Square Enix brings another installment of the Dragon Quest spin-off series to the DS.

It’s undeniable that Square Enix has struck a gold mine on the Nintendo DS with the Dragon Quest series in Japan. Remakes of both Dragon Quest IV and V and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker have both managed to cross the million sales mark in the region, along with the four-times platinum Dragon Quest XI.

A scan from Jump has spilled the beans on Square Enix’s next Dragon Quest title. Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 will expand on its predecessor by increasing the amount of content, including over 300 monsters to scout out. Online play will still be present in the sequel, but players will be allowed to fight other monster teams directly rather than having to use the data download system from the previous game.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 hits Japan later this year. An overseas release has not been announced at this time.

I think you mean Dragon Quest IX, not XI (lol).

I never played the first one and I don't remember what reviews said about it.

I really did not like Dragon Quest Joker, but was a fan of the first two entries into the "monsters" series. Something about it just felt so soulless. Even today, playing the original DQM sucks me in much more despite its silly premise.
