Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age producer Hokuto Okamoto Told Polygon that the Nintendo Switch version of the game is still in development.

"We’re making it," said Okamoto. "We’re still making it. I can’t say anything more."

 
 
"When we first announced [Dragon Quest XI], the Switch hadn’t come out yet, and the development kit also wasn’t finalized," he added. "The hardware specs weren’t out yet, but we were like, 'We can manage this. We can put this out on the Switch.'"

The development team is "taking care of all those many things" that need work before the Switch version launches.

Wonder if it would have been better to wait until they had at least a release window like Dark souls, or if just "it is coming" is enough.

"But... It's a simple looking game. They managed to get Doom done, so everything should be possible without any hassle! Dragon Quest XI's requirements and Doom's are the same! S-E is only incompetent! I know, because I say so!" /s

That is one long /s. I'll have to check the rulebook but with that many statements you probably needed at least two /s.

I ask again: what the hell have you been doing for 16 months since UE4 support was added? "Oh but they wanted the full, fat support, that was early stuff!" Ok, what have they been doing for the last 14 months since that full support was added? "Oh no, no, they HAD to finish the PS4 version first see!" Oh ok. So what have they been doing for the last 10 months? Hwat? Cause they have FUCK ALL to show. It's freaking shameful. Pathetic. Incompetent on some level.
