Dragon Quest Treasures Reveals Numerous New Screenshots; Treasure Detection Mechanics

The official Japanese PR Twitter account for the Dragon Quest franchise has shared even more screenshots of the upcoming action-adventure spinoff, Dragon Quest Treasures.

New gameplay information was also provided, revealing that Erik and Mia can detect the general vicinities of treasures with a unique ability akin to a compass. Additionally, a beneficial monster skill called Monster Vision will alert players of their proximity to treasure, demanding users to be on their A-game with contextual awareness. It requires players to figure out treasure locations based on monsters’ sight. Moreover, these found treasures can be appraised at one’s base, with some items being teased to reference other entries in the Dragon Quest franchise.

You can view the numerously unveiled screenshots of Dragon Quest Treasures below:

Dragon Quest Treasures follows Erik and Mia, both prominent characters from Dragon Quest XI, with Erik even being 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 Dragon Stones. Conveniently, Erik and Mia can communicate with the monsters here, allowing for integral cooperation regarding treasure hunting.

 Dragon Quest Treasures is releasing for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 9, 2022.
