Dokapon Kingdom: Connect Announced
Idea Factory International, Compile Heart, and Sting have announced Dokapon Kingdom: Connect. The game is a remaster of the party board game and RPG hybrid Dokapon Connect, which released for PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii. Dokapon Kingdom: Connect will release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on April 13, 2023, and in Europe and North America in spring 2023. It will be available both physically and digitally.
Dokapon Kingdom: Connect is set in a kingdom where monsters suddenly appear and attack towns. The king recruits warriors to rescue the towns in order to restore peace and, most importantly, tax revenue. The warrior who collects the most is to be rewarded with the princess’s hand in marriage. The game features four-player online and local multiplayer and includes five game modes: Normal, Story, Shopping Race, Kill Race, and Town Race.
The game cycle sees players spinning a roulette wheel to determine their movement before fighting any opponents in their way, including other players. Players have eleven job classes to choose from, earn experience points to level up their character, and can purchase or steal items.
