Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince (ドラゴンクエストモンスターズ3魔族の王子とエルフの旅 Doragon Kuesuto Monsutāzu 3 mazoku no ōji to erufu no tabi , lit: "Dragon Quest Monsters 3: "Journey of the Prince of the Demon Clan and the Elf") is the seventh game in the Dragon Quest Monsters series. It was released on December 1, 2023 worldwide for the Nintendo Switch.


The game is set in Nadiria, the underworld from Dragon Quest IV and V.

Psaro is cursed and is unable to harm anything with monster blood. Now, he must become a Monster Wrangler to create an army for battle.

The hunt for high-ranked monsters takes Psaro through the ever-changing seasons of Nadiria and its unique environments, with rivers of bubbling lava, mysterious ancient ruins, and soaring towers of cake. Along the way, Psaro meets the kind-hearted elf, Rose, who joins his adventure to seek out ever-stronger monsters.

The key to Psaro's success lies with synthesis: the ability to combine two monsters and create a stronger offspring. Each new creation brings Psaro one step closer to his goal of becoming the Master of Monsterkind.


Gameplay-wise, it follows the same basic setup as the 3DS Monsters games: players can freely explore the world's 3D environments and they can engage in turn-based fights with their teams of monsters. As in Joker 3, the battles are 4 vs 4.

As in previous Monsters games, the creatures have sizes, however in this game there are only two sizes: small (S) and large (L).

As usual in the series, players can acquire new monsters by either showing them a remarkable strength, or by combining two monsters.

New features & system alterations[edit]

  • Monster synthesis has been greatly simplified, abolishing the rank combinations, monster polarity, and "+" values seen in earlier titles. Instead of the "+" value directly boosting a freshly created monster's stats, the 6 monsters that make up that beast's lineage, 2 parents and 4 grandparents, influence how quickly a particular stat will grow before reach it's preset total. This is based on the families of the component monsters, with the slime family affecting HP, agility, and wisdom, the dragon family for HP, MP, and attack, the nature family for defence, agility, and wisdom, the beast family for MP, defence, and agility, the material family for attack, defence, and wisdom, the demon family for MP attack, and defence, the undead family for HP, MP, and agility, and finally the ??? family affects HP, attack, and wisdom. As such, if 4 of the 6 monsters that make up a newly synthesized monster's lineage belong to different families then the creation will enjoy accelerated growth in all stats before hitting the species' natural cap. If the levels of both parents are at 100 then the boosts detailed above will be as high as 20%.
  • Monster polarity had been abolished in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3, but this title is the first instance in which overseas players can experience the gameplay difference.
  • Monster combinations are now centered around the appearances of the components and any shared themes or games of origin they may have, allowing players to make more educated guesses as to what combinations will result in. As a result, several tried and true combinations no longer yield the same results as in past games and experimentation is greatly encouraged.
  • Monster scouting has been altered so that the wisdom stat of the monsters putting on a show of force is factored into the success rate, and not just the attack stat. This alteration was made so that even dedicated casters can impress wild monsters, with the higher of the two stats on a given monster being used for the calculation; if a monster has equal attack and wisdom then one is picked at random.
  • The player's chance to scout a monster of a particular Circle is also influenced by whether or not the boss of the area has been defeated.
  • A show of force no longer counts as a physical attack and is thus unaffected by Dazzle, Sandstorm, base dodge rates, etc. If members of the player's party are asleep, confused, or paralysed then they will not contribute to the show of force.
  • Giant-sized monsters that take up three and four party slots have been removed, with there now only being single-slot and two-slot size ranges. Furthermore all monsters can be bred to be of either size, with the main differences being access to more actions per turn, an extra three traits, and maximum HP and HP being increased by 25%. The other stats are multiplied by a factor dependent on which Tactical-class trait they possess, being:
  • Sparkling monsters have been added to the game. These glimmering creatures have a 5% chance of appearing when a synthesis is performed and are noted by a special mark that appears on their icon, and enjoy having the upper limit of one of their stats raised by 100 points. Which stat is affected is chosen at random and cannot be influenced by the player.
  • Frenzied states have been introduced, based on the pep system of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. These super-charged states have a random chance to activate each turn, which skyrockets when a fellow party member is in critical health. Becoming frenzied allows a monster to go further beyond their limits bay gaining an extra action per turn, all types of damage being powered up by 150%, and all damage received being cut in half. The effect lasts only a few turns and can be utilized by enemy monsters and bosses, but the resulting power surge is more than enough to turn the tide for the players on the back-heel.
  • Seasons appear, changing the landscapes of Terrestria and Nadira greatly. Locations that are inaccessible in one season can be reached in another, the variety of monsters changes, and different items can be found scattered through the lands in different times of year.
  • Modifications have been made to resistances so that the effects of "Crafty" accessories and "Ultra Crafty" traits will now override immunity. For example, Krystalinda has the Ultra Crafty Cracker trait that reduces a target's resistance to the Ice element by 50%; if she were to cast Kacrackle on a snowmangler, which is immune to Ice, the power of the spell would only be cut in half. If she were to be equipped with an accessory that grants her the Crafty Cracker trait, the effect of the accessory would stack with her natural traits and the damage of her Kacrackle would only be reduced by 40%. This means that by paying attention to a monster's traits and accessories, even metal slimes can be wiped out in a single shot.
  • The reverse is also true, with monsters that have natural immunity to an element or status ailment being able to take advantage of "Ward" accessories and "Ultra Ward" traits. For example, if the same snowmangler described above was granted the Ultra Crack Ward trait through one of several talents and the Crack Ward accessory trait, it would nullify the aforementioned Krystalinda's ability to override it's immunity to Ice and void the damage from her Kacrackle spell.


Producer Kento Yokota met with Yuji Horii during the early planning phase of the title, and initial discussions regarding the game's plot centered on having Terry and Milly be the protagonists as a way to bring the series back to it's roots for the 25th anniversary. There were concerns that this approach would be somewhat limiting in where the story could go, and that it would not feel original. Yokota reflected on the rich story of Dragon Quest IV and initially considered using Solo as the protagonist, but reconsidered upon realizing that this would fundamentally be following the same premise as Terry starring in the original game. Instead, Yokota suggested using Psaro as the protagonist on the basis of the character's lasting popularity with fans and the shock value of playing as a central antagonist from a mainline game. Horii approved of this bold direction and agreed that this would be the premise of the 25th anniversary title, wanting the explore the history of a younger Psaro.

Careful consideration was given to the story and tone of The Dark Prince as it was decided to have the side-story tie directly into the events of Dragon Quest IV, an unprecedented move within the series as the story of Terry's Wonderland took place several years prior to the events of Dragon Quest VI and featured no connecting characters aside from the young siblings. To this end scenario writer Jin Fujisawa was hired to write the game, who was a long-time contributor to the series and had personally written the additional sixth chapter of Dragon Quest IV first seen in the Sony PlayStation remake[1]. Fujisawa wrote the treatment and reviewed it with Horii, with particular care being given to how Solo and the other Chosen Ones would be presented within the game's narrative; Horii's concern was that players were not given the impression that the Chosen Ones were villainous even if they were opposed to Psaro.

Monster synthesis was also given a considerable amount of attention by Yokota and Horii, who viewed the system as the defining feature of the Monsters series [2]. To this end it was decided it was time to shake up the traditional combinations for new mixtures. Ditching the tried and true formulas fosters a sense of discovery in players by finding new ways to create their favorite monsters, many of which are fun references to that beast's debut title; for example, Hargon is created by combining Atlas, Belial, Pazuzu, and the Wrecktor instead of a wight king and metal king slime.

For the game's logo, it was decided to use black and pink as the main colours to reflect Psaro and Rose as the central characters[3]. Yokota was nervous to use this approach at first due to black never being used as one of the colours of the logo in any Dragon Quest title before, but Horii noted that the design left a strong impression which reflects the more serious nature of Psaro's story, as well as Rose's importance to him as his lover, and the concept art was quickly finalized.

  1. 横田:はい、まずはシナリオの根幹にあるピサロが主人公というところだけを伝えて、藤澤 (仁) さん ( 『DQVII』や『DQVII』のシナリオ制作に関わり、『DQIV』ディレクター、『DQX』初代ディレクターを務めた) に作っていただきました。プレイステーション版の 『DQIV』 で追加されたシナリオを藤澤さんが書いているんですよ。 だから 「『DQIV』 のシナリオのことは、僕が誰よりも覚えている」とおっしゃっていて。ドラゴンクエストモンスターズ3 魔族の王子とエルフの旅 WORLD&MONSTER DATABASE interview, ISBN:978-4-08-779813-5
  2. 横田:今回の開発にあたり、堀井さんとお話する中でやっぱり「DQM」シリーズで一番大事なのは配合だとおっしゃっていて。その配合がおもしろくなきゃダメだ、という気持ちを強く持って開発に挑みました。ドラゴンクエストモンスターズ3 魔族の王子とエルフの旅 WORLD&MONSTER DATABASE interview, ISBN:978-4-08-779813-5
  3. 横田: これまでとは違うイメージにしたいなということでピサロとロザリーのイメージカラーから、黒とピンクがかった赤に しています。これまで「ドラゴンクエスト」の文字部分が黒というのはなかったので、 堀井さんになにか指摘されるかなって思っていたんですが、 黒のロゴデザインのパターンを見て 「これがよくない?」とおっしゃっていただいて! ドラゴンクエストモンスターズ3 魔族の王子とエルフの旅 WORLD&MONSTER DATABASE interview, ISBN:978-4-08-779813-5
