Square Enix has announced that their latest entry in the Dragon Quest franchise, Dragon Quest Treasures, now has a demo available on Nintendo Switch.
- The Dragon Quest series creator recently stated that development on XII and III HD-2D has been going smoothly, with news on the latter arriving soon.
- Despite Dragon Quest Treasure’s evident similarities to the Monsters spinoff series, the game’s producer has announced that those titles will not simply “disappear.”
The precise length and contents of the demo aren’t stated, but it’s likely just the introductory elements comprising the tutorials and such. I doubt any of the open-world exploration will be present. However, progress from the demo can be transferred to the full game, and those who fully complete the demo will receive five Better Buddy Bullets for their time.
Dragon Quest Treasures follows Erik and Mia, both prominent characters from Dragon Quest XI, with Erik even having been a party member.
However, in this title, these siblings are taken away from the Viking ship they normally reside in to a new world called Draconia, housing a myriad of treasures, including the Seven Dragonstones. Conveniently, Erik and Mia can communicate with the monsters here, allowing for integral cooperation regarding treasure hunting.
