Dragon Quest Characters: Torneko's Great Adventure 3: Mystery Dungeon (Japanese: ドラゴンクエストキャラクターズ トルネコの大冒険3 不思議のダンジョン) is a game developed by Chunsoft and Matrix Software and published by Enix on PlayStation 2 in 2002. It is part of the third and last set of the Torneko's Great Adventure series in the Dragon Quest Mystery Dungeon games.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The main character of the game is Torneko, originally localized as Taloon in North America, a merchant and playable character from Dragon Quest IV.[1] Torneko can explore fully 3D dungeons and have members join his party.[2] The player moves through randomly generated dungeons and uses turn-based action combat. The player can bring along creatures and henchmen to fight with them as they battle monsters in the dungeons. In the Game Boy Advance version, an addition mode is available in which the player can fight through four advanced dungeons independently of the game's story.[3]

Some of the locations are not randomly generated. The game includes over 170 types of monsters, and a larger number of items and spells to use in combat than previous Torneko games.[4]

Plot[edit | edit source]

The plot for Torneko no Daibōken 3 happens seven years after the events of Torneko's Great Adventure: Mystery Dungeon and six and a half year after Torneko: The Last Hope. In the game, Torneko and his wife Nene and son Poporo journey to a distant island for a vacation for celebrating Poporo's twelfth anniversary. During that time, an unexpected trouble occurred and the Torneko family arrived at a strange island. While there, mysterious forces attack and Torneko must journey into dungeons to fight them off.[4][5]

Reception[edit | edit source]

The PlayStation 2 version of the game has sold over 513,000 copies as of November 2008.[6] The PlayStation 2 version was given a high 35 out of 40 by Famitsu magazine.[7][8] The Game Boy Advance version was given a lower 32 out of 40.[9]
