'Dragon Quest Treasures' Available For Pre-Order, Incentives, Gets Digital Deluxe Edition, Shows Gameplay - Trailer

A completely new spinoff from the Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest Treasures explores the childhood of the siblings Mia and Erik from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

Dragon Quest Treasures follows Erik and his sister Mia who live on a Viking longship, dreaming of someday exploring the world for grand treasures. One night they encounter a pair of otherworldly creatures, Porcus and Purrsula, and are led to a mysterious ruin, where they come across a pair of Dragon Daggers. Upon obtaining the magical daggers, the plucky duo is whisked away to the floating continent of Draconia. This legendary land is home to monsters and countless pieces of precious loot, including seven legendary Dragonstones that are highly sought after among serious treasure hunters.

Loot can be hidden in the most fiendishly inaccessible locations, so players must recruit a variety of well-meaning monsters and make use of their unique treasure-hunting abilities. These charming creatures will help players to race over open fields, scale cliffs with a single bound, and glide over gaping chasms.

As players start their journey as Erik and Mia, they’ll learn how to fight alongside a team of monster pals and utilize their unique abilities to find hidden treasures and reach otherwise inaccessible areas. The two will also need to protect their treasure from monsters and rival gangs until they can get it back to base to be appraised. Collecting treasure will increase the player’s vault value, allowing them to expand their home base and further build up their brigade of friendly monsters.

Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest Treasures is available for pre-orders both digitally and physically starting today at participating retailers.

A Digital Deluxe Edition was also announced alongside a new trailer for the game, showcasing the enchanting world of Dragon Quest Treasures and providing viewers with an in-depth look at gameplay mechanics.

Players who pre-order the Standard Edition from participating retailers will also receive a set of Chimaera Wings, Better Buddy Bullets and Fullheal Pellets. The Digital Deluxe Edition provides the full game download, along with the Standard Edition pre-order items, three monster allies, and batches of Bestest Buddy Bullets and Omniheal Bombs.

Dragon Quest Treasures will be available for Nintendo Switch on December 9, 2022.
