Dragon Quest Treasures Details Maps and Dungeons
Square Enix released its latest screenshots and details for Dragon Quest Treasures. The latest update covers treasure maps and dungeons.
As players progress through the game, they will find treasure map items, which lead to special treasure dungeons. These maps can be found as drops from enemy monsters, as well as part of the loot found by monster parties that has been sent out on missions. Finding a treasure map leads to a quest to find the indicated treasure dungeon entrance.
Once players enter the portal, they are transported to the dungeon. Treasure dungeons feature a series of levels containing different enemies, including some rare enemies. Defeating all the enemies lets players progress to the next level. Players can also find mysterious pillars, which grant a party-wide effect when touched. The final level of each dungoen includes more powerful monsters. As part of the story, Erik and Mia will come across a special treasure map that leads to a final encounter with Hornbull, Sentinel of the Sands.
Dragon Quest Treasures was originally teased as a new Dragon Quest Monsters game in 2018. The game follows siblings Erik and Mia — younger versions of the characters from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age — who seek to obtain the seven Dragonstones. The game will release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on December 9, 2022.
