Dragon Quest Heroes II Gameplay
Dragon Quest Heroes II mixes the hack-and-slash combat of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series of video games with the characters, monsters, universe, and lore from Square Enix‘s Dragon Quest series. Additionally, the game is heavier on the RPG elements than most of Omega Force’s other titles. Meanwhile, players can explore the land and move from one town to the next, while also initiating dungeon-like battle stages. Furthermore, treasure boxes and ingredients can be found by players while exploring. Weather also plays a factor and rain will result in a curse ailment being inflicted on the players during a battle.
While players are able to dash to wherever they please. However, some areas of the map will be inaccessible until the player has proceeded with the main story. Also, fast travel to previously visited areas of the map can be used through unlocking “Invitation Stones” while playing the main story.
Additionally, two-player co-op is now available for the main story by selecting the “Assist” option in the main battle menu. Furthermore, up to four players can play together for multiplayer missions. Players can work together to find more map pieces or defeat difficult bosses. Also, players can work together to complete the new “Time Labyrinth”, though by choice. However, It is unlocked by finding labyrinth map pieces scattered throughout the main story.
Although online chat is not available, players can select common stock phrases to communicate. Ressurection of fallen party members can be done either by “Leaves of the World Tree” or raise their alive companions’ health and Tension by cheering for them.
