Made in collaboration with Omega Force - the masters of the of 1 VS 1000000 formula, this title marks the continuation of a growing trend where famous Japanese video game publishers allow their treasured franchises to undergo a Dynasty Warriors makeover - a good sign for all gamers! (Zelda Musou)
And while not much has been revealed yet aside from gorgeous pre-rendered CG animations from the Sony pre-TGS reveal and recent Niko Niko streams, what has been stated is making this title one to look out for, especially if you're a fan of Dragon Quest.
The story revolves around 4 Heroes and their quest to protect the Kingdom of Elsarze: Acht - Captain of the Royal Guards and the classic DraQue Male protagonist, Mehr - the female counterpart to Acht with quick rapier attacks, Dirk - a King who confronts threats with massive physical strength, and Julietta - Mage extraordinaire with the whole DraQue magic repertoire up her sleeves.
Once a peaceful place where monsters and mankind co-existed in harmony, an unforeseen event has caused the monsters to attack in droves, and these heroes must band together in the face of such adversity, Musou style!
As with all Musou style games, the sheer number of foes on-screen has always been an impressive thing; in Dragon Quest Heroes, enemies come in the form of the classic DQ bestiary, with Drakees, Golems, Skeletons, Mages, and SLIMES.
There are also famous boss characters such as the titular Dragon, the cyclops Gigantes, and other bosses from previous DQ games like Marquis de Leon aka King Leo and even the dreaded Baramos! As such, each boss is done to scale, and will have their special moves intact.
Omega Force takes respect to the source material even further, as it has been revealed that players will be able to select previous heroes and fan favorites from previous titles as well; extra playable characters known at this time are Bianca, Nera, Jessica, Yangus, Terry, Alena, Kiryl, and Meena!
Of course, all the art is based on Akira Toriyama's signature style, and the music will be based on the complex scores of series staple Kōichi Sugiyama. From what we've seen so far, this is one title that has always needed to happen!

been playing for a while,
so far its fun, the music brings back memories. i actually like this better then sangoku musou. all the enemies are cute!
The game is very fun. Tecmo Koei and Square have done an amazing service to both fans of the genre and dragon quest. if you do not have an issue with the language barrier, then go ahead and give it a try.
great game, the sound and game play brings back old school game play. worth the price! but make sure you understand japanese first as this package is Japanese language.
Dragon Quest + RPG + musou hack'n'slash gameplay. All these in a single game on sale. Nuff said.
