Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Trees Woe and the Blight Below

Square Enix recently released a new trailer to their upcoming game with the rhyming name, Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below. Many different characters from Dragon Quest‘s glorious past join together to fight hordes of monsters, including Yangus from Dragon Quest VIII and Bianca from Dragon Quest V. This marks yet another title by developer Omega Force that brings together many different characters from a storied franchise and combines them with action-heavy Warriors-style gameplay–they of course also developed Hyrule Warriors, which did the same with The Legend of Zelda. The trailer highlights these characters, brought together to protect the World Tree from being destroyed by an onslaught of evil monsters. Even a little Heal Slime joins the party! Check out the trailer, “The Heroes You Know,” below:

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below releases on October 13 in North America and October 16 in Europe, exclusively for PlayStation 4. A collector’s edition is available exclusively on the Square Enix Online Store as well as the European equivalent, and a Day One Edition with Slime Weapon DLC is also available on Amazon and at other retailers.
