Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 has been covered in this week’s issue of Jump, and some new details are provided.

First, Master’s Road is a new mini-game that uses the ride system. There are entrances to Master’s Road in various places in-game, if you use a certain item named Heaven Guidance Stone. The objective in Master’s Road is to reach the goal while dealing with obstacles, and something not specified yet awaits at the goal.

Jump also touches on dimensional rifts, which are gates to a parallel world. These rifts can’t be seen with naked eye, but can be searched and detected with the Reactor. When you go through them, you’ll enter a parallel world never seen before, which has not only strong monsters, but also Masters who can challenge you to a battle which will give you rewards on victory.

Since it’s unknown if Dragon Quest XI will be on Nintendo platforms or not, we’re pretty much just rounding up everything here. You can watch the reveal of the game at 4:00 AM ET / 1:00 AM ET tomorrow on YouTube.


Update (7/24): Bumped to the top. No real surprise here, but we have further proof that the announcement will be Dragon Quest XI. Square Enix’s press invite says the company will announce “the first main Dragon Quest title in three years”. There will also be details about other Dragon Quest titles, so if nothing else, hopefully we’ll hear more about Dragon Quest VIII and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3.


This week’s issue of Jump teases the reveal of a new Dragon Quest game. Square Enix will be holding a presentation on July 28, and the company is expected to announce a new title in the series. The event will be live streamed online.

Jump says that its August 3 issue will have information about “that big title”. Based on what we know thus far, many people believe that an announcement about Dragon Quest XI is incoming.

Dragon Quest IX and Dragon Quest X were both on Nintendo platforms. If we will be hearing about Dragon Quest XI soon, it will be interesting to see if this one ends up on a Nintendo system as well.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 was revealed for 3DS in the latest issue of Jump. A higher-quality scan is attached above, and we also have a comment from series creator Yuji Horii.

Here’s what he shared with the magazine:

“For the latest Monsters, it’s Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, a completely new entry in the series after a while. For the current announcement, I only have an illustration of the hero and logo, as well as a mysterious creature (laughs), but in addition to new systems, new monsters, and new communications, we’re diligently developing the game with all sorts of stuff.”

Akira Toriyama designed the protagonist for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3. Jump also shows Nochora, a mysterious creature that will appear in various scenes.

According to the latest issue of Jump, Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS will feature an additional dungeon. Jahagaros, a new boss monster, is located here. You can view a scan from the magazine above that provides a look at the new box art illustrated by Akira Toriyama.

Jump is also teasing the reveal of a “big title” for its next issue due out next week. Since it’s on the Dragon Quest VIII page, it should be something related to Dragon Quest. It’s unclear if the game in question is for Nintendo platforms.
