Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden Will Continue Square Enix’s Card-Based RPG

Voice of Cards the Beasts of Burden

The Voice of Cards series continues with Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden, coming this month.

We don’t blame you if you’ve not heard of the series, despite being developed by Square Enix, it’s not received quite as much fanfare as some other titles. But the series, which depicts its whole world through the medium of cards, is well worth a look. The first entry, The Isle Dragon Roars, is a great little game, and as we remarked in our review, “If you’d like an RPG experience that differs from the norm, Square Enix has nailed it once again.”

Now, Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden is set to continue the series, though not the story, since each game sports a stand-alone tale that can be enjoyed without having to have played previous games. In other words, you can jump into the series at any pint.

This third entry takes place in a world where monsters and humans have been at their throats for generations and follows the adventures of a girl who loses her home to monsters. She embarks on a quest for vengeance and, while we’ve yet to get our hands on it, we wouldn’t be surprised if she leans humans are the real monsters all along.

New story aside, Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden will also let you capture monsters and use them to attack foes, which sounds a little horrific and fits in with suspicion that the monsters won’t turn out to be the real bad guys.

However this tale unfolds, you’ll be able to purchase Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden when it arrives on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC via Steam this September 13th. And if you want a taste of what the series has to offer, you can download a demo of The Isle Dragon Roars from Steam.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
