Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 receives European release date

Nintendo of Europe have today provided a firm release date for Nintendo DS title, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2.

The spin-off from the popular Dragon Quest franchise will launch on October 7th, and follows a storyline in which the Albatross airship crash lands on a far-away island. Stranded on such a location, you must set out to capture and train the wild monsters – building a team that will enable you to battle other monster scouts in the annual race to become the world’s greatest monster scout.

Along the way you will be tasked with rescuing your fellow airship passengers and crew members who’ve gone missing, whilst solving mysteries on the island as you make plans to escape for good. Beyond completion, you may fly straight back to the island with newly upgraded powers and levelled up monsters to encounter. Enjoy doing the whole exploration again – this time recruiting some of the biggest and most powerful creatures from previous games.

You’ll also be able to fight and trade monsters locally or through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, a Tag Mode enabling you to battle and scout those of other owners. You can also connect with owners of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie and Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies to scout out monsters from those games.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS across Europe on October 7th,
