In Dokapon Kingdom, players are pit against one another in hopes of winning the crown and the hand of the lovely Princess Penny. Atlus claims that this cut-throat experience can tear friendships apart. Such was the case when members of the Atlus team came in to play with us; gauntlets were thrown and battles were fought. Dokapon Kingdom has some similarities to games like Mario Party, where the world is set up like a giant board game and players take turns to advance and earn money. However, the role-playing game elements let you level, collect items, upgrade equipment, and customize your character as you advance through the story mode.
