Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden tells the story of a young boy, ready to do anything to save an island from the disastrous fate that awaits him. Protected for generations by a group of young guardians, the island seems destined for a sad fate: that of ruin and destruction.. To help him in his quest, the hero will be accompanied by Laty: she is a young girl who failed to become a guardian.
The direct sequel to the first?
On the gameplay side, The Forsaken Maiden seems to be getting closer to its eponymous predecessor The Isle Dragon Roars. The player controls a pawn that he moves on a checkerboard of cards, each representing something: the characters, the scenery or even the objects. The story is told by the narrator (Show Hayami for the VO / Mark Atherlay for the VA) and it’s a real fantastic ballad that awaits the players. Nevertheless, we can expect small novelties on the combat side: if this second game seems to retain the classic codes of a turn-based role-playing game, the trailer evokes a duo system with a guardian and his companion.
Finally, it is worth noting that Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden is not the sequel to The Isle Dragon Roars and is therefore accessible”new and old“. Released on October 28 on Switch, PS4 and PC, The Isle Dragon Roars seduced by its committed artistic direction and thanks to its way of telling its story. Its gameplay, although very classic, works well even if some editorial staff pointed out the glaring lack of challenge throughout the game. Same treatment for The Forsaken Maiden? Answer on February 17 with the release of the game on PC, Nintendo Switch and PS4.
