Square Enix has announced that Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
This new card-based tabletop RPG comes from the creative team behind the NieR and Drakengard series, which includes creative director Yoko Taro (Drakengard series, NieR series), executive producer Yosuke Saito (NieR series), music director Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard 3, NieR series) and character designer Kimihiko Fujisaka (Drakengard series).
You will have the chance to journey 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. You 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. You 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.
Those that pre-order the game will receive the Golden Dragon Pattern downloadable content, which swaps the reverse card design to an original design by Kimihiko Fujisaka as well as a Traditional Avatar, which allows you to change the design of the game piece on the field into traditional craftwork.
There is also a free demo now available on the Nintendo eShop, which acts as a prologue episode which “reveals what happened on the day before the events of Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, following the Ivory Order as they search for a stolen royal treasure.”
Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th October 2021.
