PS4 Dragon Quest Heroes’ Collector’s Edition Comes in a Treasure Chest
The collector’s edition, pictured below, consists of several physical items themed around DQ’s classic Slime enemy–a plushie, keychain, and lanyard–as well as a Day One edition copy of the game itself. This all comes inside of a treasure box package.
Heroes’ Day One edition offers some bonus in-game items as part of the Slime Weapon set. You’ll receive the Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Squishing Rod, and Gungenir.
While the Day One edition will also be available elsewhere, the collector’s edition is available exclusively through Square Enix’s online store, where it’s priced at $ 100. That’s a $ 40 premium over the game itself, which costs $ 60.
Heroes–whose full title is the exceedingly lengthy Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below–was originally confirmed for North America back in February. That’s when the game was released in Japan, where it’s available on both PS3 and PS4, as opposed to the PS4-only release happening in North America.
The game was developed by Omega Force, Koei Tecmo’s studio best known for the Dynasty Warriors series. Much like last year’s Hyrule Warriors, Heroes is a Musou/Warriors-style game themed around a third-party IP, in this case the JRPG Dragon Quest series. You’ll be able to play as both new and returning characters, including Alena, (DQ IV) Bianca (DQ V), and Yangus (DQ VIII). You can see a new trailer above.
