Square Enix’s Dragon Quest Treasures has received new details focusing on monster recruitment and Fortes. After outlining treasure hunting, Fortune Finder, and so on, Erik and Mia are ready to go. However, they’ll need to recruit some monsters to make things easier.

The monsters are easy enough to scout. Defeat them in combat, and they’ll offer to join you (most times for a price). At your base, you can check out all the monsters scouted and their different attributes, traits, abilities and whatnot. They have different ratings – from Bronze and Silver to Gold and Rainbow (the rarest).

While some monsters have the same resistances and treasure capacity across a species, each species is unique in its own way. Some may carry more treasure or be suited better to a specific area. Become famous enough, and certain monsters may join you willingly. These include Oozabella, a pink Slime that becomes friends with Mia.

Dragon Quest Treasures sports some familiar monsters but there are also plenty of new additions. The Marble Slime resides in the desert and builds up ingested sand within its body. The Fiery Dragling is found in caves with lava and emits fire. The Stormy Sabrecat signals the coming of a fur and can use electricity.

Finally, there are special abilities that monsters possess called Fortes. These include Launch for sending either sibling into the air to reach out-of-the-way platforms; Glide for floating down from high places or riding air currents from lower areas; Sprint for quicker movement (with speed and stamina varying between each monster); and much more.

Dragon Quest Treasures releases on December 9th for Nintendo Switch worldwide. Stay tuned for more details en route to release.
