Rosa Woodland, Rao Wasteland, and more introduced.

Square Enix has released a new set of Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End information and screenshots, introducing the game’s fields and more of the facilities available in the castle town of Zebion.

Get the information below.

■ Various Fields

While we’ve already seen fields of meadows and deserts, there are truly different aspects about every region of this world. And with a change in environment comes a change in the types of monsters that inhabit it.

Rosa Woodland – The Dark Smoky Forest

Dragon Quest Heroes II

A thick forest covers the area around Kretia. The sun doesn’t shine in the backwoods, and poisonous mushrooms are spread throughout. Rarely, there are also things that become gigantic. Some of monsters that roam these woods take camouflage in the trees and shrubs.

Rao Wasteland – The Naked Land

Dragon Quest Heroes II

A harsh wasteland not suitable for human civilization, and is connected to the northern three countries of Monstrea. Its grounds are covered in lava and poisonous swamps, and giant crystals also stick out. Tough monsters adapted to the harsh environment roam these lands.

Amal Canyon – The Steep Mountain

Dragon Quest Heroes II

A steep mountain overlooking the clouds, as well as the border that separates Felnock and Kretia. Rocks rain down on the mountain’s narrow scaffolds, and it is said that there have been those who’ve lost their footing. Because of its high altitude, monsters that dwell in the sky often appear here.

Ihrim Snowfield – Where an Old Legend Sleeps in the Frozen Ground

Dragon Quest Heroes II

A land covered in snow and ice at the foot of the sacred mountain Regen. The ancient ruins spread throughout still hold their form even today. Tough monsters able to withstand the cold wander about protecting something.

■ Zebion Facilities

In the castle town of the suzerain state Zebion, which is the base of the heroes’ adventures, there are a number of facilities that will support players on their adventure. These include the “Church,” the “Orb Shop” to buy armor, the “Alchemy Pot” to enhance accessories, “Rikka’s Inn,” “Luida’s Bar,” as well as facilities like the “Quest Office,” “Weapon Shop,” and “Clearing House.” Additionally, there is a place where you can change your appearance, as well as a Medal King to exchange your “Small Medals.”

Orb Shop

At the Orb Shop, you can buy armor to increase your defense.

Alchemy Pot

At the Alchemy Pot, you can enhance your accessories with various materials.

Dragon Quest Heroes II

Appraise Unknown Weapons in the Weapon Shop

At the Weapon Shop, you can of course buy and sell weapons, but you can also “appraise” unknown weapons. By bringing in what you come across on your adventure, you can check what sort of weapon you’re dealing with. After an appraisal, unlike the weapons you buy at the shop, there is a number next to the name (+3 ,for example), it has a higher ability level, and it’s given a special ability that will aid in battle. In the event that you don’t receive a good appraisal on your weapon, you can “dismantle” it and return it to “pieces,” as well as “re-assemble” those pieces into a weapon.

Barter for and Obtain Materials in the Clearing House

Not only can you get accessories to enhance at the Alchemy Pot or materials necessary for Quests by defeating monsters or finding them on the field, you can also barter with the people of the city at the Clearing House. By exchanging a lot of one material, you’ll have the chance to get less of another material.

Fight More Fashionably by Changing Your Appearance

By talking to Float-o-copier in Zebion, you can change the protagonists’ costumes and the look of your allies’ weapons. The changes are solely appearance based, so since it has no affect on ability and performance, any of the changes you make won’t provide a disadvantage in battle.

Dragon Quest Heroes II

Medal King

At the Medal King you can exchange the “Small Medals” you’ve obtained from various places for valuable goods.

Dragon Quest Heroes II

Subjugation Report Office
