Square Enix has officially announced the western release of Dragon Quest Heroes on the PlayStation 4, and RPG and musou lovers around the world should be super excited.
Square Enix has such a weird and tenuous stance when it comes to the localization of properties. With Dragon Quest in particular, they seem quick to bring some games abroad while other obvious choices lay dormant for years on end. Ron Duwell even asked that I specifically mention how he’s still patiently waiting for Dragon Quest VII to release on western 3DS units. There, Ron, are you happy?
I know he’s happy about this news.
Dragon Quest Heroes is hitting Japan very soon. It’s simply been slated with a 2015 release date for western audiences. Square Enix describes this massive RPG brawler as follows.
In DRAGON QUEST HEROES, players must rise up against insurmountable odds, challenging swarms of enemies and conquering gigantic monsters. DRAGON QUEST HEROES comes to the PlayStation®4 system in beautiful high-definition graphics, filled with characters and monsters designed by world-renowned artist Akira Toriyama.
Both Yuji Horii, director and creator of DRAGON QUEST, and Koichi Sugiyama, the composer closely tied to the series since its first instalment and creator of countless memorable musical masterpieces, are closely involved in bringing this title to life. Furthermore, ω-Force (Omega Force) from KOEI TECMO GAMES – the team that has created numerous popular action game series – is also taking part in its development.
DRAGON QUEST HEROES is a title not only for DRAGON QUEST series fans, but also for gamers of all interests to enjoy.
Dragon Quest Heroes will hit the PlayStation 4 later this year. It will sell for $59.99. Are you excited?
