Friday January 25,2013 : POKER ADDITION TO KONAMI'S DRAGON COLLECTION
 
Latest addition will liven up the social card games scene in Japan
 
Konami's Dragon Collection of social card games, which has generated an enthusiastic Japanese and US following of over 7 million users since it was launched two years ago, has a new game with a poker aim.
 
The somewhat quaintly titled Dracolle and Poker combines the card battling elements typical of the Dragon Collection with the familiar structure of poker rules. Users collect and upgrade cards to create their own custom card deck, and then wield that deck in poker-based card showdowns.
 
Card battles are a test of strategy as well as luck – each user’s deck setup determines what flushes, full houses and other powerful hands they can use to add bonus damage and special status effects to their attacks. Having the tactical judgment to respond to any situation is the key to claiming victory.
 
The games come on both iOS and Android mobile platforms.
