Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory Extended With A Tournament Mode

By Spencer . May 6, 2010 . 12:33am

imageDragon Quest Monster Battle Road II, an arcade game, is coming to Wii under the name Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory. If it was just a card battling game, this may have been short so Square Enix added a single player quest.


In tournament mode you create an avatar and battle townsfolk in Dragon King Town. Win card battles to get stylish clothes like dragon hats and slime fans! Players can also change their avatar’s hair style and gender.


Have a stack of cards from the arcade? You can use them in Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory if you have a Nintendo DSi. A DSiWare app scans cards with the DSi’s camera and unlocks digital versions in the Wii game.

Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory has a bit of motion control too. Players engage in swordfights and use the Wii remote as the legendary Tenku sword.

Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory also has online play over Nintendo Wi-Fi and a bunch of familiar Dragon Quest heroes. Japan gets the game sometime this summer.

    Any chance this will be seen outside of Japan? Meaning, stateside?

      It’s hard to say. Squenix has been weird with DQ lately, what with their handing over the publishing rights for IX to Nintendo and all.

      • Joanna

        That is weird, but I think it has something to do with the deal they made awhile back where Nintendo promised to help SE make DQ popular in the west. I think DQX being on the Wii also has something to do with this deal.

        I never imagined it would include giving the rights to publish in North America to Nintendo, but I guess having the game as one of their franchises makes it easier to market?

    Even if I owned a Wii I wouldn’t pick this up. A card game set in a DWM world. No thanks. Unless it’s got some depth to it guarantee it won’t be any good.

    If I want to play a card game I’d play either Yugioh or Magic the Gathering. With Yugioh I’d still be grinding for cards right about now, however. Other than that plays incredibly well. Magic the Gathering > Yugioh. I have real cards and Wagic is a great PSP homebrew.

      That’s horrible. I care nothing for the two games you mentioned though this game looks awesome so I don’t know what you are talking about

      • kupomogli

        By the pictures it looks incredibly stupid.

    I liked to see this get an English release, but I’m not holding my breath. Square-Enix is the new Nintendo/Namco.

    Also, I hope that you can have an adult as your avatar.

    • MrRobbyM

      Nobody will ever be as bad as Bamco.

  • SeventhEvening

    That DSI scanning functionality is a really cool idea. I’ll probably never play this, but I’d like to see ideas like that come out more. If there could be some kind of home release of some of the other card based arcade systems by using DSi’s camera or the Eyetoy, I’m all for it.

    Unfortunately, there is nearly no chance of a US release without this functionality being completely cut.
