Dragon Quest is a series that doesn’t get nearly enough love from Pixel Judge.
Largely because it’s a traditionally console exclusive property, but that era is, it seems, coming to an end, with Dragon Quest Heroes II making its way to Steam April 25, a day after the international release for all other platforms. With that being less than a month away now, we can expect to see marketing kicking into high gear, and today we get a look at the characters, or at least, two of them, Maribel and Ruff.
Maribel, Little Miss Long Range, uses a boomerang to…you guessed it, engage enemies from long range. Whilst The Boy Who Rode Wolf…wants to eat a lot…and rides a wolf. They make quite a formidable duo, despite their young age, but are far from the only warriors to enter the fracas. Online play allows up to four players to take part simultaneously, making everything bigger and more explosive than ever before.
LONDON (23nd March 2017) – Ahead of the launch of the upcoming action-RPG DRAGON QUEST HEROES™II next month, Square Enix Ltd., today introduced two new heroes players can expect to encounter on their journey.
In the latest character trailer, see Maribel – “Little Miss-Long Range”, and Ruff – “The Boy Who Ride Wolf” demonstrate their unique moves and abilities as they band together with Teresa and Lazarel to conquer swarms of enemies and prevail in battles of epic proportions!
