Dragon Quest XI S PS4 Pro 60fps

A playable demo for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age just launched on PS4, and it confirms that the game runs at a seemingly rock solid 60 frames-per-second on PS4 Pro.

When the title was announced for Sony's system earlier this year, there was some slight confusion over how the game would run, seeing as it is essentially a port of the Nintendo Switch version that released in 2019. It's capped at 30 frames-per-second on Nintendo's hybrid console, but that frame rate's being doubled on the PS4 Pro.

Naturally, this also means that Dragon Quest XI S will hit 60fps on PS5 when played via backwards compatibility. Nice to know, seeing as the game's set to launch in December, after the PS5 hits store shelves.

What's more, the quicker load times of the Switch version appear to have carried over on PS4. That said, there is still some concern over Dragon Quest XI S' graphical fidelity — even on PS4 Pro. Again, this is basically a Switch port, and so certain assets are of a lower quality than they were in the original Dragon Quest XI on PS4. The resolution's been ramped up, but that's about it.
