Dragon Quest Rivals is getting a major update in August that will rebrand the title to Dragon Quest Rivals Ace, Square Enix announced. The free-to-play digital card game will also add a new single-player mode.
Square Enix also released a new teaser trailer for Dragon Quest Rivals Ace. Check it out below:
The long-awaited single-player mode is just part of what Square Enix is calling a super major update. It is called the “Solo Battle Adventure” mode, and it will coincide with the release of the new card pack “Trumphial Return of Heroes.”
The game data will carry over to Dragon Quest Rivals Ace, so players will get to continue where they left off when the rebranding arrives. This includes all Gems, Gold, cards, Ranked Matches records, and job levels.
Back in June, the developers tested out various game rules that will get implemented or changed with the major update. One major change is the number of starting cards. The game initially had players start out with four cards at the start of the game. Square Enix tested a start of three cards back in June, but this will go back to the original four starting August 1, 2020 at 12:00 am JST.
Dragon Quest Rivals is available in Japan for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, iOS, and Android.
