Square Enix has released a new story trailer for Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below.
In Dragon Quest Heroes, players can join forces with franchise favorite characters, including Dragon Quest IV‘s Alena and Dragon Quest VIII‘s Yangus, and take on hordes of monsters. Each of the game’s 12 playable characters has unique abilities and play diferently from each other. Kiryl’s lance, for example, keeps monsters at bay, while Nera’s magic bubbles blast monsters away. New characters, such as the two protagonists, King Doric, and scientist Isla, will also appear.
If you’re at PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend, you can try your hand at battling the Gigantes monster at the Square Enix booth. Players will be awarded a free slime fan and can visit the “Slime Wall” to squash and defeat slimes. (We’re guessing it’s similar to the promotion Sony ran in Japan.)
Here’s a rundown of Dragon Quest Heroes‘ story:
A dark cloud has fallen over the city of Arba, driving the once peaceful monsters into a frenzied rage. As either the hero, Luceus, or the heroine, Aurora, the player joins forces with an iconic cast from previous Dragon Quest titles to bring the rampaging hordes of monsters to their senses and restore order to the kingdom.
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below will launch for PlayStation 4 in North America on October 13 and in Europe on October 16.
