Nintendo have announced the UK and European release dat for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2.
If you played the original, you’ll know that you’re in for a treat when the game releases on October 7th for Nintendo DS.
If you don’t know what the series is about, imagine a really awesome pokemon spin-off set in the Dragon Quest universe. I reckon it’s better than the Pokemon series, but I’m sure very few would be inclined to agree with me.
The blurb reads “After the Albatross airship crash lands on a faraway island, you must capture and train the wild monsters you hunt down – building a team to help you battle other monster scouts in the annual race to become the world’s greatest monster scout.”
It adds: “Rescue your fellow airship passengers and crew members who’ve gone missing and solve mysteries on the island to escape for good. With over 250 monsters on the island, including final and secret bosses from previous titles in the series, there is plenty to get your monster teeth into. You can also synthesise new monsters – allowing you to create and breed even more powerful monsters with exactly the right skill points for your needs.”
Online monster battles and trading features are in, and it even lets you “connect with owners of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie and Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies via Tag Mode to scout out monsters from even more faraway lands”.
Sounds like another winner for the Dragon Quest series.
