Walk the fields and talk to the townspeople while moving forward on your quest. Battle against various monsters, grow, prepare your equipment, and even challenge formidable enemies…

The Dragon Quest that has appeared on game consoles in the past has finally made the leap to the real world. Now, set off on your adventure!

System

A story that develops as you walk. Everyday life becomes an adventure. Set your destination from nearby spots and set off.

Landmarks

Quests will occur at each landmark. Various landmarks will appear all over Japan.

My Room

Build your own room in the world of Dragon Quest. Decorate your room with the furniture and items you obtain on your adventure.
At the Dragon Quest Walk announcement event, Dragon Quest series executive producer Yuu Miyake also mentioned the still not formally announced Dragon Quest XII. “By the way, about Dragon Quest XII, which I’m sure is on everyone’s mind—[Yuji] Horii and I are currently making preparations on series developments that will connect to XII. I think it’s still too early, but we would like announce it in some form, so please wait a little while longer.”
