It's 27th May in Japan, which means the Dragon Quest series is celebrating its 36th anniversary! And to kick things off, Square Enix has dropped a brand new teaser for its previously announced spin-off, Dragon Quest Treasures.
Revealed last year for the series' 35th anniversary, Dragon Quest Treasures stars Dragon Quest XI's Erik and his sister Mia and is intended to be quite a bit different from the mainline series. This cute-little trailer doesn't give much more away about the game except give us a better look at Erik and Mia, along with two adorable flying creature companions. And in big bold gold writing, the trailer says we'll be going on "one tremendous treasure hunt!" So Erik will get to flex his thieving skills once again
Dragon Quest spin-offs vary from Minecraft-inspired RPG building games like Dragon Quest Builders to a tank-battling top-down action-adventure game in Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime. How that treasure hunt will look is anyone's game, really, and we're looking forward to finding out.
We currently don't know what platforms the game will be launching on, but given Dragon Quest's history with Nintendo, surely we'll be seeing this on Switch? Square Enix has promised us more info about the spin-off in June, and if it's heading the Switch's way, we'll be sure to let you all know.

It looks like a mobile game to me. I don't have high hopes for it, but we'll see.
I Elmer Fudded the heck out of that headline.
The BDSP of Dragon Quest it seems.
Guessing Mobile game and wouldn't be surprised if Japan only.
Dragon Quest 11 is the only game in the series I've ever played, but I absolutely adored it. Erik was one of my favorite characters, so a spinoff about him and his sister as kids is awesome. I wasn't sure if the game would be localized for the West, but since the trailer is in English, it seems inevitable! I'm looking forward to seeing more. With the 3DS eShop closing down, I'd love to see DQ 7 and 8 ported to Switch so I can finally try them.
DQ11 prequel incoming! Hopefully it's good.
Mobile game? No.
Dragon Quest? HELL NO.
DQ11 nearly broke my love for the JRPG genre, I'll never play any of these games ever again.
Dragon Quest 1+2 Pixel HD remasters, that's all I want. 4 if they are feeling ambitious!
@Mauzuri I never played 11, but wow! What happened?
Here's a question though: what happened to the western release of Keshi Keshi?
Very cool! I loved Dragon Quest XI, so I’ll be interested in this one
Please be on PS4 / PS5 with physical release...
Meh it's either mobile or just another NFT scheme.
Yea.. I remember being interested during the reveal, I do wonder how this one is gonna turn out.
I wanted another monster joker...
I quite like the Builders spinoff so I hope this is equally fun and well-done. And on Switch obviously.
Wow, I've rarely seen anyone react THAT negatively to DQ11, usually most people say it's pretty good to amazing. I'm not a big fan of dragon quest myself but I'm curious too what your experience was like.
Can't wait to see what the gameplay is like, looks very interesting.
Looking forward to this and the DQ3 remake.
It's funny cause even at it's "worst" this DQ game still looks better than anything out of pokemon, even the recent titles like Arceus and Swsh.
But I do expect the visuals to be bumped up a bit, this isn't Gamefreak after all, plus it doesn't seem anywhere close to releasing.
I'm all over anything new from the DQ series
I made an account just to say this.
No matter what it's on, even if it's mobile, no way am I not getting it
I'll find a way
I always find a way.
@BloodNinja DQXI was fantastic. I've seen this person say this nonsense before and they never back it up. It's a great game.
I'm actually playing Dragon Quest XI on PC right now and what a lovely game it is.
@FredBiletnikoff I see. I am yet to try it. Thanks for the info.
“For iOS and Android”
Why would the trailer be in English if it were Japan only?
I loved Rocket Slime. One of the few games I've thoroughly beaten. Would welcome something along those lines.
Please don't be a mobile game, please don't be a mobile game, please don't be a mobile game...
It will definitely be Mobile.
You see from pretty much anything that it's inspired from Fantasy Life!
Gameplay wise I hope it will be something à la Zelda pre BOTW, a 3d action adventure with puzzle elements, it would be cool and fit the theme perfectly tbh
