Square Enix released a new teaser trailer showing gameplay for the upcoming smartphone tactical RPG, Dragon Quest Tact.
Dragon Quest Tact is a tactical RPG where you command familiar monsters from the series. It also has turn-based elements from the Dragon Quest series. However, unlike the traditional RPG battles from the series, Dragon Quest Tact involves moving 3D monsters on grid-based maps. Staff includes Yuji Horii as its General Director, Akira Toriyama as Monster Designer, and Koichi Sugiyama as the composer.
The game will release in 2020 but those accepted to the closed beta test will get to play it earlier starting February 27, 2020. Those of you interested in signing up for the closed beta test can do so at the official website. The application period started today and will be available until February 25, 2020 at 9:59 am JST.
