Two things you should probably know before drooling all over Dragon Quest Heroes , which will land in North America on October 13: 1. It’s not an old-school RPG, and 2. It’s not your standard Omega Force production (these are the guys that do the countless Dynasty Warriors titles, remember). This is a blend and while you might assume it therefore caters to nobody – it doesn’t have enough action and strategy for the DW followers and and not enough traditional charm for the JRPG lovers – that’d be an incorrect assumption. At least, I hope it’s incorrect. Based on what I’ve been reading, it seems those who adore Dragon Quest are in for a treat.

Firstly, as this game was designed for PlayStation 4, you can anticipate the best-looking DQ adventure yet. The character models are polished and refined and the number of enemies that explode on the screen at any given time should make the presentation glitter with effects. I’m hearing the frame rate remains steady, too. And yes, this is where the Dragon Quest lore and artwork really shines; Omega Force ahs worked hard to adapt to the legendary RPG’s style and theme. The game will boast bunches of familiar faces, so DQVIII lovers will be happy to see the likes of Jessica and Yangus. In general, it’s very colorful; certainly a lot more colorful than any Dynasty Warriors game I’ve ever played.
