Dragon Quest Heroes II gets an in-depth new trailer


Updated Monster Coin system revealed

We got a quick look at Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End a couple months back, but the newest trailer is much more comprehensive, giving each character new and old ample screen time and explaining all of the various mechanics.

It seems to be much the same experience as the first entry, gameplay-wise, just with new characters, new enemies, and new equipment. And I'm certainly not complaining, Dragon Quest Heroes was excellent and I look forward to more of the same.

All of the new characters look like a fun time. I'll probably be rolling with the female protagonist again, this time the pink-haired girl, Tereshia. But I can't wait to try everyone else out too.

The biggest difference I can glean from the trailer is a new type of Monster Coin, which allows characters to transform into a monster that the player can control. I can definitely get behind that idea! Recruiting monsters was already one of my favorite things to do in the first game, and now I can become them? Amazing!

Dragon Quest Heroes II is set to release in Japan on May 27 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
