Rumor: Best Buy Listing Points to Western Release of Dragon Quest Heroes II Next Year

on December 1, 2016 12:22 PM

Dragon Quest fans have had much to look forward to this year and next with the release of titles such as Dragon Quest VII and VIII on 3DS and Dragon Quest Builders on PS4 and Vita, while it appears one more title may be coming out West for fans of the beloved RPG series.

A new listing that appeared on Best Buy today points to a possible Western release for Dragon Quest Heroes II, which originally released in Japan for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita in May 2016, and now appears to be heading for a Western release for PS4 on April 25, 2017 (though the date is potentially a placeholder from the retailer).

No specific announcement has been made yet by Square Enix, though with the listing coming so close to the upcoming broadcast of The Game Awards tonight and PlayStation Experience this weekend, it’s likely this could be one of the surprise announcements from those events that let slip a little too early.

Dragon Quest Heroes II currently appears to be coming to PS4 for a Western release next year, but stay tuned for official confirmation/news soon.
