Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 preorders open on GameStop, Nintendo confirmed as publisher

While there's still no official release date, GameStop has kicked off preorders for Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2. Something worth noting, the listing shows Nintendo as the publisher. Nintendo has been handling publishing duties for various Dragon Quest games in recent years, and I guess that trend is going to continue with Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2.

Never mind there being no official release date, I don't even think this has been officially confirmed for release outside of Japan yet, so this is big and awesome. I really enjoyed the demo and I'd definitely get this day one if it launched in English.

i would have absolutely bought this for switch, but the frame rate issues are just too much to get it for switch over ps4 for me.

The full game has less fps drops than the demo.

The demo didn't do the game justice. The full game has better frame rate. There also was an update last week that improved frame rate stability. Not quite PS4's 60fps, but more stable 30.

I'm so looking forward to this game.

I loved Dragon Heroes Quest on the PS4. I came very close to getting the Platinum in it, I was hooked. It does a very good job of being a hack'n'slash type of game while still keeping the Dragon Quest Theme and a JRPG feel to it.

Dragon Quest Heroes, Hyrule Warriors and ARSLAN are the only games I played from Omega Force (Dynasty Warriors series). So I might be different than others who possibly have fatigue from their style of games.

Dragon Quest Heroes II is very exciting to me because it allows co-op play, and that was the biggest thing I felt was missing from the original. I was planning on getting it for Playstation 4 (it comes out April 25th), but I think I'm going to wait for DQH I + II on Switch instead. I played the demo from the Japanese eShop, and I can tell the visuals and performance is worse than the original on PS4. That's a bit disappointing, but I'm kind of hoping that has to do with it being a port (possibly rushed). Besides the added functionality of mobile play, and the 2 for 1 bonus, I'm picking it up on Switch because I'm hoping there might be a sales goal Square-Enix needs to hit before bringing Dragon Quest X & XI to Switch in North America. Getting those 2 games, with added mobility would be incredible.

Good. I was a bit taken aback by the distinct non-Warriors feeling the demo gave, but it still feels like a great game!
