Square Enix has released a brand new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Dragon Quest Monsters : The Dark Prince.
From the gameplay trailer, we were able to see a glimpse of the overall story of the game, which sees our main character Psaro returning to Nadiria, where he was once banished.
Throughout his journey, Psaro will encounter allies and foes who will stand in his way, as the fate of Nadiria and all the monsters that live there will be decided.
The gameplay trailer also shows off different settings, from a grassy plain to a candy filled castle interior.
The trailer also shows the game’s overall battle system featuring various monsters from the iconic Dragon Quest series, as well as the Synthesis mechanic where players can combine and turn them into powerful allies.
Psaro is cursed and is unable to harm anything with monster blood. Now, he must become a Monster Wrangler to create an army for battle.
The hunt for high-ranked monsters takes Psaro through the ever-changing seasons of Nadiria and its unique environments, with rivers of bubbling lava, mysterious ancient ruins, and soaring towers of cake. Along the way, Psaro meets the kind-hearted elf, Rose, who joins his adventure to seek out ever-stronger monsters.
The key to Psaro’s success lies with synthesis: the ability to combine two monsters and create a stronger offspring. Each new creation brings Psaro one step closer to his goal of becoming the Master of Monsterkind.
Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince is set to release on 1st December 2023 on the Nintendo Switch.
