Square Enix has unveiled Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, the next project from Nier’s Yoko Taro.
Taro collaborators like Yosuke Saito, Keiichi Okabe, and Kimihiko Fujisaka are also on the project. Saito and Okabe work on the Nier series, while Fujisaka has worked on the Drakengard franchise.
The game is described as a table-top RPG video game built of cards. A short teaser was revealed on Twitter, but it is light on details other than the title and the creators involved.
While it’s called a table-top RPG, it’s still apparently a video game.
Open your mind and let your story unfold.
From the creative minds of YOKO TARO, Yosuke Saito, Keiichi Okabe and Kimihiko Fujisaka, #VoiceOfCards The Isle Dragon Roars is a unique table-top RPG video game built of cards.

Last month, Yoko Taro confirmed he was the creative director of a brand-new Square Enix game, during a press conference for Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. He didn’t say much about the game, besides saying his new project was, “difficult to explain,” and a “somewhat unusual game.” Seems on brand.
Taro is also the director of Nier Reincarnation, a mobile game that takes place in the same universe as the mainline Nier games. At the time of its release, Square Enix said it is important to make mobile games the same quality as console games to get the Western audience to accept them.
