Square Enix released a new teaser trailer for Dragon Quest Treasures. Released as part of the series’ 36th anniversary, the trailer showcases a few new characters, locations, and story details. Additionally, more information about the game will release sometime in June 2022.
Dragon Quest Treasures is a spin-off title featuring a younger Erik and his little sister Mia, both of whom appeared in Dragon Quest XI. Much like Torneko: The Last Hope, it is a spin-off story where the two characters search for a lost treasure. The game first appeared exactly one year ago, during the Dragon Quest 35th-anniversary announcements.
Notably, the trailer appears both in English and Japanese. This means that fans will get to hear what Erik and Mia sound with English voices. It also likely indicates a western release in the future. Furthermore, the trailer also reveals that the game’s official Japanese title will roughly translate to Dragon Quest Treasures: Blue Eyes and the Firmament’s Compass. While specific story details are still scarce, the trailer does show some sort of flying steam train.
As part of the series’ anniversary celebration, Square Enix also released Dragon Quest Builders for iOS and Android devices. Series creator Yuji Horii also thanked fans for their support in a video message and stated that the developers were “working hard” on the series’ next mainline title, Dragon Quest XII.
Dragon Quest Treasures is in development. There is no confirmed release date or platform. More information about the game will appear sometime in June 2022.
