Before the wild success of Pokémon, there was a little-known pocket creature game for the Nintendo that received considerably less fanfare and much critical acclaim. Dragon Warrior: Monsters is an updated version of the innovative 1989 game Dragon Warrior. As with Pokémon, you must find and capture creatures, and you can trade them with your friends.
While 151 pocket monsters wander through the various Pokémon games, Dragon Warrior: Monsters features over 200 monsters to collect in this single title. When you have captured them, you can breed and train your monsters to develop special skills. With the optional game link cable, you can battle or breed with other monsters captured by a friend.
