Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 is confirmed.

Thought the first one was OK, fun enough as a stop-gap before other games, but I certainly wouldn't play a sequel ahead of Pokémon SoulSilver or DQIX.

Unless it's massively better.

Yeah, hopefully they get rid of the stupider aspects to it, such as the jet ski and vending machines. I like my DQs to be a little more... traditional, I suppose. And yeah, get rid of the main character. Awful design.

liked the first one untill the moon and the sun dungeons which was annoying. so i stopped playing it.

hopefully tjhe second one becomes less about grining and more about adventures and other stuff.

I expected anther DQ Monsters game, but not a Joker Sequel.
Joker itself did 1.4 million. I wouldn't know if the game had any negative buzz from players in Japan, but it's probably a safer bet to follow it up rather than do an unrelated Monsters title.

Besides, DQX is years away and what other million sellers do Square Enix have in Japan other than DQVIr in between then?

Versus XIII? Please.

Ehn, Level 5 working on a sequel to DQMJ probably wouldn't interfere with TOSE doing another Slime Morimori if Enix wanted it to happen.
Level-5 didn't make DQMJ, but yeah, it'd be different teams making those two anyway, I'm guessing. Rocket Slime didn't exactly fly off the shelves tho, even in Japan, right?

hahaha god I don't know where my brain is.

Ah well, point still stands. If Enix wanted both, we'd have both. Morimori 2 did indeed underperform in Japan. 300k isn't anything to sneeze at, though. I'm sure the series will get picked up again at some point.

Mark my words. Versus XIII will sell 1M in Japan.

@the guy who said DQX will bomb:

:lol :lol :lol

They'd be dumb not to do a sequel.

Also, Horii's gotta make some of his money back when DQX bombs.
Why in the world would DQX bomb? It's one of the most popular franchises in Japan. Even if it does bomb, it wont bomb [there]

I invested around 60 hours in Joker, not the most remarkable of the Dragon Quest games but it was a fairly enjoyable distraction. I'll grab the sequel.

Add me to the list of people pining for a sequel to Rocket Slime.
