Introducing Bravely Default Maker’s Next RPG, Monster Takt

By Sato . June 25, 2013 . 3:23pm

We’ve been seeing a few new monster-collecting RPGs lately, with Level-5’s ghostly Pokémon-like Youkai Watch for the Nintendo 3DS, and GungHo Online’s Puzzles & Dragons Z, with its evolving dragons. The latest of the collecting and evolution trend is an upcoming mobile game called Monster Takt, by Bravely Default: Flying Fairy makers Silicon Studio.

 

 

The world in Monster Takt is now desolate because of the revival of the Demon Lord. The monsters who co-existed with mankind have sprouted evil hearts and begun to attack humans. The youths who’ve acquired the ability to calm the corrupt hearts of these monsters and control them with their mysterious Takt, start their adventures to defeat the Demon Lord with the help of their new comrades.

 

 

In Monster Takt, you play as a hero who has acquired the Magical Takt, which is used to control monsters in strategic RPG-style battles. There are over 300 monsters in high quality 3D models with different attributes of Fire, Water, Wood, Light and Dark.

 

The goal of the game is to create the strongest team by gathering powerful monsters who will be helping you out in the battlefield. The key to success is knowing your monsters and their attributes to put them in the most advantageous strategic positions against your enemies.

 

By collecting rubies, you can use them to evolve your monsters into much more powerful forms, although they will revert back to Lv. 01.

 

In addition, you can also power up your monsters by using other monsters as ingredients, along with a certain amount of rubies.

 

Silicon Studio is currently offering a free rare monster, Lapin, for players who register prior to the game’s release. The above image is a Wood-attribute Lapin. There are also Fire, Water, Light and Dark variants.

 

Monster Takt is slated for release this summer for Android devices. It will be a free-to-play, while featuring premium cash shop items. The game is also slated for release for iOS devices in the future.

    Dat Laprados.

    All these monster-raising RPGs just make me want a new Jade Coccoon. ;_;

    • JustThisOne

      Oh man, that game. :’)

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Makes me want a new Monster Rancher ;3;

    • AndyLC

      I’d love to see a Magic Pengel/Graffiti Kingdom game on tablet and mobile

    • Pockystix

      I thought it looked like Lapras and Lagiacrus lol

      • Solomon_Kano

        It does look like Lagiacrus lol.

  • davidvinc

    I was totally into it, ready to put it on my watch list — all up until the last paragraph.

    • The-Beast

      Me too ! I thought it was for 3ds, then read the last paragraph and lost interest.

      • SoundMatch

        I dont mind mobile games as long as they are good, but I’m really starting to hate Free to Play because to get everything in the game you need to spend so much damn money.

    • Kefkiroth

      “upcoming mobile game” already gave away that it’s for smartphones. Plus the vertical screenshots.

  • idrawrobots

    So cute!

    • Yuriangels

      I know!!!

  • Neophoton

    Shame it’s on Android first, I’d gladly play this on iOS. I loved Bravely Default and this looks downright adorable.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Hey, hey. This is one of the rare games to hit Android before iOS, if at all, let us have this one!

      • Neophoton

        I’d just vouch for it to be released at the same time. :( I suppose I’ll just have to wait for the eventual iOS release.

        • Solomon_Kano

          That’d be the ideal scenario. I really do wonder why simultaneous releases are such a rare thing in mobile gaming.

          • Neophoton

            Likewise, it makes me wonder as to why it’s not seen often.

          • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

            Taking a big BIG wild guess here. It could have something to do with the companies themselves. Apple and Google aren’t exactly on friendly terms. Not even the friendly competition type terms.

          • Solomon_Kano

            I suppose that could possibly hinder things, though I wonder if they’d take that so far as to prevent software from hitting each other’s platforms at the same time. That’d suck if that were the reason.

          • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

            Yeah it would ( >_<) Though there has been some precedence of it don'e in other places. Like Microsoft did with Skyrim. Not like it would hurt sales (at least I don't think). People would buy it for the system/OS they have either way.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Exactly. Phones aren’t exactly consoles lol.

            “Final Fantasy VI isn’t coming to Android!? I’M SWITCHING TO iOS!”

            Who’d do that? lol

          • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

            LOL! Agreed!

      Apart from the scarcity of Android-launch games, Android at least has /options/. If it launches on Android first you can play it on a plethora of Android phones on a plethora of networks, or you can even play it on PC via Bluestacks. Use an old Android phone that’s out of date? No problem, you can force it to run (albeit laggy) via APK installation.

      If a game releases on iOS? I hope you have an iPhone 4 because otherwise you’re not playing any new releases, even if it’s a 2D game. That is why every game should launch either simultaneously, or Android first..

      • Neophoton

        I actually don’t even use iPhone, I settle on iPod Touch because I mostly need something for my music. The games are just a side bonus.

        Otherwise, I’m not really that much into mobile games. If there’s something I want to play on it, I’ll give it a spin.

  • ragingmerifes

    The only bad part is that games for Android and iOS are as often as localized as Sega Saturn games. :(

  • Byas

    WOW ANOTHER RPG BY THE MAKERS OF THIS GAME I LOVED AND… oh, mobile, never mind. :c

    • Pyrotek85

      Took the words out of my mouth. I mean, I’ve got an Android phone but I don’t want to be killing the battery constantly lol.

      • Gemlit

        Though I agree with both of your statements, Byas and Pyrotek85, I don’t have a Vita or a 3DS. Sure, the quality of both games would rise significantly, but those of us that don’t have those handhelds are guaranteed to skip it if it only came to 3DS or Vita. We just don’t have enough money.

        • Pyrotek85

          Well if they do a good job I’m open to it as a platform. Could even get a cheap tablet if it’s really good.

  • Warboss Aohd

    Soundz goo- ‘Android’

    GAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

  • Tom_Phoenix

    Well, on the bright side, they are working on Bravely Default 2 as well.

  • deadMastershiro

    Why! is there no just god.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    Android? I thought this was a 3DS game! ):<

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      This it would look like Bravely Default Visuals

  • Exkaiser

    It looks a lot like a more traditional RPG take on Puzzle and Dragon- the collection and leveling elements sound fairly similar. It looks pretty cute!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I love those bored ass faces

  • Uso Ewin

    Still no feet I see.

  • Edzo04

    phone game :(

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Sato trolled us by waiting until the end, lol!

    • TheExile285

      Uh no. It says iPhone in the top header next to the Japan symbol lol

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    Even the in-game characters don’t look thrilled about this

  • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

    It seems Japan is going through a small Iphone trend lately.

    • AndyLC

      It’s not a small trend, Japan is actually leading in iOS games globally.
      The world’s highest grossing videogame is Puzzle & Dragons, a Japanese iOS and android puzzle game. It makes 70 million dollars a month.

      • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

        I wonder who gave you a down vote?

        • AndyLC

          Probably someone that downvotes anything and all things related to mobile gaming.

  • TheExile285

    Why…. why did they have to go to iOS. Didn’t BD sell well on 3DS?

    • Stuart Nisbet

      It sold really well! It’s just not developed by the same people, this isn’t S.E.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    This news makes me kinda sad here as it kinda shows that S-E is really concentrating more of their resources towards mobile platform rather than the handheld platform.T_T

    • Stuart Nisbet

      It’s not even S.E…You should read a little more carefully. That said, they’re trying to deliberately mislead customers with an art style that closely mimics Yoshida’s, particularly in the ’4 heroes’ era.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Ohhh.O_o Tx a lot for the info here.

        The art indeed mislead me here making me think that this is one of Yoshida’s(S-E) games.T_T

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I was getting hyped until I saw the Iphone tag :/…

    • Syn

      You know!!! I was super hyped up for a monster game with the bravely graphics….then it said mobile and my hype meter plumetted back down to the negatives, am sure it will be great but mobile games tend to be lost when after several years. smh

  • King mogz

    How do I register? Just enter my email and confirm it?

  • Stuart Nisbet

    Just in case anyone cares, you can clearly tell that Yoshida is not affiliated with this project in any way, and before people start flaming S.E, this isn’t any sort of initiative from them. Thanks.
