Towns are places where welcome information and convenient facilities gather.
Many people live in towns, and there are shops and convenient facilities. Listen to the people in town to gather information, buy equipment and items to ready yourself for your journey, and set off to your destination.
• Lantern Kozou: Abandoned lanterns who over time became monsters. They seem to think that they will someday scorch the humans who threw them away.
• Mokokki: A monster characterized by the fluff that protrudes from beneath its mask. It carries a huge needle that can fill anything with holes.
Fields span various environments, including meadows and snow lands, and feature a great variety of monsters. You may also find differences based on the time and weather, so be sure to explore every nook and corner.
Dungeons are dangerous places where many monsters live and valuable treasures lie dormant. Brutal boss monsters also lurk inside. Be sure to fully prepare yourself before challenging these areas.
In the field, you can sometimes find the remains of bonfires, which are where the protagonist and company can set up camp. At camp, players can write in their adventure log, and rest and recover HP. It is a valuable resting point on long journeys.
• Silvia: “It is my mission to make the people of the world smile!”
Dragon Quest XI is due out for PlayStation 4 and 3DS in Japan in 2017. A Switch version is also in development.
