Konami’s 7 million-strong smartphone social game, Dragon Collection, is so popular, it’s getting a spin-off title—Dracolle & Poker, which combines it with Poker rules. Users collect and upgrade cards to create a custom card deck, then use the deck in Poker-based card showdowns. Here’s a quick trailer that shows what it looks like:

 

 

Your deck setup determines the flushes, full houses and other hands you can use to add bonus damage and status effects to their attack. Dracolle & Poker is slated for release in late January in Japan for iOS, with an Android release to follow later.

 

Dracolle & Poker isn’t the only sign of Dragon Collection’s popularity, though. The series also had a manga being serialized in Weekly Shounen Magazine in 2011.

        So far we don’t know with certainty if this game is good or not. Nonetheless it looks like a Yugioh knockoff aimed to the “mobile gamer” audience so my hopes aren’t precisely high.

        Have you played Dragon Collection, or are you just jumping to the conclusion the game will be good?

    I think they ripped off Sword & poker on this one.
