Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (DQMJ2) is the upcoming monster hunting role-playing game for the DS. The player assumes the role of a child who quite possibly aspires to follow in the footsteps of Michael Vick as he captures wild creatures and forces them to fight in death defying arena battles for money, fame and maybe even the girl. All joking aside, the game is portrayed in a much more innocent light and is well deserving of its E rating.
Just as in DQMJ, DQMJ2 functions in a similar fashion to Pokemon where players will rely on their monsters to fight turn-based battles for them in nearly every situation. Unlike Pokemon, there is quite a bit more depth to the mechanics on offer here. Players will field multiple monsters at a time with the overall number of monsters allowed in the party being dependent on the size of the monsters chosen.
