Dragon Quest Heroes II is a hack-and-slash action RPG which combines the world and characters of Dragon Quest with combat mechanics from Dynasty Warriors. Players will set out on a new adventure to protect the Seven Realms, battling hordes of monsters and exploring diverse and expansive environments. The playstyle is said to be more customizable than in the first installment thanks to the ability to change vocations (Warrior, Priest, Mage, and so on). The game supports online co-op for up to 4 players.
Dragon Quest Heroes II is developed by Omega Force and published by Square Enix. The Western release is limited to PlayStation 4 and Steam platforms.
