Some heartfelt news came out of the Dragon Quest XI S countdown live stream earlier today. In the stream, developers on the game had a chance to talk about Satoru Iwata. Dragon Quest XI S’s development started long before the Switch released. Satoru Iwata was the one who approached Square Enix and the Dragon Quest developers to bring the game to Nintendo’s new hardware. The promise was finally delivered by the developers as mentioned in the stream. Smash Bros. Ultimate Director Masahiro Sakurai was present for the countdown stream as well, a long time friend of Satoru Iwata.
