In DRAGON QUEST TACT, players will orchestrate battles by directing familiar monsters in heated tactical battles. Players will need to strategically select units with different strengths and abilities to fight on a grid-like map, and can recruit new iconic DRAGON QUEST monsters as allies and power them up in order to take on even more ferocious battles. The Battle Road offers additional challenge to daring players and contains additional story content for players eager to learn more about their monster allies. In this simple-yet-deep tactical RPG game, players can enjoy a form of combat new to the DRAGON QUEST series with a large roster of beloved monsters.
