The Nintendo Switch has been a hotly debated topic on the Internet since it?s amazing reveal video first went up on YouTube.

However, this has only truly been confirmed for Japan. We still have to wait for a Western release of the game if they do plan to share it for the West as well.

But we can indeed be optimistic when it comes to waiting for a Western release for the game. This is because Square Enix had already promised before that they do have plans to support Western releases of the franchise this coming 2017. Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto revealed in an interview with MCV that lower popularity of the Dragon Quest franchise in the West has motivated them to share their creation with a larger global audience.
