Dragon Quest IX Monsters Appear in Dragon Quest Battle Road Mobile
Square Enix cross promotes.
Someone sent me an e-mail today asking if Square Enix was using its popular Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road arcade machines to promote Dragon Quest IX. I'm not sure if this is or is not the case, but today Square Enix did announce a tie-up between DQIX and the mobile version of Battle Road.
Starting today, Dragon Quest Battle Road Mobile players have access to the Hoshizora no Kioku (Memories of the Starry Sky) card pack. This card pack features monsters from Dragon Quest IX.
If you've been playing DQIX, you may recognize some of the creatures in these card sample pics and screenshots:
Dragon Quest Battle Road Mobile is a mobile version of the Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road arcade unit. Players use cards to create a team of three monsters, and face off against other players in online fights. The game costs 200 points (about ¥210) per month to play, with card packs running 50 points and up.
