According to the PR email I received. Dragon Quest Wars will be heading for DSiware next week. Check after the jump for details about the game.

In Dragon Quest Wars, players control a team of up to four monsters at a time. That team is selected from a larger group of six monsters so players will need to choose and plan their strategies carefully before each battle as each monster has a unique feature and ability! A player can win a battle either when all enemy units are defeated or if one of their units crosses into an enemy’s base.

Monster squads can be assembled from the following six recruits–er, monsters below. Players will need to learn their strengths and weaknesses in order to gain an advantage on the battlefield.
