The rumors were true! Square Enix has officially revealed the third entry in the card and tabletop-centric RPG series, Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden. This new standalone title launches digitally on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on September 13th.

Check what the cards have in store in the announcement trailer below:

Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden adds a new ability to the series’ card system: monster trapping! Capturing a monster card allows you to use their skills in the heat of battle. Monsters play a key role in the story as well.

Follow a new tale set in a world where a millennia of hatred rages between monsters and humans, and a girl who loses her home swears revenge on monsters. She joins hands with a mysterious boy as they set out into the unknown and unravel the fate of this broken world.
