Dragon Quest Heroes II is an action game with numerous RPG elements. Similarly to its predecessor, it is a spin-off installment of the popular Dragon Quest series, and although it maintains a similar atmosphere, it offers several new solutions. The PS4, PC and etc. version was developed by Square Enix.

Plot

The plot references to the events of the previous installment of the subseries but is not directly linked to the games in the core series. The heroes on which the action is focused were created solely for the purposes of the new story. While exploring the world, though, we will encounter numerous familiar faces that remind us what universe we are in.

Gameplay

Dragon Quest Heroes II continues the tradition initiated by its predecessor and is a classical slasher that puts an emphasis on fast-paced action, spectacular blows, and breathtaking stunts. We have to constantly fight hordes of enemies and finish them off with the available arsenal. Apart from ordinary attacks, we can also block and use special abilities. Fighting average enemies, even in great numbers, does not require us to use any advanced tactics, but the boss fights force us to apply more complicated strategies if we want to succeed. Despite the combat focus, the title offers an extensive plot and many dialogues.

The PS4, PC and etc. version of Dragon Quest Heroes II is characterized by strongly cartoonish visual style typical of manga and anime. The available characters, designed by the legendary Akira Toriyama, were transferred to the third dimension, though. Thanks to the console's hardware, it was possible to use advanced lighting and particle effects in the game.
