Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory Mouthful Announced

#1 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

No, mouthful isn't a part of the title. So anyway, Dragon Quest X may be coming to Wii, at some point, but us Westerners don't even have Dragon Quest IX on the DS yet (though it's coming) and now Square goes and announces another Dragon Quest title for Wii. This one's not a mainline entry and is based on the arcade game series with the same name (there are two!) some sort of card battling video games. Andriasang has some details.

Square Enix announced today a Wii port of its Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road arcade game. The Wii version, based off the DQMBR II Legend sequel, will be named Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory and will see release this Summer. Pricing has yet to be set.

Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road is a card-based arcade game similar in basic concept to Sega's Mushi King series. Players use physical cards to summon classic Dragon Quest monsters into battle. As of January, Square Enix has shipped 200 million cards for the game.

The Wii version will replicate the basic gameplay of the arcade version. Players will be able to compete in four player battles using a single Wii, and also take part in online battles via Wi-Fi. The Wii version is also getting a new "Tournament Mode" where you collect cards while facing off in battle against a variety of characters in a virtual town.

Yup, 200 million, that wasn't a typo, so I guess you could say it's rather popular over there. Here's a trailer of the second arcade game, which andriasang claims the Wii title will be based on. The animation is pretty freaking awesome if you ask me, which you shouldn't I guess.

And here's a bunch of videos showing various cards at work, I got them from GAF. Some of them are stupidly awesome looking, so do click on some randomly.

Also, here's the official website, which should open shortly. Though, if this title is unplayable without cards, I suppose it won't make it over here, sadly. Either way, I hope Dragon Quest X battles will look at least as good as some of this incredibly animated stuff! What say you?

Might be a little too hardcore for me.

It should have online MP as well, wi-fi logo and all.

So is there a camera on the player during the game? Because I totally wanna have my Yu Gi Oh moment, but I don't really wanna look at some dude's balls.

Andriasang has some more details.

Screens of the Wii version @ Famitsu.
More @ the link. I hope Dragon Quest X will have a similar look.

Lol. I dunno if this is really planned but...

That's kind of overkill, Square, people don't want the whole arcade in their home version...
