Publisher Square Enix has official announced that Dragon Quest Heroes 2 will be out in North America on April 25 and Europe April 28 next year exclusively on PlayStation 4.
In the sequel to the 2015 hack-and-slash roleplaying game was unveiled with a announcement trailer which you can check out below.
The description on the video describes a return to the hack-and-slash elements that the previous game had with the addition of 4 player cooperative play saying, “[Dragon Quest Heroes 2] sends players on a new adventure to restore order in a once peaceful world filled with hordes of monsters and battles of epic proportions. Up to 4 players can band together in cooperative multiplayer to conquer swarms of enemies and defeat challenging boss monsters. There is also a cast of many playable characters each with unique moves and abilities – including a host of familiar faces from the series and four brand new heroes that must team up to defeat an unknown threat looming over the Seven Realms!”
Dragon Quest Heroes is not the only spinoff related to the Dragon Quest IP from Square in the past few months. Dragon Quest Builders a Minecraft style construction game was released early this year and what this announcement means for that series going forward is unknown. Dragon Quest 11 was also announced last year as coming to PS4 and the Nintendo Switch but we haven’t had any announcements related to it since it’s announcement.
