Not much is currently known about the stage. It takes place on a large, gray platform, presumed to be initially grounded to a larger platform before it is lifted off, that flies past the Yggdrasil. Slimes, Spirits of Lost Time, and Cetacea cameo in the stage as well, with Slimes and Spirits of Lost Time appearing on-stage and Cetacea flying in the background.
Yggdrasil, the world tree of Norse legend, is a recurring location in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest II. It is a giant, mythical tree that can only be found in isolated and dangerous locations, in order to prevent the general populace from approaching it. Two of the most potent healing items in the series, the Yggdrasil Leaf and Yggdrasil dew, contain the essence of the tree. It plays important roles in both Dragon Quest IV and Dragon Quest IX, where it appears as a late-game location in the former, and is part of the plot in the latter. While the location has appeared in multiple Dragon Quest titles, Yggdrasil's design and the Altar itself seem to both be derived from Dragon Quest XI.
