Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is a card-based RPG launching on October 28. It’s going to be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. This new tabletop RPG is sure to spark the imagination of players, especially with its unique way of storytelling.

The game is being developed by the same creative team responsible for the NieR and Drakengard series. It includes:

  • Creative Director Yoko Taro (Drakengard series, NieR series)
  • Executive Producer Yosuke Saito (NieR series)
  • Music Director Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard 3, NieR series)
  • Character Designer Kimihiko Fujisaka (Drakengard series)

In the game, players experience a story in a world shrouded in mystery and guided by the Game Master, voiced in English by Todd Haberkorn. Set in a world all about swords and sorcery, it’s told through the medium of cards.

Players take on the role of a protagonist who journeys to defeat a reawakened Dragon to save the land and its people as well as get an immense reward. Joining in are Mar, a monster attached to the player for some reason, and a black witch named Melanie who appears to have a grudge against the Dragon.

Throughout the story, players must make choices and experience turn-based gameplay, much like traditional tabletop RPGs.
