The setting of Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 is “Break World.” This world features a great number of fields, ranging from areas covered in ice or engulfed in lava to green fields and futuristic towns.

In town and on the field, a mini-map is displayed on the lower screen indicating where your next destination.

■ Dig Up the Secrets Hidden in the Field

A number of mysteries are hidden in the fields of Break World. Here is where the protagonist’s Reactor device and ability to ride monsters comes into play.

In addition to monster data analysis, the Reactor device worn by the protagonist can be used in a variety of situations. The all-purpose tool can be used to uncover hidden treasure chest locations, secret paths normally not seeable, and the like.

When you’re exploring the field, the Reactor will react when it detects something.

You can then startup your Reactor and search the surrounding area.

Riding Monsters

Players can ride monsters on land, sea, and in the air. By riding monsters and searching every corner of the field, you can come across new discoveries.

By riding around on a Saber, for example, you can jump higher and therefore reach higher locations than normally possible.

Monster riding will evolve as you progress through the story. For example, you’ll be able to jump in the air multiple times in a row. In the following screenshot, the icons at the bottom of the screen represent the amount of times the player can jump.
