Dragon Quest Treasures Reveals Online Features & Minigames, No Switch Online Subscription Required; New Screenshots

Square Enix has shared new gameplay details regarding their upcoming action-adventure Dragon Quest series spinoff, Dragon Quest Treasures.

Online features have been elucidated, letting players interact with others worldwide. Once Erik’s and Mia’s gang grows considerably, a diplomatic robot and old friend of Mr. Euston named AL4N will arrive and open up access to the Gang Network.

If connected to the internet, players can utilize this Network to hide treasure in Draconia, search for treasure hidden by other players, send monsters to other gangs to show off acquired treasure, and receive others’ monsters as guests.

Player profiles and minigames, such as Treasure Hunts and Treasure Tours, can also be accessed via AL4N. It’s worth noting that a Nintendo Switch Online subscription is not required to use any of these online services.

The Treasure Hunting minigame is self-explanatory, with players able to hide their treasure up to a maximum of three locations, letting everyone earn replicas of each other’s loot once found. Finding these items will not increase the value of one’s treasure vault, but they can be sold for incredibly high prices. Further, the more one’s treasure data is downloaded by other players, the more valuable that treasure will become.

When another player’s monster visits your base, you can give likes to the treasure it holds, heightening its value. Then, when the monster leaves, they’ll take that same treasure with them, but a replica will be left in their stead, allowing for raw financial gains. If you know a friend’s Gang ID and their secret password, you can invite their monsters to arrive at your base, as well.

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

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.
