News: Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker and a new release date for Dragon Quest Swords also revealed.



Square-Enix has announced a slew of new projects will be making it to American shores this year and in the future. All told, three new Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest spinoffs will be coming soon.

Already released in Japan, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker for the DS will bring its monster breeding adventure to America in the fall.

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for the PSP and Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings for the DS are both part of the "Ivalice Alliance", Final Fantasy titles that take place in the land of Ivalice. War of the Lions is a remake of the PSone classic and Revenant Wings is (surprise, surprise) a spinoff of Final Fantasy XII.

Square-Enix also revealed that Dragon Quest Swords: The
Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors for the Wii will not be released until 2008. A blow to gamers everywhere who have been waiting for a game that was originally announced for the Wii launch.

Storyline details on the three new titles can be found below.
