Konami’s Dragon Collection card game has officially landed on iOS devices in the US via the GREE platform.
The CCG is actually one of the biggest and most popular social games in Japan and has over 7 million registered users. It’s arrival on the US App Store is the property’s first foray outside of Japan and is just the start as an Android version is also planned.
Dragon Collection is a card game that has players embarking on a fantastical journey in pursuit of the legendary Dragon Cards. The title will feature all new monsters designed exclusively for the North American version of the game, while including the core gameplay modes in the original title, such as Quest (players explore the Dragon World), Battle (players battle villains and rival players), Card Pack (players compete for a random prize), and Enhance (players strengthen by merging favorite monsters). With a well balanced design that allows both old and new gamers to pick up and play, Dragon Collection also incorporates in-game events and campaigns that evolve based on user’s requests and opinions.
As far as the social aspect of the game goes, players can play each other competitively or ‘bridge’ to each other during play to forge alliances. Additionally, social butterflies will feel right at home here as the more ‘friends’ you have, the more advantages you’ll get for matches.
You’ll also amass points by cheering on your pals and teaming to assist others against more powerful enemies. The game has taken home several awards including one from the Consumer Entertainment Supplier’s Association in the Japan Games Awards 2011 Future Division.

Oh dear. I really didn't need to hear about this.
ROFL – right there with you. I read about that and my immediate thought was: Because I need more CCG style games to sink my time into.
