Former SMT Director Cozy Okada Made A Poker Game, And Konami Turned It Into A Series



Some time ago, Cozy Okada, the former director of Shin Megami Tensei, made a game that combined poker, RPGs and fighting called Swords & Poker. Now, Konami have released a new mobile title in the series called Swords & Poker Adventures.

The game takes the same basic principles: At the start of every round, nine cards from the deck get dealt out in a three by three pattern. You and your opponent then take turns placing two cards to form a proper hand. The better the hand, the better the damage.

That gets modified depending on what levels, equipment and other fun stuff are being thrown in with the RPG mix. Future updates will also add player-versus-player components, expected in the fall.


While Swords & Poker Adventures is only available on iOS right now, an Android version is coming soon.
