Dragon Quest Treasures (ドラグンクエストトレジャーズ ―蒼き瞳と大空の羅針盤―, Doragon Kuesuto Torejāzu: Aoki Hitomi to Ōzora no Rashinban, "Dragon Quest Treasures: The Sapphire Eye and the Compass of the Open Skies") is an upcoming Dragon Quest spin-off.
First teased as a new Dragon Quest Monsters title, Dragon Quest Treasures was officially announced during the Dragon Quest 35th anniversary livestream on May 27, 2021. It is produced by Taichi Inuzuka, producer of all Dragon Quest Monsters games since Joker. On June 28, 2022 it was announced that the game will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 9 of the same year.
The game stars Dragon Quest XI characters Erik and Mia as children, who go on a treasure-hunting adventure. Described as a role-playing game in marketing materials, Treasures's gameplay borrows from action games such as the 3D Super Mario titles.. The player must find loot scattered across the game's locations and return to the base in order to increase the vault's value and expand the base. A variety of well-meaning monsters can be recruited -three can be with the player at a time-. These friendly monsters can help the little heroes traverse the fields, glide, or scale, among other things.
