Square Enix have confirmed that Dragon Quest XI is still in development for the Nintendo Switch but it may be a long way off. 

Earlier today it was revealed that the latest entry in the long running JRPG series, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age would be heading to PlayStation 4 and PC, in North America and Europe on September 4, 2018. 

Conspicuously absent from the announcement was the previously announced version of the game for Nintendo Switch.
However a spokesperson for Square Enix Europe has since confirmed that the Switch version is still in development for Nintendo's hybrid console. 

He said: "We are also developing the Switch version for Europe and North America, but development is expected to take a long time from a technological standpoint as well, so we still have a long way to go until its release."

Dragon Quest XI follows the perilous journey of a hunted hero who must uncover the mystery of his fate with the aid of a charismatic cast of supporting characters. With a quest that takes players across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world, Dragon Quest XI brings a massive, beautifully detailed world to life, with finely tuned turn-based combat and an immersive story aimed at fans and newcomers alike.

Promising over 100 hours of content, the Western release of Dragon Quest XI will also feature several new additions including: an English voiceover, hard mode, overhauled menus and User interface, improved camera and character movement, and a new dash function.

Along with the announcement Square Enix also released a new trailer giving players their first look a the English language version of the game.
