Hack of Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Cobi's Journey


This hack is essentially DWM2 NG+ for those that have played this game many times in the past and would love a new challenge. Changes have been made to the monster encounters throughout the story to provide much more variety and difficulty. Very few monsters need to be bred or found in random keys. Enemy regions have been redesigned to encourage exploration and family groupings to improve memory of their habitats.

Many aspects have been made more convenient to facilitate grinding for the dramatic jumps in difficulty. This includes selling prices, shop merchandise, treasure contents, skills, breeding options, exp requirements and lots of post-game fun. Full details of the change can be found in the readme or the forum page:

If you enjoy a challenging Pokemon-like experience you should give it a try!

If you already have a completed save file this can offer great post-game grinding and loot.

Use Lunar IPS to patch.

A Retooling That Really Adds Some New Flavor!

Reviewed By: dragonhiss4 on 28 Sep 2019

I’ve been playing this game (well, the Tara’s Adventure version) since I was five years old, revisiting it every few years and rebreeding the entire monster library ten times over. Needless to say, I’ve memorized where every monster can be found, what to use where… The game is still fun to go back to, but the challenge of the initial playthrough or two is gone… This hack is just the modification I needed to breathe some new life into the game. I was so surprised when I saw the starting monster had been changed from a Slime to a Gizmo (though, if possible, it would be nice if Slash’s overworld sprite beforehand was changed to reflect such a change). The difficulty of the game is higher from the get-go, and with familiar encounters and breeding results changed, I was forced to work with what I had… Just like in those first playthroughs of the original. Props to the creator! I strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a fresher take while we’re still waiting for the 3DS translation to be completed.
