Players can hang out with the familiar monsters of the DRAGO QUEST series, and raise their own powerful monsters by breeding and combining different monsters. Teams are then composed of the monsters thus created, and battled against enemy monsters. More than 300 types of monsters make an appearance, including super-giant monsters, with team battles scaled up accordingly. From Chance Encounter Communications, heated battles unfold in the form of wireless match-ups.
