It has been announced that Dragon Quest Monsters - Joker 2 will be coming to North America this year. It will be released on August 28, and will be priced at $29.99.
This game, the latest entry in the monster-collecting spinoff series of the Dragon Quest franchise, features more than 300 different monsters that can be recruited for the player's party. In addition to fighting for the player in battle, monsters can also be trained in 240 different skill trees or fused together into more powerful monsters. The game also features several multiplayer options, including eight-player local play, online multiplayer competitions, and a Tag Mode that lets players exchange data with other Joker 2 players. The Tag Mode will even let players recruit monsters from Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation or Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies by exchanging data with those games.
