Dragon Quest Monsters The Dark Prince will launch for Nintendo Switch on December 1, 2023. A free demo is now available via the Switch eShop.

In case you missed it, check out our impressions of the newly launched demo.

Be sure to check out our extensive coverage of this upcoming title.

In Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince, the demi-human protagonist, Psaro, was cursed by the ruler of the monster realm of Nadiria, also known as his father, making the youth incapable of harming any being with monster blood coursing through their veins.

To defy his fate, Psaro becomes a monster wrangler, amassing a sizeable monster following during his quest for vengeance. Additionally, he’ll make new allies, including the elf Rose and the enigmatic Toilen Trubble.

Combat will consist of eight party members, with four being active and another four being in reserves. Further, you can manually control your monsters’ actions every turn or set predetermined tactics to let the AI decide, like ‘Show No Mercy’ or ‘Focus on Healing.’

In battle, monsters can enter a frenzied state born from desperation in dire scenarios, enabling greater damage output and additional chances to perform an action. Players can also look forward to monster fusion and several season-based environments to traverse, each with their own creatures.
