Square Enix Shares 2nd Anniversary Artwork for Voice of Cards

To celebrate the second anniversary of the Voice of Cards series, Square Enix has shared new artwork depicting three crucial characters: Melanie from The Isle Dragon Roars, Laty from The Forsaken Maiden, and Al’e from The Beasts of Burden.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is a deck-building RPG where players will use cards in a way that unravels a narrative. The game is headed by creative director Yoko Taro, who fans will know from the Drakengard and NieR series. Players go on a quest with a seemingly ordinary band of misfits that becomes something far more.

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden takes place across several islands that maidens have protected for generations. The protagonist roams the seas with Laty, a girl who failed to become a maiden. However, they, of course, end up facing some sort of disastrous conflict, leading to players having to “circumvent fate” itself. There is a familiar face in the revealed cast of characters, making me wonder about this title’s connective tissue to the initial entry. This is a Yoko Taro endeavor, so there’s bound to be a slew of connections.

Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden introduces a new gameplay mechanic, letting players trap monsters in cards used to defeat them so they can be used as skills in combat. Plot-wise, monsters and humans have been at each other’s throats for millennia, and in the midst of constant crisis, a certain girl loses her home due to monsters. She seeks vengeance and learns more about her world when traveling with a mysterious boy.
