Following its appearance in magazines this week, Square Enix has released the first official media and screenshots for its upcoming action RPG sequel Dragon Quest Heroes II.
Once again developed in collaboration with Koei Tecmo, Dragon Quest Heroes II will feature multiplayer for the first time. Square Enix will be releasing the game’s first trailer during a broadcast called “Dragon Quest Heroes: The Live” on February 24th at 15:00 local time.
Dragon Quest Heroes II focuses on the story of seven kingdoms that have seen continued peace over a long period. However, one day that balance tips and war breaks out. The events seem to be following an ominous prophecy passed down from ages past…
Razel – who is studying at the military academy in Orenka – and Tereshia – who comes to Orenka wanting to visit Razel following the battle between their homeland of Gywall and Orenka – get caught up in the giant battle that engulfs the world.
