During the September 2021 Nintendo Direct, Square Enix revealed gameplay from Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 28, 2021.
Additionally, the publisher revealed that a free demo is available now for players to try and test out the game themselves.
Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is revealed to be a new deck-building RPG where players will use cards in a way that unravels a narrative. The game is being headed by creative Director Yoko Taro, who you may know from the Drakengard and NieR series.
Further, other creative minds from the NieR team will also join the development, including Yosuke Saito, Keiichi Okabe, and Kimihiko Fujisaka. This is a pretty cool lineup of developers, but it’s tough to really say what this game will be. At this point, we don’t know what to expect from this group.
