SQUARE ENIX announced that the latest standalone addition to the unique Voice of Cards card-based RPG franchise, Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden, is now available digitally for the Nintendo Switch system, PlayStation 4 (PS4) console and PC via Steam. Following the release of Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars last year, fans can now enjoy a second turn-based adventure in the Voice of Cards franchise told entirely through the medium of cards.
Players will escape to an illustrated world presented in the medium of cards with the Voice of Cards series’ second release, brought to life once again by the creative team behind the beloved NieR and Drakengard series, including Creative Director, YOKO TARO (Drakengard series, NieR series), Music Director, Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard 3, NieR series) and Character Designer, Kimihiko Fujisaka (Drakengard series). Set on a remote chain of islands that have been protected by the maidens for generations, this brand-new adventure will have players follow the protagonist and Laty, a girl who failed to become a maiden, in a touching stand-alone tale to save the people of the island as they face the threat of destruction.
For fans of YOKO TARO, items based on NieR:Automata are also available for purchase individually or as a bundle. The bundle includes the Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden game and several themed DLC items that unlock in-game content, such as:
- Puppet’s Costume – An additional design for Barren, Laty and Lac’s outfits mirroring the style of NieR:Automata
- YoRHa Emblem – Replaces the design on the backs of the cards with the YoRHa emblem
