In case you’d like to have a better look at the way Dragon Quest XI is shaping up before launch, Square Enix decided to show off a little more. Yesterday, the company held a special livestream on Twitch, featuring members of their marketing and PR department in America chatting with Assistant Producer Hikari Kubota, series creator Yuji Horii, and Game Director Takeshi Uchikawa, as they talked about the game for about an hour and a half. The main highlight, other than hearing new information about the game, is that we get to see a bit of a boss battle against a giant squid.
If you go to the 49-minute mark, you’ll see the team join a boss battle in progress as they are aboard a ship fighting against a creature known as the Tentacular. The game is presented in the English version, so while the team is giving translated commentary, you can read what’s going on in the game. The video gives a nice bit of insight as to handle boss fights and make them work to your advantage rather than feeling overwhelmed right out of the gate. You’ll be able to try it yourself in a couple months as Dragon Quest XI is set to be released on September 4th.
