Following the broadcast of the Dragon Quest XI Direct, Nintendo has announced that the game can now be pre-loaded on the Japanese Nintendo eShop.
By pre-loading the game, you can download most of the game before its release date. Once launch day comes, you can instantly start playing after downloading a few kilobytes of data.
You can pre-load the game here or on the Japanese Nintendo eShop.
Dragon Quest XI launches on Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 29, 2017. There’s still no release date for the Nintendo Switch version yet.
