Dragon Quest Rivals, a free-to-play game which is currently available on Switch, PC and mobile devices in Japan, is set to receive a pretty major update next month.

Square Enix has confirmed that August will bring with it a brand new single-player mode as well as a name change. Going forward, the app will be called Dragon Quest Rivals Ace.

You can see the announcement in the new trailer above; Gematsu reports that the new single-player mode is called 'Solo Battle Adventure' and that it will coincide with the release of new card pack, 'Heroes of Triumphal Return'.

Thankfully, the app's name change won't affect players' progression or game data, so you'll be able to carry on where you left off when the rebranding takes place. If you're wondering how you can get your hands on games from the Japanese Switch eShop, feel free to follow the steps in our guide on the topic.
