Dragon Quest Heroes II debuts spring 2016

Features a new multiplayer mode

Dragon Quest Heroes II is launching in Japan next spring, Square Enix just announced.

The publisher announced the new action title back in April, not long after the first game’s Japanese release topped charts with more than 594,000 copies during its opening weekend.

In addition to having a new story featuring a variety of familiar characters and monsters from the franchise, Square Enix says this entry will include a four-player multiplayer mode. 

Dragon Quest Heroes II is in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.

The original Dragon Quest Heroes is coming to North America and Europe this October.
