Dragon Quest Treasures takes a look at treasure maps and dungeons

In the latest update ahead of the swifly-approaching Dragon Quest Treasures release date, we get a look at treasure maps and treasure dungeons that protagonist siblings Erik and Mia will find. Alongside their party of monster friends, they’ll be able to use Teleportals found while exploring the floating islands of Draconia after acquiring a map as a rare enemy drop.

Once through said Teleportal, you’ll battle through connected rooms, eventually make your way to a boss. Defeat the boss and you’ll be rewarded with special treasures, medals and gold.

Check out the details below.

Dragon Quest Treasures launches on Nintendo Switch this December 9. Pre-order gifts include in-game items including 5x Chimaera Wings, 15x Better Buddy Bullets, and 15x Fullheal Pellets.

We’ve previously told you about how sibling heroes Erik and Mia can discover amazing loot in DRAGON QUEST TREASURES, the ins and outs of forming a gang, how battles work and more.

Now, with less than a month to go until the release of DRAGON QUEST TREASURES, we’d like to tell you about the treasure maps you’ll pick up on your adventures… and the treasure dungeons they’ll lead you to.

You enter dungeons through Teleportals. If you come across one while out exploring, summon up your courage and head on in!

Defeat the super-tough monsters that reside on a dungeon’s final level and you’ll earn treasure, medals and gold!

The treasures you’ll find and the monsters you’ll encounter are different every time you enter a treasure dungeon – and there are special rewards if you make it out in one piece!

That’s a brief summary – now let’s take a closer look:

Treasure Maps

In DRAGON QUEST TREASURES, you’ll come across special items known as treasure maps. These will lead you to treasure dungeons where you can earn rewards, including treasure and medals.

So how do you get these valuable maps? Enemy monsters will occasionally drop them when defeated!

Monster parties you’ve sent out on missions can also find treasure maps for you.

When you find a treasure map, a special quest will begin! You can check the menu to see which island the dungeon is on.

If you search the island, you’ll find the entrance to the treasure dungeon – a swirling teleportal!

Treasure Dungeons

Step through the teleportal and you’ll find yourself in a dungeon full of valuable treasure… and also danger.

Treasure dungeons are formed of a series of separate rooms that you have to work through in sequence. The monsters you meet and the treasures you find there change with every visit to a dungeon.

Defeat the enemies that stand in your way and grab your reward!

Defeat all the enemies in a room and the portal to the next one will appear. Some rooms contain mysterious stone pillars. Touching these pillars will affect your entire party in a number of ways. Powerful monsters await on the final level of each dungeon. Cooperate with your party to take them down!

You might also come across some rather rare monsters inside the dungeon, including ones with metallic bodies and others that sparkle extravagantly!

Get the better of a treasure dungeon and you’ll earn treasures, medals and gold. There are also rare medals available for those who can clear dungeons quickly!
