Which of these Dragon Quest Heroes II characters should be on my team?

Ben was right. I don't know how anyone could play Dragon Quest Heroes and not come out the other side wanting to be best buds with Yangus. I'm hopeful he'll show up in the sequel, but for now, let's take a closer look at the recently confir...

This Dragon Quest Builders display was built with lots of blocks

Last year, Square Enix promoted Dragon Quest Heroes in Japan with a huge wall of poppable slimes at a metro station. It was the stuff of dreams. (For me, anyway, but then again I see strange things when I sleep.) A similar campaign is now u...

Dragon Quest Builders will not support PlayStation TV

When you pick up a game on Vita, it should inherently just be supported on the PS TV, right? Well that's not the case in a number of instances, and it's really starting to get confusing. For instance, just recently, Square Enix has confirme...

Stop Dragon Quest Heroes from talking out of your controller
