Square Enix has released a new set of details and screenshots for Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 introducing the game’s local multiplayer features, StreetPass Battles, and SpotPass functionality.
Get the information below.
Through Local Multiplayer, you can have battles and trade monsters with nearby rivals. Local battles consists of “1-on-1 Battles” and eight team maximum “Grand Prix Battles.”
Battle against rivals and compete for the title of ultimate monster master. Deciding which monster to ride in “Team Organization” is also important.
“Judge Points” are displayed at the bottom of the screen and are the key to victory. By attacking, using special skills and effects, and defeating your opponent’s monsters, your Judge Points will increase.
Through Local Multiplayer, you can also trade monsters with other players. You can even give a monster to a friend without receiving one in return.
Through StreetPass Battles, you can fight other players’ teams that you pass in the streets. Similar to Local Multiplayer, not only can you test your skills and collect Communication Coins, you can scout rival teams’ monsters throughout the whole town.
You can set a team of monsters to be passed along via StreetPass from the menu.
When you’re set to ride a monster in battle, your character will appear riding that monster. Your customizations and such will be reflected.
You can scout a single monster up to Rank A in battle. When you come across a monster on a rival team that you want, attack it boldly.
In addition to Local Multiplayer and StreetPass Battles, and the previously introduced Wi-Fi Multiplayer, there is also a SpotPass element. If you have SpotPass set, you can receive valuable items, treasure chests, and various other good things.
Sometimes a Stealth Box will appear in the Internet Multiplayer Plaza. What could be inside?
Special battles with special teams including rare monsters may also be triggered.
Great Riders Cup
The Great Riders Cup is another local play element. More details will be announced at a later date.
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 is due out for 3DS in Japan on March 24.
