Nintendo sent copies of Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 with a neat little monster field guide. While it doesn’t cover all 300+ monsters in the game, it has facts and Dragon Quest style jokes. Ah, Cyber Slimes.
The monster field guide only features monsters, not the game’s story. So, what’s Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 about? Here’s what the game’s instruction booklet has to say.
Do you have what it takes to be a monster scout champion?
Monster scouts can bend monsters to their will, creating teams of wild and wonderful beasts to send into fierce, nonstop battles against rival scouts. The greats and boldest scouts are set to meet in the Monster Scout Challenge, where they will fight for the honor of becoming champion of the world.
But it is no easy task to reach the arena where the tournament takes place. Only a select few, the best of the best, are able to secure spots on the airships that travel there.
One after another, the mighty ships take to the air and turn their prows in the direction of the distant arena. Stowed away among the fleet is a young monster scout. For years he has dreamed of becoming the monster scout champion of the world – a dream you can help him realize!
But his ambitions suffer a fatal setback when his airship is caught in a mysterious storm that seems to come out of nowhere. Buffeted by raging winds, the out-of-control airship plummets from the sky and crashes on a deserted, previously unknown island… an island home to colossal monsters the likes of which no monster scout has seen before!
Can you escape this strange and deadly island? Can you crack the enigma that lies at its heart? Will you reach the Monster Scout Challenge in time to claim the championship?
Somewhere on this mysterious island, the answers await. Find them. Your fate is your hands.
