Today Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest Heroes II will hit the western shelves for PC (via Steam) on April 25th in North America and April 28th in Europe. This comes in addition to the previously announced PS4 release.

On top of that, we learn that the game will get a day one “Explorer’s Edition,” offering 15 pieces of downloadable content including the Slime Knight’s Shield, Great Sabreclaws, Golem Gauntlets and more. On top of that, a reversible cover will also be available.

Here is the full list of items included in the Explorer’s Edition, which is currently available for pre-order on the Square Enix store for $59.99.

  • Archdemon Arcs
  • Drackerang
  • Gem Slime Sword
  • Golem Gauntlets
  • Goodybag Abacus
  • Great Sabreclaws
  • Imp’s Fork
  • Night Club
  • Plat o’ One Tails
  • Robo-Bow
  • Robo-Razor
  • Royal Flush
  • Shadowblade
  • Slime Knight’s Shield
  • Slime Stack Stick

Those who will pre-order on the PlayStation Store will also get an exclusive PS4 theme, a  costume from the first Dragon Quest Heroes, and the Healix the Hero recipe for Dragon Quest Builders.

On top of the announcement, we also get a new trailer and a batch of screenshots, that you can enjoy below.

Dragon Quest Heroes II was released in Japan back in 2016 for PS4, PS Vita and PS3. Quite evidently, Square Enix didn’t deem worth it to localize the PS3 and PS Vita versions in the west. The game is also being released for Nintendo Switch in compilation with the first title, but no official mention of a western release for that has been made, for the moment.
