    • Even more Quality-of-Life and feature updates such as “Change Perk Level”, “Max Limit / Auto-Rematches Increased to 100” and more have been added for players to take advantage of as they adventure through the world of DRAGON QUEST TACT.

Dragon Quest Tact allows players to befriend, team up, and lead a group of monsters through numerous encounters. Throughout this adventure, players can assemble a roster of monsters from across the Dragon Quest series to take into battle. Through fights, monsters will level up, but players can also equip and customize them as well.

Battles in the game feature a layer of strategy as players move monsters on the field to get an advantage over the opponent. Furthermore, monsters have special abilities, strengths, and weaknesses that need to be taken into consideration. Finally, monster collecting is kept separate from the game’s gacha systems, as players are free to grow their monsters.

Dragon Quest TACT is directed by Yuji Horii and features music from composer Koichi Sugiyama and monster designs from Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama.

Dragon Quest TACT is available now on iOS and Android devices.
