You begin your adventure traveling the countryside with your father, Papas. Once the story gets underway you'll span three generations and learn the fate of your family and put a stop the monsters terrorizing the land. You'll charm and enlist the help of monsters, choose who you want to marry, fly on a magic carpet, and even inherit a kingdom during the most epic Dragon Quest to date.

Q: Who do I marry, Bianca or Flora?
A: It really depends on what type of characters you want in your party. Bianca is a better fighter but Flora is a better magic user. So it's up to you if you'd rather have a fighter or a magician... or if you want your kids to have yellow or purple hair.

Q: Why can't I use the Celestial Sword?
A: Because only the Legendary Hero can use the Celestial Sword and you're not the Legendary Hero this time around.

Q: How do I get monsters to join my party?
A: Monsters will sometimes join your party after you defeat them. It may take a few battles to convince some of the tougher monsters to join you. You can also capture two of the same monster but it's much more difficult.
