Dragon Quest Tact, a tactical game in the vein of Fire Emblem Heroes, has been announced for English language markets. The game, which released in Japan back in July, will come to the west soon–although an exact date has not been announced.
Pre-registration is now available on Google Play. You can watch a CGI trailer below, which does not show gameplay but shows how the game uses classic Dragon Quest villains in a tactical setting.
The game will let you build up and train a team of monsters from the series, then equip them with items and send them into battle. This is a tile-based tactical game, where you guide your team around the battlefield and attack enemy foes.
The game will be a free-to-play title, although the Google Play page emphasizes that you’ll be able to obtain many monsters for free over the course of the game. Tact is set in the land of Orchesterra, where a long-dormant evil has returned, and it’s up to you to force it back.
Last year another Dragon Quest mobile game, Dragon Quest Walk, was released in Japan. The AR game is yet to release in other countries.
