Dragon Quest Heroes II will be making its way to North America on April 25 and Europe on April 28, Square Enix announced today. Shedding its PS3 and Vita versions, the game will only be available on PlayStation 4 when it arrives overseas.

Set in an all-new world with new heroes and story, Dragon Quest Heroes II is an action-RPG that sends players on a grand adventure to restore order to a once peaceful world, with thrilling battles of epic proportions along the way. With the addition of multiplayer functionality, players can form a party of up to four online to conquer swarms of enemies and defeat gigantic monsters.

Dragon Quest Heroes II sets up a cast of unique characters each with their own special moves and abilities from the classic Dragon Quest series. Similar to the first game, they’ll be joined by two original heroes – cousins Lazarel and Teresa. Square Enix has provided an announcement trailer (above) and some new screenshots from the game, which we’ve included below.
