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.
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!
