Square Enix Shows First Look at Voice of Cards from Yoko Taro

Square Enix revealed a first look at Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars from NieR creator Yoko Taro and announced the Voice of Cards release date. Voice of Cards will release October 28 for Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam, and PlayStation 4, and a demo is available now on the Switch eShop.

It's a card-based RPG game where everything, from conversations to travel and even shopping, takes place through cards.

Here's how Square Enix describes it:

In Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, players will venture through a story set long ago in a world shrouded in mystery, guided by the narrative voice of the Game Master (voiced in English by Todd Haberkorn). Set in a world of swords and sorcery, the game is told entirely through the medium of cards.

Players will follow the protagonist as he sets off on a journey to defeat a recently reawakened Dragon, that is threatening the land and its people, in hopes of securing an immense reward. He is joined on his travels by his companions; Mar, a monster very attached to him, and Melanie, a black witch with a grudge against the Dragon. Players will need to make choices throughout the story, as well as join in turn-based field and dungeon battles that unfold on a board, in the manner of traditional tabletop RPGs.

Square Enix will also release several DLC packs, incliding one that gives you NieR costumes to use on the main characters.
