During a livestream on Nico Nico, Square Enix showcased the first gameplay footage of the upcoming Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End, scheduled for release in Japan on may 27th for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
The gameplay will prove quite familiar to those who played the first Dragon Quest Heroes, but this time around we also get to see co-op gameplay in the last two videos, allowing four players to challenge enemies together. Story missions will be playable in co-op, on top of a dedicated dungeon made just for multiplayer.
We also learned that cross-play multiplayer and cross-save will be supported across PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Unfortunately there won’t be a cross-buy option.
During the livestream, Square Enix announced several bonuses, that you can see portrayed at the bottom of the post.
Those who will purchase the first print of the game will get costume for the two main characters reproducing the hero of the first Dragon Quest, in addition to a bonus item and to a recipe to build a statue in Dragon Quest Builders.
If you have a save game from the first Dragon Quest Heroes, you also get a costume reproducing its protagonists for both the hero and the heroine, while save data from Dragon Quest Builders will grant you the Builder’s Hammer weapon.
Lastly, a collector’s edition exclusive to Square Enix’s own store has been announced, including the game and special limited edition monster coins. It will cost 9,300 yen on PlayStation 4 and 8,300 yen on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.
As usual, remember that we’re looking at recordings from Nico Nico, so the quality is pretty terrible. Unfortunately, that’s all we get for now.
