Square Enix has released a new set of details and screenshots for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 introducing the game’s color customization features, new monsters, and some of its important characters.
Get the information below.
■ Customize Your Hero
In Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3, it’s possible to change the appearance of the protagonist. ‘Changing your appearance’ is a special skill you’ll learn on your adventure, allowing you to change your look from what you decided at the beginning of the story. Consider your own color coordination and become a “Fashion Master.”
You can change the color of your hair, scarf, pants, gloves, and boots. You can choose from 12 colors for each section. These colors are also reflected in story scenes, as well as in the menu screen character artwork.
■ Customize Your Monsters
Sure you can change the appearance of the protagonist, but you can also change the appearance of your monsters through a new “paint synthesis” element. This uses the game’s synthesis system to change the color of monsters. Through this, you can change the color of a monster’s body and its clothing without changing its stats and skills.
Monsters known as “Color Fondue” are the key to paint synthesis. Color Fondue monster White will tell you about his brothers who were captured by mysterious monsters.
As you come across the six brothers on your journey, you’ll be able to perform paint synthesis. Your monster’s color will vary based on the Color Fondue you synthesize it with.
■ New Monsters
While there have been many monsters introduced so far, today comes the reveal of completely original new monsters.
A Healslime king!
A monster able to transform into a motorcycle!
■ New Characters
Through encounters with various characters, the hero who lost his memory will learn the truth about himself and about Break World.
King of the Nochora race. It seems he had once had a human companion, and so he provides the hero with support through various means.
Caring Old Woman
A caring old woman with a bad mouth. She seems to have been an acquaintance of the hero before he lost his memory, and has great expectations of his power.
A mysterious girl who guides the hero and leads him on an adventure. She is waiting for the hero to become familiar with the world and significantly grow, but…
A self-described human “Hunter” and monster master dressed in black clothing. He is accompanied by a monster that has awakened a violent power, and stands before the protagonist.
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 is due out for 3DS in Japan on March 24.
