Not too long ago, we brought you some rather gloomy news as the servers for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker were finally coming to an end. Nintendo have fully redeemed that sadness at E3 though as the company will be publishing the once Japanese exclusive Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 for an August release. Many of you are probably familiar with the Dragon Quest Monsters franchise, but if you are not, this title will perfect to get introduced to the age-old franchise. The Dragon Quest Monsters series is a mix of Pokemon & Dragon Quest, in which the player must “scout” (instead of catching) different monsters and then use the said creatures to battle foes throughout the game.
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 looks to bring even more life to the series with up to eight-player local play, online multiplayer tournaments, and a Tag Mode that can let players recruit monsters from Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation & Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. Since releasing in Japan back in March, Joker 2 has dominated the DS charts in Japan and hopefully will be met with the same reaction when it finally comes to the states. You can check out the first ever english trailer for the game, fresh out of this year’s E3 below and get ready as Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 launches August 28th.
