The Dragon Quest series has hit something of a revival lately, and the trend will continue with Dragon Quest Heroes II, which will be launching in North America on April 25, 2017.
Heroes II is an action-RPG, set in an all-new world, one whose peace and stability is being destroyed by malicious forces. While the formula seems fairly cut and dry, the addition of a four player multiplayer system promises a new level of potential.
The new game promises to introduce players to two new heroes into the Dragon Quest lore, as well as bringing back familiar faces that connect the series as a whole.
According to the press release-
“Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a long and terrible war. When the war finally ended, the people of the world made a solemn pact never to fight again. The world was divided into seven realms and peace reigned for a thousand years.
One day, cousins and fellow knights-in-training Lazarel and Teresa reunite in the Kingdom of Harba, far from their Dunisian home. Little do they suspect that the Dunisian army is about to invade, with their old friend Prince Cesar at the helm.
The long-kept peace is broken and the world descends into chaos. With the aid of High King’s envoy the cousins must travel to Accordia for a meeting with the Supreme Sovereign of the Seven Realms to find a solution and bring back peace to the world!”
Square Enix has made the opening cinematic available as well, which you can see below.
Dragon Quest Heroes II is slated to release on Playstation 4 on April 25, 2017.
