Dokapon Kingdom: Connect Switch Game's Trailer Reveals May 9 Launch in West

posted on by Alex Mateo
Game debuts in Japan on April 13

Idea Factory International began streaming a new English trailer for Compile Heart and developer Sting's Dokapon Kingdom remake game for the Switch titled Dokapon Kingdom: Connect on Tuesday, and it reveals that the game will launch physically and digitally in North America and Europe on May 9.

The game will debut for the Switch in Japan on April 13.

The game will have new online multiplayer features and will feature three standard jobs: Warrior, Magician, and Thief. The game will also feature six advanced jobs: Alchemist, Cleric, Spellsword, Monk, Acrobat, and Ninja.

The Dokapon series is a hybrid RPG and board game. Players roll dice to move their character that number of spaces on the board. Landing on spaces triggers battles, events, mini-games, and encounters with other players, growing their player character as they progress.

Sting developed the two prior games in the series, Dokapon Kingdom and Dokapon Journey. Dokapon Kingdom launched for the PlayStation 2 in 2007, and on the Wii in 2008. Atlus released the Wii version of the game in the West in 2008. Dokapon Journey launched for the Nintendo DS in Japan in 2008.
