A big update was just made to the official Japanese Dragon Quest XI website which details a lot of new information about the game including towns, fields, dungeons and more. Let’s take a closer look at this new information.
Towns are where intimate information and convenient facilities come together. Talk to the people of these towns, collect information, purchase items and equipment, ready yourself for your next adventure and set your sights on your next destination.
Convenient facilities are located in towns to help you along your adventure.
Dragon Quest XI has vast environments from grasslands to snowy fields spread out across the world, all full of a variety of monsters. You may notice changes based on time of day and even the weather, so get out there and search every corner of these areas.
There exist various types of these sparkling objects in the world. You can crush rocks to get ore, or shake a tree to get its fruit.
When out on the field you can ride on a horse. By traveling on horseback, you can get to your destination way faster than running! On the PS4 version, you can blow the enemy away by dashing through them.
Let’s take a look at some of the new monsters you can expect to find out in the wild.
Little Lantern (Lantern Kozou)
A monster which was once a lantern left abandoned by its owner. It vows to set aflame those who threw it away.
A monster characterized by the large fluff from behind its mask. It pierces its enemies with holes using a large needle it carries.
Dangerous grounds where monsters and treasures can be found. There are valuable treasures within these dungeons, some which are safe guarded behind powerful bosses. Make sure to prepare well before setting out to explore!
From time to time you can find remnants of bonfires out in the fields where you’ll be able to stop and make camp. While camping, you can save your game as well as rest and recover your strength. Camping serves as a great resting point while out on your long adventures.
A new character, Silvia, was also introduced briefly. All we know about her so far, is that she is a Performer.
