Been hankering for more Dragon Quest
since the release of The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors?
Square Enix has announced Dragon Quest Victory
for Wii in Japan, an adaptation of the Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road
arcade game. The Wii version is set to launch this summer and features card-based battles for up to four players via local split-screen and the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The game will also include a "Tournament" mode, in which players face off against a succession of NPCs in a virtual town, collecting cards.
Perhaps the coolest feature of all is connectivity between the arcade and Wii games, using a DSi. Players will be able to download a special DSiWare app that will scan in the arcade version's cards, allowing transport over to the Wii game. The price of the DSiWare app is currently unknown.
