Dragon Quest XI

The latest issue of Weekly Jump teases the 3DS-exclusive StreetPass feature in Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time, as well as introduces eight new monsters.

While the latest issue of Weekly Jump gave us a look at the PlayStation 4-exclusive “Bowgun Adventure” and “Magic Slot” casino game features of Dragon Quest XI, V-Jump teases the game’s 3DS-exclusive StreetPass feature. StreetPass involves mysterious creatures known as “Incarnations of Time.” It seems that players can visit a village where the Yocchi tribe of these creatures live. There is also a screenshot showing a number of different colored Yocchi fighting with different weapons. As for what will happen by passing other players, what sorts of facilities exist in Yocchi Village, and the Yocchi’s actual purpose, we’ll hear more about that in the June 26 issue of Weekly Jump.

The eight new monsters are pictured in the second and third rows of the left page pictured above. They include:

  • Slot Machine – A man who wanted to win at the slots, turned into a slot monster.
  • Drum Goat – A chubby monster and master of the drum. It plays the drum and summons monsters.
  • Fairy Bat – A bat that takes advantage of its cute appearance to attack its enemies with charm.
  • Ghost Parasol – Attacks humans who pick it up mistaking it as an umbrella with its sharp claw.
  • Ebi Metal – A monster whose thick, hard shell protects it like metal, which an ordinary sword stands no chance against.
  • Drago Bishop – A leader of the dragon world, whose wealth of knowledge makes it a skilled teacher.
  • Megaton Keil – A monster who makes various poses to show off its muscles.
  • She-Golem – A golem made of coral, said to have been made as a destructive weapon long ago.

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.
