Square Enix revealed new details about online features and connectivity in upcoming treasure-hunting RPG, Dragon Quest Treasures.
In Dragon Quest Treasures, players may send monsters to a friend’s base, search for other players’ treasure, and hide treasure from others online. These online features may be accessed by talking to AL4N in Dragon Quest Treasures.
More details are available below via Square Enix:
Connecting with others via the internet
Once Erik and Mia’s gang has grown sufficiently large, a mechanical diplomat known as AL4N will come and stay at their base. He grants access to the Gang Network, a hub for online features that players can use to interact with other gangs.
Once you’ve connected to the internet, you’ll be able to hide treasure in Draconia, search for loot hidden by others, send your monsters out to show off your best treasures to other gangs, and likewise receive their monsters as guests.
Let’s take a closer look:
AL4N is an old friend of the station master, Mr Euston, and an accomplished diplomat. He comes to the base after hearing about Erik and Mia’s achievements.
When the gang’s rank is high enough, AL4N will grant access to the Gang Network.
The Gang Network lets you check other players’ profiles, and is a hub for fun mini games, such as Treasure Hunts and Treasure Tours.
To access the online features, simply link a Nintendo Account to the Nintendo Switch™ user and speak to AL4N. A subscription to Nintendo Switch Online is not required.
Here are some of the games you can play:
Treasure hunting with friends
Hide your treasure anywhere in Draconia, or download hidden treasure data uploaded by other users… then let the hunt begin!
Hiding your treasure for other players
Treasure can be hidden in a location of your choosing on any of Draconia’s islands. You can save up to three hiding places as favorites.
Other players can download your hidden treasure data. The more downloads you get, the more valuable the treasure will become!
Searching for other players’ treasure
Your monsters will inform you when another player’s treasure is hidden nearby. Look out for a blue chest inside a speech bubble.
Successfully track down some hidden loot to receive a replica of it!
Replicas don’t add to the value of your treasure vault, but they can be sold for money. Rare replicas command a high price!
Sending your monsters to a friend’s base
You can send your monsters off to visit other players’ bases, where they’ll show off one of your treasures. Likewise, you can welcome monsters from other gangs to your base and give likes to the treasures they show you.
Monsters from gangs around the world can come to visit you! If you know a friend’s Gang ID and their secret password, you can invite their monsters to come to your base.
When a visiting monster shows you their treasure, it’s up to you to give it the likes it deserves before the timer runs out.
Liking treasure boosts its value
Your monsters can also visit your friends’ bases. If other players like the treasure your monsters show them, its value will go up!
Visiting monsters will take their treasure with them when they leave, but you’ll receive a replica of it as a memento!
Lastly, Dragon Quest Treasures launches December 9 for Nintendo Switch.
