DQM 2: Iru & Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key Data Project

Recommended Posts

Hello, hello!

Once again, I'm playing through a Japanese DQ game and building a database of information about it.  This time, I'm tackling Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru & Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key on the 3DS.  So far, the data I'm including are a comprehensive Monster List (including common and rare drops, scouting locations, breeding recipes, from which eggs they hatch, whether it must be traded, or WiFi gifts), Area-based monster lists, Egg hatching lists, Dream Egg hatching lists, the monsters owned by Other Countries' Masters, Monster Arena battle list, Mini Medal rewards, Costumes, and Scout Q challenges.

This process is, of course, immense, as DQM2 on 3DS has 802 monsters in it; after about two weeks, I'm at 28.4% of that total (219 monsters).  Also...my Japanese is rudimentary, at best.  But, I managed to 100% DQ VII 3DS, DQ VIII 3DS, and DQ XI 3DS, so...I have faith I can complete this undertaking.
 

At any rate, know that it's coming, and will hopefully be finished before DQ Builders 2 hits the shelves.

Nice. I still have hope in the fan translation being done on the next couple years. Hope so, I loved these games 15 years ago!

Poor Woodus has had the unenviable task of looking at my databases, before, and putting them into the website.

I'd like to see something similar to the PS1 DQM 1+2 package we got in 2002 for the Switch.  The DQM Joker games were okay, but...I never really cared about or for the storylines.  After DQM2, I'll probably tackle DQM Joker 3 Professional, so...

You're still doing the hard work, I just "massage" the data into the Den's database ;)

I have the game and a pretty thoroughly completed save file; let me know if you need anything. I can also read Japanese fairly well. For DQM2, I've always used http://game-cap.com/dqm2/ as reference. It's all in Japanese, but it's thorough for most things besides item drops.

Nice. Good reference!  Wish they had pictures of the monsters, but lots of good info there.

I've got six different Japanese wikis up, right now, along with 22 Dragon's Den Monster List tabs open (at least one for each main-series game to make sure I get the name translations right), five Dragon's Den item pages up to make sure I get the right item name translations.

I'll admit, I am the ABSOLUTE worst at capturing images for the monsters (primarily because I use Excel, and incorporating photos in that program on a Mac is like unanesthetized urethral surgery).  But, I'm willing to work with you guys on that.  🙂

Which leads me to the next idea: we need a standalone Item Index, with the following information: 1.) Japanese name; 2.) English name; 3.) Image; 4.) Game appearance; 5.) Purchase price; 6.) Sale price; 7.) Harvest points; 8.) Drop data; 9.) Use; 10.) Alchemy recipes.

That'll be my next contribution, perhaps.  🙂

So..  I was wondering if I could be of any assistance to you, mjhopkins81.

Mainly concerning alternate names for monsters which have not yet received official translations (and those listed on the database, like baboon beast and dark robot slime, I don't think have ever been used in official English-language media).

I did something similar to that list once, but stalled numerous times and eventually had to cease when I heard just now that you were working on it.
