Dragon Quest XI S Progress – Beware of 2D / 3D switching!

Dragon Quest XI S Progress – Beware of 2D / 3D switching!

Due to the way Dragon Quest XI S was developed, there is a possiblity thath you could lose your progress if you switch between 3D and 2D too often.

Be warned about 2D/3D

In order to avoid this while switching between 3D and 2D, you must complete the current chapter you are playing first, and select it the moment it appears when you’re headed for the next chapter.

If you save in the middle of a chapter, you will have to start over the next time you play the game. 

Now the big warning – If you pick a prior chapter than the current one you’re on, it resets the entire story to that chapter. As an example, you’re on chapter 4 of the story and you were curious about the 2D mode, so you pick the very beginning.

Your levels and inventory carry back with you, but this seems to “reset” the entire story back to the beginning, so if you accidentally did this on your main save file, you will have to play through the story all the way again. When you try to make the switch back to 3D, the only chapter you’ll have available is the beginning and you need to unlock the chapters again by progressing through the story.

Big oversight by Square Enix it seems … let’s just hope they are able to patch this soon.
