This paper is concerned with the following quasilinear Schrödinger system in the entire space
 $\mathbb R^{N}(N\geq3)$
:
 \left\{\begin{aligned} &-\Delta u+A(x)u+\frac{k}{2}\triangle(u^{2})u = \frac{2\alpha }{\alpha+\beta}|u|^{\alpha-2}u|v|^{\beta},\\ &-\Delta v+Bv+\frac{k}{2}\triangle(v^{2})v = \frac{2\beta}{\alpha+\beta}|u|^{\alpha}|v|^{\beta-2}v,\\ & u(x)\to 0,\ \ v(x)\to 0\ \ \hbox{as}\ |x|\to \infty,\end{aligned}\right.
where
 $\alpha,\beta>1$
,
 $2<\alpha+\beta<2^* = \frac{2N}{N-2}$
and
 $k >0$
is a parameter. By using the principle of symmetric criticality and the moser iteration, for any given integer
 $\xi\geq2$
, we construct a non-radially symmetrical nodal solution with its
 $2\xi$
nodal domains. Our results can be looked on as a generalization to results by Alves, Wang and Shen (Soliton solutions for a class of quasilinear Schrödinger equations with a parameter. J. Differ. Equ. 259 (2015) 318-343).
