Square Enix has been having some fantastic luck as of late with some astounding games discharged in the recent months, from Final Fantasy XV, re-arrival of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 Remix to Nier Automata, they have conveyed a charming arrangement of games that focus on a wide scope of crowd. Mythical serpent Quest Heroes 2 is another fresh out of the plastic new activity RPG from Square Enix that proceeds with this pattern.

Legends 2 is a continuation as found in its name anyway it is likewise a progressively engaged iterative experience that wrinkles out a portion of the imperfections of its ancestor while focusing on giving a story that is engaging enough individually. Regardless of having a lot of characters to browse in Dragon Quest Heroes 2, they all have their very own unmistakable character and abilities which makes every one of them stand apart alone. Also the way that the game highlights a portion of the fan most loved characters from the past mainline Dragon Quest games.

The game provides the option to play either as a male or a female character which are interchanged as cousins in the game’s story. The choice of gender here has no effect on the story and since we can already change characters during combat, it doesn’t serve much purpose aside from keeping the focus on the particular character during cutscenes.

The story tackles a theme of all out war between the seven main Kingdoms in Dragon Quest Heroes 2. The two main characters are visiting a neighboring Kingdom when their own Kingdom suddenly starts an attack that comes as a surprise to them. Determined to find out more about the attack and why the peace between both Kingdoms is threatened, they set out on a journey that takes them through a variety of locations while meeting an interesting cast of characters. The story isn’t exactly worthy of praise but it is the pacing that keeps it from becoming a chore. During your quest, you will be able to visit multiple towns while the better part of your time will be spent in the semi-open areas in between them, which is usually where the majority of the combat takes place.

hen it comes to the hack-and-slash genre – particularly games that feature combat with a huge number of enemies, often called Musou – can get repetitive easily, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 doesn’t feel like one because of the skills and progression system that it employs along with the ability to switch characters mid-battle. The character switching mechanic is relatively painless and requires the press of a single button in order to switch out the characters. Each character comes with their own set of skills and attacks that flesh out the combat system. Some are useful for clearing a huge mob while others serve better as heavy hitters.
