Yoko Taro Talks About Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars in New Square Enix Blog Post

In a recent Square Enix Blog post, Creative Director Yoko Taro shared his thoughts on his most recent title, Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars. As expected of Taro, his comments are kind of weird but still endearing in his expected fashion. He goes on some rant about a kitten shivering in the rain to describe the game’s appeal, which sort of does wonders. Further, he expressed a desire to create a new 2D pixel art game, though Square Enix has apparently shown no interest in allowing him to do so. Still, it’s difficult to tell if he’s entirely joking or not.

You can read the entirety of Yoko Taro’s brief personal divulgences regarding Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars on Square Enix Blog.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is a new 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.

Further, other creative minds from the NieR team joined development, including Yosuke Saito, Keiichi Okabe, and Kimihiko Fujisaka.

If you missed it, check out our review of the title’s PlayStation 4 release. I think this game is a much appreciated fresh step from Yoko Taro’s work with the expectedness of NieR and the like. Hopefully, it succeeds and leads to further creative avenues.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
