Square-Enix announced a new RPG, Voice of Cards: The Isle of Dragon Roars, during their most recent Nintendo Direct. Directed by Yoko Taro from the Drakengard and NieR series and produced by Yosuke Saito, this is an RPG told entirely through cards.
In Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, players will venture through a story set long ago in a world shrouded in mystery, guided by the narrative voice of the Game Master (voiced in English by Todd Haberkorn). Set in a world of swords and sorcery, the game is told entirely through the medium of cards. Players will follow the protagonist as he sets off on a journey to defeat a recently reawakened Dragon, that is threatening the land and its people, in hopes of securing an immense reward. He is joined on his travels by his companions; Mar, a monster very attached to him, and Melanie, a black witch with a grudge against the Dragon. Players will need to make choices throughout the story, as well as join in turn-based field and dungeon battles that unfold on a board, in the manner of traditional tabletop RPGs.
Players who are interested will be able to get DLC that can change the costumes of the protagonists to resemble characters from NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… with a special bundle. They’ll also be able to change the dice and the game board to resemble characters from NieR as well.
The game will launch for PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch on October 28th.
