No "Professional" Monsters In Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2

Recommended Videos

Japan has two versions of Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, the original release from 2010 and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Professional which has even more monsters to scout. Nintendo is bringing Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 to North America on September 19th.

 

And to clarify it’s just Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2. None of the content from Professional is in the localized version.

 

I played a demo of Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 where my character, JOKER2, scouted a slime and chimera. Rory Bellows (Square Enix loves their puns) guided me through the menus and warned me about a giant snake (pictured). The game switched to a dual screen cutscene of the snake slithering through a tunnel.

 

Like the original Dragon Quest Monsters Joker you cannot control your monsters. After you choose "fight" your team decides which enemy to target and attacks to use. New to Joker 2 is you have three monsters under your control. I meandered through a cave, occasionally surprising monsters by touching them while their backs were turned. Battles, at least in the demo, weren’t a challenge. Once I had a chimera on my side monsters were no match for JOKER2 (all caps).
