Dragon Quest XI continues the gameplay of previous games in the series, in which players explore worlds and fight against various monsters, including the ability to explore high areas. The Nintendo 3DS version features a different style than the PlayStation 4 version, showcasing 3D graphics on the top screen and 16-bit styled sprites on the bottom screen. Before entering battle, players can also toggle between the 3D and 2D graphical styles. The game features the series' traditional turn-based battle system.

DRAGON QUEST XI is the long, slow, chill-as-heck JRPG whose generosity served me a banquet-style meal, consisting of 90 hours of conversational, party member hangoutitude; incredibly satisfying, old school battles (some which had me shrieking at my television); an entire second game’s worth of postgame content; and, most notably, the power to revitalise my love for long, slow, chill-as-heck JRPGs.
I fucking adore this game the world feels so real and is done fantastically. Every place feels like a real place with real people living there. The main characters (minus Jade, her character arc in the second half is kinda :/) are phenomenal, and the story is top notch.
