How long is Dragon Quest Monsters The Dark Prince?

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince can be compared to games like Pokémon and Persona 5 in terms of content, side activities, and length. If we were to estimate the length of a regular playthrough, you can expect to invest at least 30 hours to complete the main quest line.

This playtime is expected if you're rushing through the game's story. However, if you want to dive deeper into synthesizing, collecting all mini medals, or even capturing all monsters, it could take at least another 30-50 hours to complete fully, totaling up to almost 80 hours of playtime.

These numbers are not yet official and are just estimated based on similar-styled games. Players will have varying playstyles as well, so it can even take longer than the estimated playtime for a completionist run.

Is Dragon Quest Monsters The Dark Prince worth it?

If you're into standard capture-and-battle games, then I highly recommend you check out Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince. It stands on its own, even with borrowed concepts and mechanics from more popular franchises like Pokémon, Digimon, and Persona.

One of the best features is the synthesizing mechanic, which allows you to combine different breeds of monsters into one powerful behemoth. Experimenting with the synthesize mechanic is a fun and unique way to enjoy min-maxing your monsters while spending hours finding the best party to battle against other players.
