Square Enix sets US release of Dragon Quest Heroes for October 13

Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest Heroes will be available for the PS4 on October 13. Although actually, the game’s full title is Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below. The rhyming makes it feel kind of poetic, but it is also long and a bit tongue-twisty.

Thankfully, the publisher also plans to release an extra large Collector’s Edition that’ll be big enough to handle that title. Available exclusively through the Square Enix Online Store, the Slime Collector’s Edition ($99.99) will include:

  • Slime Plushie, Slime Key Chain, and Slime Lanyard.
  • Helpful Slime-themed downloadable content for characters to equip including a Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Goopid’s Bow, Squishing Rod, Gungenir, Slime-On-A-Stick, Gooreat Sword, and Splat O’Nine Tails.
  • Bonus quest items including the Gold-Digger’s Map and the Happy Map.

If you’re uninterested in the physical extras, Square Enix will also release a special Day One Edition ($59.99) that only includes some of the in-game bonus items (Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Squishing Rod, and Gungenir).

Dragon Quest Heroes is in development at Omega Force and will be on hand at Square Enix’s E3 booth in a few weeks. Like Hyrule Warriors, the action RPG will bring together a variety of heroes from previous Dragon Quest titles in a crossover of epic proportions:

When a dark shockwave sweeps through the city of Arba, the monsters that once lived alongside the people in peace are driven into a frenzied rage. As either the hero, Luceus, or the heroine, Aurora, the player joins forces with a cast of iconic cast from previous Dragon Quest titles, such as Alena, Bianca and Yangus, to bring the rampaging hordes of monsters to their senses and to restore order to the kingdom.

Finally, a brand new trailer for Dragon Quest Heroes was released today. It’s been embedded at the top of the article.
