Dragon Quest Heroes is headed west to PS4 this year

Dragon Quest Heroes will arrive this year on European and North American PlayStation 4 consoles, Square Enix announced today.

Designed by Chrono Trigger and Dragon Quest artist Akira Toriyama, the $59.99 action role-playing game is in development at Omega Force. The Tecmo Koei studio is perhaps best known for its work in the Dynasty Warriors series, from which Dragon Quest Heroes takes its inspiration. When it arrives this year, Dragon Quest Heroes will include a cast of returning characters from the Dragon Quest series.

Square Enix and Tecmo Koei revealed the game last September at the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia press conference, where they also unveiled a Metal Slime edition PS4. In Asia, Dragon Quest Heroes is also available on PlayStation 3.
