Dragon Quest XI

The latest issue of Weekly Jump has new information about Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time party characters Veronica and Senya, as well as the Homura Village first teased last Saturday.

Here are the details:


Veronica hates being treated like a child. She can equip two-handed staffs and whips as weapons. Despite her small size, she is a tomboy who won’t flinch in a fight no matter her opponent. She can unleash beyond-powerful attack spells that prove her use as the party’s attacker.

Spells she can use include:

  • “Kafrizzle” – A powerful spell where a pillar of overly-hot flames attack the enemy.
  • “Gilaglade” – Heat up and clear away the enemy with the earth-shaking flame that is this powerful attack spell.

Her weapon skills include:

  • “Berserk Magic Circle” – A special skill using the two-handed staff that strengthens spells.
  • “Extreme Dragon Strike” – A special skill using the whip that consecutively strikes the enemy.


Senya is a healer who can cure her allies. She can equip spears and sticks. She has a kind heart and gentle personality. In contrast to Veronica, her language is awfully polite. Her easygoing and gentle personality may even make Veronica impatient at times.

Spells she can use include:

  • “Kerplunk” – A spell that heals all party members at the expense of herself.
  • “Kaswooshle” – An attack spell, which Senya can also use.
  • “Holy Light” – No description provided.

Her weapon skills include:

  • “Flash Strike” – A special skill using the stick and spear.

Homura Village (Fire Village)

A village at the foot of Hinonogi Volcano characterized by Japanese-style buildings. It thrives in smithing and has a famous steam bath house. There is a shrine in the back of the village where the shrine maiden who governs over the village lives.

Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time will launch for PlayStation 4 and 3DS on July 29 in Japan. A Switch version is also planned, but has yet to be shown or dated.
