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.
