During the Dragon Quest 35th Anniversary Special live stream, Square Enix revealed the RPG Dragon Quest Treasures, which will include Erik and Mia from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age as the main characters.
Although no specific release date has been specified, a simultaneous worldwide release is expected.
What is Dragon Quest Treasures?
The game will take place during the childhood of Erik and Mia's siblings, and it will revolve around the activity of treasure hunting. During the live stream, the game's development team stated that the game will still be an RPG, but that it will be “non-traditional.”
Is there a trailer?
There is! Check it out:
Will Previous Dragon Quest Characters Make An Appearance in Dragon Quest Treasures?
In Dragon Quest 11, you'll be able to visit the realms of previous Dragon Quest games and meet up with familiar characters.
Player characters from Dragon Quest 4 and Dragon Quest 8's Chateau Felix returned in Tickington and the Altar of Ages as well as new ones from every prior mainline chapter.
A similar scenario might be used to transport Mia and Erik throughout DQ universes in the new game, called Treasures.
There's a good chance that additional Dragon Quest characters will pop up, even if the setting is completely original.
That Torneko appears as a youngster in Dragon Quest: Shnen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon, a spin-off that never reached the West and featured Yangus from Dragon Quest VIII as a child, is an example of this.
Numerous characters, such as those from the Dragon Quest Heroes series, could make an appearance. Erik and Mia's departure from Erdrea opens up a whole new universe of possibilities.
There's a good chance that characters and locales from previous Dragon Quest games will make an appearance in Treasures.
Message From Taichi Inuzuka
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.
