Dragon Quest: Monster Battle Road (ドラゴンクエスト モンスターバトルロード Doragon Kuesutō Monsutā Batoru Rōdo?) is a Japanese arcade game based on Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King released in 2007, only in Japan, using the Taito Type X system. Players battle monsters and can win real-life cards with monster data imprinted on them.[1]

As of November 7, 2008, Dragon Quest: Monster Battle Road has contributed between 1.6 and 1.7 billion ¥ in earnings for Square Enix.[2]

A sequel, Dragon Quest: Monster Battle Road II Legends, was announced at the 2009 Jump Fiesta in Tokyo.[3]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game is based around battles with monsters from the Dragon Quest games and heroes from Dragon Quest . The battles take place in a coliseum and the monsters either can come from the game itself or cards the player can insert into the machine itself. The combat itself is very simple and only uses a two-button system.[4]

The machine gives the player a free card at the beginning of a match. These cards can then be used in battle and if the player has one of the rarer cards, a special attack becomes available to be used in battle.
