Square Enix has shared more information on their action-adventure title, Dragon Quest Treasures, detailing its premise, primary cast, gameplay facets, and more.
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. New characters, Porcus and Purrsula. are introduced too, acting as partners for Mia and Erik, respectively (Purrsula being Erik’s partner seems to be implied, not directly stated). Moreover, Mia and Erik can be freely controlled and swapped while also sharing the same level, so usage seems to be wholly dependent on characterization preferences.
New screenshots of the game were shared via its official website, viewable via our gallery below:
The official Japanese Dragon Quest PR Twitter account reiterates the aforementioned information drop, alongside providing news regarding the voice acting talent.
Thanks to Gematsu for translations of specific terminology and names.
Dragon Quest Treasures is releasing for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 9, 2022.
