Dokapon Kingdom: Connect Reviews
Dokapon Kingdom Connect is a very niche thing indeed. But it’s silly, wacky, colourful and charming. Everyone in the household can have a laugh with it, and putting aside the old school “cheating” AI, it’s mechanically sound. It’s no replacement for Boom Street/Fortune Street/Itadaki Street, but it’s not a bad substitute, and might be on high rotation on your Switch longer than you think.
The journey has just begun, and we've got a lot of Dokapon Kingdom ahead of us, but I'm incredibly excited to continue this adventure. Check back with us as Dokapon Kingdom (Kind Of) Monthly progresses to see more of our impressions on this legendary party board game.
I loved playing its predecessor back in the day and now that Dokapon Kingdom Connect is here, I'm thrilled that modern audiences can appreciate its wacky party RPG antics. Who knew that combining those genres could be this much fun?
Dokapon Kingdom: Connect is a really fun board game, different from other options on the market thanks to its RPG style and characters of all kinds and shapes. It has its flaws, mainly regarding the lack of more explanatory tutorials, small graphical glitches, lack of voices in Japanese, long games and questionable leveling of the computers. Still, it's a game worth investing in if you want a new game to play both online with faraway friends and just an activity to spend your weekends with your family and friends offline.
