Holding off for the Switch version. Gonna be my default for multiplats that end up on it for portability. I suspect that the only reason for the late port is because the console is new. A year or so from now, I don't think these delayed releases will be a thing and the Switch version will come alongside the others.

I don't know what it is, but they said in July 2015 (2 years ago) that they were considering the NX for Dragon Quest XI. They seemingly had more than enough time to get a port ready.

Maybe, but just because they made plans to does not mean they had the dev kit. I mean the game could probably run on the WiiU, so it is not far fetched to think that they were confident it could run on Switch.

You may be right, but I will keep hope for a year or so before jumping to conclusions. It really could be either way in this case.

It's not that I think this may become common practice from here on. I expect most Switch multiplats that began development at the same time for all versions to be released in a similar timeframe from here on. But I assume SE would be among the first to receive a dev kit, so coupling that with the fact that we haven't even seen a screenshot from the Switch version yet, it may be that SE made some strange decision to not start working on the Switch port until much later, that won't be standard practice for other developers.
