Square Enix today announced that the new RPG treasure hunting adventure DRAGON QUEST TREASURES will launch worldwide for Nintendo Switch on December 9, 2022. A completely new spinoff from the DRAGON QUEST series, DRAGON QUEST TREASURES explores the childhood escapades of the siblings Erik and Mia, who first appeared in DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
Players will take control of Erik and Mia as they explore a treasure hunter’s paradise where boundless adventure awaits. 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. They will even provide assistance in battles against rival treasure hunters! Collecting treasure will increase the player’s vault value, allowing them to expand their home base and build up their brigade of friendly monsters.
