All of the other games included on the recent Xbox game showcase will be featured on Game Pass when they release but the addition of Dragon Quest XI will rival The Witcher 3 as the best RPG on the subscription service.
Xbox is putting effort into expanding their presence in Japan and the addition of one of their most popular series’ to the Game Pass lineup may be an enticing selling point for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
