Square Enix has released a new batch of screenshots of Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End. These screenshots show two of the game's main characters, Cesare and Orneze.
Cesare is the Prince of Gywall, and the childhood friend of protagonists Razel and Tereshia. While Cesare is older than the two, the trio gets along regardless of social standing. While Razel lost the opportunity to meet up after he left to study abroad at the military academy in Orenka, they finally reunite after four years during the war. However, their reunion came in an expected form.
Orenze is a warrior who serves the King of Zebion, the suzerain state that governs seven countries.
As the "red female warrior," Orneze's name is known across the world, and fights majestically alongside the royal families of each country. She is a "big sister"-type that guides the combat-inexperienced protagonists with accurate advice. However, despite her cheerful behavior, she holds a heavy determination at the bottom of her heart.
Along with these screenshots, Square Enix has also revealed new details about the classes. Only the two main characters are able to change classes. The Warrior class will be the only one available at the beggining, with players unlocking other classes as they progress through the story. Other classes include Martial Artist, Mage, Priest, and Thief.
One important thing about this system is that levels and skill points are different for each job, which means that everytime you change to a class you are using for the first time you will go back to level 1. The skills you earn and your actions in battle differ greatly depending on the class you are using, but getting the hang of all classes is adviced, as there are some skills that go beyond the class and increase the protagonist's attribute values.
Dragon Quest Heroes II tells the story of seven kingdoms that have seen continued peace over a long period. That peaceful balance suddenly crumbles one day, and war breaks out. It's as if the events are following an ominous prophecy handed down from ancient times. It's up to our heroes to stop the giant war involving seven countries.
Similar to last year's Dragon Quest Heroes, the main characters will be joined by several characters from other Dragon Quest titles, including Torneko (DQIV), Meena (DQIV), Alena (DQIV), Kiryl (DQIV), Maya (DQIV), Carver (DQVI), Terry (DQ VI), Maribel (DQVII), Gabo (DQVII), Jessica (DQVIII) and Angelo (DQVIII).
Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End releases on the 27th of May on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita in Japan. The game has yet to be officially announced for the West.
