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.
