Watch 8 minutes of Dragon Quest Heroes II gameplay By Erren Van Duine on April 22, 2016 at 3:27 PM

The folks over at V-Jump have posted a lengthy video today featuring eight minutes of Dragon Quest Heroes II gameplay.

The video focuses on several new character additions to the Tecmo Koei-developed action RPG sequel including Maribel, Gabo, Torneko, Meena, Carver and Angelo from previous Dragon Quest series games.

Additionally, Square Enix updated the game’s official site with a chart comparing the differences between the three versions of the game. While content is similar across each platform, the PS4 version boasts the highest visual fidelity at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.

Dragon Quest Heroes II is set to launch in Japan for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on May 27th. There’s currently no word on a Western release.

  • Wonder if since we arent allowed to have 11 can we get an open world DQ game?

  • Yuntu

    Why aren`t we allowed to 11? Would be surprising if it doesn`t come over tbh. Or did ya mean 10?

  • DQ11 is, from what fans are saying, a slim chance of coming outta JPN for some reason. Maybe the Enix side of Square sees it as a lost cause and only wanna gamble with shorter straight forward dynasty warrior-ish style DQs like Heroes 1 and 2.

  • Yuntu

    I doubt that, those fans are stupid. We got any of the latest DQ mainline games outside of 10 (which was an MMO). DQ11 has a good chance especially considering how sucessful DQ8 was back then, I think it would give them a fair profit.

  • If we do get 11 I’ll get it in a heart beat. I only tried Heroes because I wanted 11 so bad.

  • Yuntu

    Well Heroes did decent in the west and Heroes 2 looks way more like an RPG so it will probably do better over here (hope it comes over). I would say it would be stupid to not bring DQ11 in the west when you make the strange 3DS/PS4 combo, they don`t just put that much effort into it without planning to release it WW … atleast that`s what I`m thinking.

  • What more RPG stuff is confirmed for Heroes 2? I might get it if it has exploration, more chests and varied sidequests and towns. Leveling up is fine, and I love the battles, but sometimes you just wanna fine stuff.

  • Yuntu

    There will be a proper town, changeable classes/jobs (for the mainchars only, I believe?), proper areas to explore instead of those mission-like smaller areas in the first one, new characters and more variation in content.


  • Guess I’ll make my main 4 Angelo, Terry, Razel and alternate Jessica, Maya and Minea.
