Following on from information released by Square Enix in October surrounding the development of 3DS title, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3, has come a new batch of information that touches on online aspects of the game such as Wi-Fi battles.
The Wi-Fi battles feature in the upcoming title will allow you to battle with other monster masters online. Each day, two types of tournaments will take place for a certain amount of time, and final rankings from the tournaments will be announced at the end of that day. They will start up again on the following day, allowing you to join a tournament at any time whilst they are live.
Here’s details on each type of tournament:
In this tournament, there are no restrictions on which type of monsters are allowed to battle, each monster master will fight using their selected monsters to earn the title of “strongest player”.
In Challenger GP tournaments, there are certain conditions that need to be met in order to register a monster. You’ll need to form a party under these conditions.
In addition to the tournaments, you will be able to participate in Wi-Fi Ranking Battles. Each week, ten ‘participation tickets’ are distributed to allow you to take part in these battles. When you participate in a Wi-Fi Ranked Battle, you will be matched with someone of similar strength and play through 3 battles with your match. In addition to the system randomly matching you with someone of similar strength, there’s also the option to select the strength of your opponent, the key aim of this would be due to the fact that the higher the strength of the opponent, the more points you will receive in the rankings.
Other information revealed includes the fact that you can ride a monster into battle. There are some special techniques that can only be obtained whilst doing this.
And finally, you’ll also receive coins for battling with other players, you can exchange these coins for accessories and new monsters.
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 will be released in Japan on March 24, there hasn’t been any news on release dates outside of Japan as of yet.
