The world returned to peace but the stories of the man and woman were forgotten...

Much time has passed since...

And the Demon King's hand prepares to rule once again...



Dragon Quest Tact is an RPG that combines elements of both strategy and action to create an action, strategy RPG experience. It is a 3D gacha game designed for mobile devices that involves a main story as well as various scheduled events.

The protagonist can capture monsters by defeating them with their own monster team after a certain point in the game. Monsters in the monster team can be controlled by the player and made to attack enemy monsters on a top-down, tile-based field. Each monster has various skills that can be unleashed on the field against enemies. After Chapter 2, Episode 2 in the main story of the game, Auto-Mode can be used to automate the process of defeating enemy monsters.

Materials can be gathered through a range of methods and are used to upgrade the ranks & statistics of owned monsters. Their skills can also be enhanced through the use of magic books. Collecting monsters of the same species leads to them evolving and their skills to grow even further.


Each monster has a basic set of information that pertains to their rarity ranking, species family and combatant type.
