Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Trailer Hints At International Release

By Spencer . April 4, 2010 . 1:01am

Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 has monsters to scout — tons of monsters. You can even fuse them, Shin Megami Tensei style. Each monster has a relative size. The hero can carry up to three monsters, but not three Bjorns. Being a giant, he takes up all three panels. You can carry three small slimes or a two panel dragon and a slime.



The trailer also mentions worldwide online tournaments… an odd feature to develop if Square Enix only had plans to release Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 in Japan. For now, that’s the only country confirmed to get Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 and it launches there on April 28.

    Never played a DQM game. Going to take a wild guess here, I guess it’s a find a monster, add it to your party and use them to fight sort of game? Did anyone here play the first one?

      There are more than two DQM games. There are actually 6-7 but, in my opinion, their quality has degraded over time. if you’re going to try one, try DQM2 for the GBC.

      DQM is something of a more mature pokemon with an excellent breeding system. If you mixed Pokemon, SMT, and Dragon Quest, DQM is what you’d end up with.

      What you did in the first Monsters: Joker was basically you went on an adventure collecting monsters to win a competition. It wasn’t particularly interesting, but the games aren’t about story. It was far more interesting in the earlier Monster games, such as trying to save a slowly sinking island and whatnot.

      Edit: but not three Bjorns

      Worst news ever, Spencer.

    Why does the main character look like Super Saiyan 4 Goku color pallete wise

  • Well regardless of if there’ll be a international release or not, I shall continue to wait! :(
