The Dragon Quest Monsters franchise has been dormant for several years now, but that'll change (relatively) soon. Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince is the latest installment in the monster-wrangling spin-off, and it's launching on December 1, 2023.

The announcement trailer for Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince was shown during the June 2023 Nintendo Direct and included monster fusing, diverse landscapes, and the mysterious appearance of the protagonist from Dragon Quest 4: Chapters of the Chosen.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince was just one of the new video games revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct, including a Super Mario RPG remake and a Detective Pikachu sequel.
