The Final Heroes Are out Questing for Dragons

With just over a week to go before its April 28 launch, Dragon Quest Heroes is back to introduce its final three heroes. As well as showing us a bit more of the previous, and returning heroes that are filling the roster.

Today we’re here to meet a brand new character to the franchise in the shape of Torneko Taloon. He’s a…rogue trader?! Using some rather eccentric weapons, like a fly swatter and a…trumpet?!? ‘Kaaaaaaaaay. Well, if there’s one thing to be said about the Dragon Quest franchise, it’s that it is far from dull.

Joining Tor-kun, and the rest of the heroes, are returning fan favourites, Alena and Kiryl. The spunky martial artists and her completely pointless bodyguard, who seems more interested in being kind of flustered and a little bit put out that the action is already over before he has a chance to do his job.

Being set out to protect someone who can deflect crossbow bolts with her face and punch volcano explosions out the ground tends to have that effect I suppose.
