DRAGON QUEST HEROES PC Game [Best Price]
In DRAGON QUEST HEROES: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below, the protagonists must rise up against seemingly insurmountable odds, facing off against swarms of enemies and gigantic monsters in an exhilarating action game. Filled with characters and monsters designed by world-renowned artist Akira Toriyama, DRAGON QUEST HEROES: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below will be available on PC in beautiful HD graphics.
When a dark shockwave sweeps through the city of Arba, the monsters that once lived peacefully alongside the people are driven into a frenzied rage. As either the hero Luceus or the heroine Aurora, the player joins forces with a cast of fan favorites from previous DRAGON QUEST titles, such as Alena, Bianca and Yangus, to bring the rampaging hordes of monsters to their senses and restore order to the kingdom.
This is an action RPG that sees you and a team of up to three others—all of whom you are free to switch to at any time—battering their way through hundreds of monster enemies. In every single level. You do this by hitting one attack or another, more powerful one, before building up your tension meter and using it to unleash an all-powerful coup-de-grace attack. There’s the ability to summon support units—they can defend an area, launch a one-off attack, heal your party and so on. That’s about it.
Dragon Quest Heroes opens on the kingdom of Arba during a festival. It’s a world where monsters and humans live together in peace; in the opening movie, a giant golem sweetly hands a little girl balloons to her delight. The first glimpse of Arba is immediately endearing, but a world of peace is not a great setup for a game about killing legions of monsters, so inevitably things go wrong. The monsters inexplicably turn on humans, and more bad guys begin pouring out of portals opening around the city.
You begin the game by naming the two main characters — one male, one female — and choosing who you’d prefer to control by default. These two are members of the city guard. They team up with the king, Doric, on a journey to discover just what the hell is going on before the enraged monsters rip apart the roots of Yggdrasil (the titular World Tree).
The journey around the world is mostly an excuse to fight monsters in a variety of locales and track down new party members who are actually characters from previous Dragon Quest games. Heroes such as Dragon Quest 8’s Jessica and Yangus and Dragon Quest 5’s Bianca add a healthy dose of nostalgia for players who are well-versed in the series.
