Samurai & Dragons Is Out In English In Asian Territories

By Ishaan . February 1, 2013 . 5:00pm

Samurai & Dragons, Sega’s other free-to-play PlayStation Vita game, is out in Asia, and it has English-language text. The game will be monetized through in-game item sales, and is a four-player monster battle title that also has a card battle element. In case you missed it before, here’s an early trailer:

 

 

Samurai & Dragons is available for download via the PlayStation Network in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. You should be able to try it out by creating a Hong Kong PlayStation Network account.

 

Over in Japan, Sega have been promoting the game with crossover character cards from their own games as well as those from other companies, such as Type-Moon’s Fate/Stay Night.

    Free to play digital title in English. Has a chance in the west then?

    • benhofb

      Well, since it is already in English I’d imagine it would be easier to bring over. Hopefully a US publisher will pick it up. My only hopes are that whoever this publisher is releases the Deluxe physical version…

      • Guest

        Why? This is a free to play game where you can only play it about an hour a day. Seems like a waste IMO to have something like that physically

        • Marik78

          That’s totally wrong.
          Monsters get their stamina back after a while, ressources increases over time and the “dungeon gauge” greatly increases when you upgrade your buildings. I’m been playing almost non-stop since the beginning of the 3rd season.

          Well, I am somewhat of a box-nerd. Anything I would actually want to buy I would want a box for as well. Besides, the deluxe versions of these types of games usually have dlc on the chip or other bonus stuff.

    I would love for this to come out in America.
    Hopefully it does at some point.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Yeahhhhh.^_^ The happyness of living in Asia lol.^_^

  • OverlordZetta

    I know “free to play” and all, but did this get a physical release in any form? I see it being a hard thing to bring over with some of the names involved and all.

    • benhofb

      See my comment above. There was a physical Deluxe model released in Japan. I don’t know if it was released in HK though. If it was… well… I should import it! XD

    Gah, to think it will be out in Malaysia.. But I’m using USA PSN right now,oh well…

    Hey thanks Siliconera I have a hong kong account. I did not know about this. I’ll have to get another memory stick to switch accounts though.

    • benhofb

      Meh. It looks like I’m going to have to do the same one of these days. Still think it sucks that Sony made it so it was one user per memory card. All those japanese games are just calling for me…

    Graphically, it doesn’t look very good. However, you don’t need to push the bleeding edge in visuals in order to be fun. And, that, it looks like it could be.

  • HassanJamal

    Tried the game for a few minutes, liked the co-op battle stuff. A bit confused bout setting up my land?

    • Marik78

      The official website is really useful. Short resume: you get 2 additional land conquest per day. You can get more by finishing quests and building/upgrading a church.

      • HassanJamal

        Will check it out. Thank god for multitaskable ps vita :D

  • Espilonarge

    It’s just a rehash of Kingdom Conquest on iOS/Android with a Samurai flavor. They just released Kingdom Conquest 2 last month so if you’re that desperate to play it but you don’t have a Vita but you do have a mobile phone/tablet, hit up the iTunes/App Store or Google Play and get cracking.

      It doesn’t have SEGA and 3rd party cameos.

  • Ladius

    Despite its English localization, I wonder if it will be released in the west due to the licensing of some of the cameo cards available in game… I hope that isn’t an issue, though.

    • Elvick

      They could just not use some of the cards that are an issue. Would be lame, but at least we’d get the game.

    Got excited for a second there.
