For those of you new to Dragon Quest – don’t fret! Dragon Quest Heroes II is set in its own world, with brand new characters and does not assume you have any knowledge of any previous Dragon Quest game, so you can go into it as a brand new, standalone game and have lots of fun! It’s a hack-and-slash, field roaming action RPG, and even includes a 4 player co-op multiplayer mode!
You can pick from a huge selection of characters – some are from older Dragon Quest games (but again, don’t worry if you haven’t played any other Dragon Quest game – you’ll be introduced to the characters!) Change your vocation, which changes your fighting style, and even control some of the famous Dragon Quest monsters designed by veteran illustrator Akira Toriyama!
Here’s a very quick outline of the story in Dragon Quest Heroes II:
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!
