This Sure As Hell Isn't Dragon Quest X

Dragon Quest X, unsurprisingly, was not revealed today by Square Enix. Instead, another Dragon Quest Wii game was, Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory, nary an X in sight.

What is Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory? It's a Wii port of a Japanese arcade game, one that utilizes a trading card collecting mechanic that lets players scan Dragon Quest cards and summon well-worn Dragon Quest beasts onto the battlefield.

According to details from IGN, the Wii version will feature Nintendo DSi interactivity, letting players scan their already collected cards with a DSiWare application for use in the Wii game. Local online and multiplayer battles will surely make Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory a hit.

This is what the arcade version looks like, should you be curious about the popular-in-Japan crossover of Dragon Quest and collectible card games.
