Square Enix has announced a new Dragon Quest title called Dragon Quest Treasures which looks likely to be a Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 title. The JRPG stars Erik and Mia, who featured in the last mainline Dragon Quest game, Dragon Quest XI S for the Nintendo Switch system. The game focusses on younger versions of the two characters and focusses on “Erik and Mia’s childhood,” and “treasure hunting.” Platforms for Dragon Quest Treasures have yet to be announced, but the team is planning for a worldwide release.
“We’re working on a completely new spin-off of the Dragon Quest series called Dragon Quest Treasures. You may have seen us show of the designs for Erik and Mia as children before, and through various twists and turns, they have become the lead characters of Treasures. I can’t reveal too much about the game at the moment, but I can tell you some important key themes: “Erik and Mia’s childhood,” and “treasure hunting.”It’s an RPG, but nothing at all like a traditional one, and that’s just about all I can say right now.”
“The release date and the platforms it will be playable on are as yet unannounced, but we’re working closely with [Dragon Quest game designer Yuji] Horii to make a worldwide simultaneous release happen. We’ll bring you more information at a later date. That was the new spin-off of the Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest Treasures.”
