Treasure Maps Show the Way to Treasure Dungeons

With less than a month to go until the release of Dragon Quest Treasures, we'd like to tell you about the treasure maps you'll pick up on your adventures and the treasure dungeons they'll lead you to. The treasures you'll find and the monsters you'll encounter are different every time you enter a treasure dungeon — and there are special rewards if you make it out in one piece!

If you come across a teleportal while out exploring, summon up your courage and head on in!
Defeat the super-tough monsters that reside on a dungeon's final level and you'll earn treasure, medals and gold!
You might well come across some rather rare monsters, including ones with metallic bodies and others that sparkle extravagantly!

X Marks the Spot

In Dragon Quest Treasures, you'll come across special items known as treasure maps. These will lead you to treasure dungeons where you can earn rewards, including treasure and medals. Simply head to the island indicated by the map and start searching for the entrance to the dungeon!

Enemy monsters will occasionally drop treasure maps when defeated!
Monster parties you've sent out on missions can also find treasure maps for you.
