Square Enix has confirmed it will launch Dragon Quest Heroes for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe later this year. The game will be available at retailers, via digital download, and the Square Enix Online Store.

Here’s a brief summary, via Square Enix:

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 installment 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 will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS3 in Japan tomorrow. The game will be PS4-exclusive in the west.
