In Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, players are able to tame some of the monsters they’ll meet in the wild. These friendly creatures will live in their own place known as Monster Meadows, another world connected to your own via a portal in The Haven, a town made up of rehabilitated monsters. To help people understand how this system works, Nintendo has released a new trailer showing off the Monster Meadows area and explaining how to make these formerly fierce creatures your friends.
After restoring enough islands and continents in Estard Island’s Shrine of Mysteries, you’ll eventually gain access to The Haven and Monster Meadows. Once this new region is available, your party will be able to get bags of monster munchies from Monster Meadow. Having these on hand could make it possible to recruit a monster after a fight. Making one of your characters a Monster Masher will increase the odds of an opponent joining. Combining those two elements with information from the Big Book of Beasts, which shows every encountered monster’s Ease of Taming, can make it easier to make almost any enemy into a friend.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will come to the Nintendo 3DS on September 16, 2016.
