Dragon Quest Treasures, the latest Dragon Quest spin-off title from Square-Enix, is due for launch on Switch on December 9th. As reported by Gematsu, the Japanese website for the game has been updated with new information on the game's story, world, and characters, giving us a fresh glimpse into what to expect.

Here's the full rundown:


Erik and Mia, best friends and siblings who live on a Viking longship, are one day whisked away into another world by a pair of mysterious spirits.
The world, called “Draconia,” is a legendary land where the Seven Dragon Stones and many treasures lie in wait.
In a realm full of monsters, the siblings embark on the treasure-hunting adventure they have always dreamed of!


Draconia, where the game is set, is made up of islands with various climates, each inhabited by a wide variety of monsters.
Erik and Mia, who gained the ability to communicate with the monsters of this world through the power of the “Dragon’s Dagger,” will befriend the monsters that inhabit this land and grow together while collecting the treasures waiting to be found here!


Erik (Voiced by Motoko Kumai): An inquisitive, energetic, and cool boy who lives on a Viking longship with his younger sister Mia. He dreams of finding great treasure and making a fortune.

Purrsula (Voiced by Satomi Arai): A mysterious cat-looking spirit who Erik and Mia rescue. She is partnered with Erik.

Mia (Voiced by Inori Minase): A cute, competitive girl who lives on a Viking longship with her older brother Erik. She loves treasure-hunting adventures and hopes to someday find real treasure.

Porcus (Voiced by Yasuhiro Takato): A pig-looking spirit who Erik and Mia rescue alongside Purrsula. He takes a liking to Mia and becomes her partner.

The website also confirms that you'll be able to play as either Erik or Mia on your adventures, both of which originally appeared in Dragon Quest XI.
