▍About Dragon Quest Treasures
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 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 further build up their brigade of friendly monsters.
▍What is Dragon Quest?
Dragon Quest is the original JRPG series by Square Enix, the series began on exactly May 27, 1986, exactly 36 years ago. The series is beloved by JRPG fans globally and is a massive phenomenon in Japan with millions of adoring fans.
The series sparked an urban myth that the game was only to be released on Saturdays rather than the norm of releasing it on Thursdays because it was too addicting! Though this was actually an internal decision made by Square to help curb kids skipping school to buy the game!
