Yoko Taro and friends are developing Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, a Square Enix-published “RPG built of cards”.
It’s fun writing anything even tangentially involving Yoko Taro, because we get to roll out this brilliant gif once more:

This was, erm, Taro expressing his excitement at a t-shirt for Nier: Automata, if we remember correctly. Anyway. Now we’ve got the obligatory “Yoko Taro acting weird” bit out of the way, the news.
Today, Square Enix has announced that Yoko Taro as the creative director – along with executive director, Yosuke Saito (Nier series), music director, Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard 3, Nier series), and character designer, Kimihiko Fujisaka (Drakengard series) – are developing a new RPG.
That RPG is called Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars (hmm, catchy!) and is card-based. The press release refers to it as an “RPG built of cards” and… that’s it. That’s basically all we know thus far, apart from this 25-second teaser trailer:
Yoko Taro has taken to Twitter to answer what are (presumably) some frequently asked questions:
And I answer for your question.
-This is not Drakengard series.
-This is not social game.
Thank you. 🙂 https://t.co/oamBTJ5sU3

There we are. You now know as much about Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars as we do.
Still, it’s an exciting lineup of developers, isn’t it?
