Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 demo launches March 9 in Japan

Try out the new "Ride System."

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3

The downloadable demo for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 will launch for 3DS via the Nintendo eShop in Japan on March 9 at 10:00 Japan time, Square Enix announced.

Players will be able to experience the Monster series’ notable “Monster Scout” system, as well as new elements like the “Ride System,” and monster and field object analysis using the new, all-purpose “Reactor” tool.

If you clear the demo, you’ll obtain a “present code” for use in the full game.

Finally, as previously announced, if you also have the Dragon Quest X: Boukensha no Odekake Chou Benri Tool for 3DS, the demo can be used to receive a “Reactor” tool in Dragon Quest X Online.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 is due out for 3DS in Japan on March 24.
