A remake of the cult classic Nintendo Wii party game/RPG makes its way to Nintendo Switch in the form of Dokapon Kingdom: Connect!
Connect boasts updated visuals and, as indicated by the name, online play!
“Everyone in Dokapon Kingdom loves money. One day in this peaceful land, monsters suddenly appeared and began attacking nearby towns. The economy collapsed, and people were at their lowest. Taxes were no longer being paid, of course. So that's when the King took action! He decided to gather the bravest warriors to rescue these towns so he can get paid! In exchange, the one who collects the most shall be rewarded with the Princess' hand in marriage and the throne. And thus, an adventure for money begins, where absolutely anything goes!”
Dokapon may not have been a sales monster on the Wii, but it was loved by all that experienced it and gained a cult following that is strong to this day. Hopefully with this Switch remake, even more will get to experience intense, multiple hour long games with their friends like its 2007 all over again.
The game has currently been confirmed for the US while we still wait for European confirmation, but given the previous title made its way over here it’s likely only a matter of time before we get a UK release date.
Now we just have to live in hope for a Boom Street HD re-release!
