Monsters Game missing from game list


Recommended Posts

I was doing a video Video Link on what I thought was the lost i-mode adapter game "Dragon Quest Monsters I" that was for I-mode compatible cell phones that allowed you to get Aibou/Ayebou and Zomas Devil on Dragon Quest Monsters 1+2 for the PS1.

Even in the video I was confused based on conflicting information and dates listed in a few articles and on this site wondering if they were 2 different games. So it seems my

hunch was right, the game I was reviewing wasn't the I-mode compatible game, it was a game created at a later time. 

This game here was the one I thought MIGHT be the mode compatible game Game Link since int he dropdown menu it is called "DQ Monsters 1 MOB" which is what the I-mode game is also called.

The dates just didn't make sense to me, why would they create a mobile game to get monsters for a game 4 years after the PS1 game was made?

So I posted my video on reddit and asked for more information. A guy found a link to the game that was actually made for the I-mode and  I could not find it on this site.

Here is the link the Good Samaritan sent me Link to the missing game

 

Looking at the screenshots listed on this site versus the one from Samaritans link you can see they're 2 different games. The one from Samaritans link was released in 2002

Cool, thanks for the clarification, I wondered if I had something messed up with those games when I made those sections, but it was hard to find any good info, especially with the differences in cell phones at the time.

The official site that I got that info from is now gone http://www.square-enix.co.jp/mobile/game/dqmm/

But Archive.org has a copy of it https://web.archive.org/web/20171007220623/http://www.square-enix.co.jp/mobile/game/dqmm/

And the first archive of that site is in 2006 and the site's title is ドラゴンクエスト モンスターズ MOBILE which google translates to Doragonkuesuto monsutāzu MOBILE by google, so I took it as Dragon Quest Monsters Mobile

I probably misinterpreted info that site since I cannot read Japanese and rely on google translate for information.

Can anyone clarify the info from that archived site?

On the drop down menu of woodus when you scroll over "All games" and go to "Monsters" it is listed as DQ Monsters 1 (MOB). The 2006 game is officially named "Dragon Quest Monsters Mobile" without a 1 or I in the title.

 

The 2002 mobile phone game made by EZweb was called one of two names: Dragon Quest Monsters I (MOB) and "Dragon Quest Monsters J"

 

Upon looking at the link you posted it seems EZweb made both games, one with Gameboy Color graphics (the 2002 game) and one for newer phones in 2006 with gameboy color graphics.

The 2002 version you could connect to a PS1 and trade monsters to the remakes of 1 and 2 and was the only way to get Ayebou/Aibou and Zoma's Devil on the remakes. The 2006 version appears to have not connected to any game system and was pure mobile.

 

So my two things were that

1) The dropdown menu name for the 2006 mobile game is mislabeled with the name of the 2002 game

 

2) the 2002 mobile game "Dragon Quest Monsters I" or "Dragon Quest Monsters J" (whichever you choose to call it) does not appear to have a page on woodus, I could be wrong but I haven't found it.

 

It looks like the 2006 game was last updated in 2017

Thats all the information I have for now. 

 

Attached are images from the 2002 game for reference

(By the way I hope you don't read my messages in a jerky tone, Im not, just informing that's all :) You do an amazing job on this site I come to it often)

Looks clean to me. The release date for it was 2002/01/28. Upon reading through some translated text though I have come to a state of confusion, since you're the wikipedia of Dragon Quest Monsters for us Americans I have to ask you a few things.

The translated article Image mentions a "Dragon Quest Monsters EZ" which I would highly assume is the 2002 version you just added.

Then below that a game called "Dragon Quest Monsters J" was mentioned as well as an add-on app called "Mysterious Tower App"

 

Were Dragon Quest Monsters EZ and Dragon Quest Monsters J the same game? We know that EZ was made by EZweb services, yet J and Mysterious Tower App claims to have been distributed by a company called "J-Sky".

 

I highlighted the important parts in question below

I read that on the page as well the other day, but it didn't make any sense to me, and I really don't have an answer unfortunately. Those were such obscure games when I was trying to find info on them it was quite difficult :)

If you could get into the servers there is a possibility. Youd be able to get the legendary Aibou and Zomas Devil on the PS1 remakes of Dragon Quest Monsters 1+2. I cant find cheat codes for them on epsxe so I cant get them 😭
