This, only with a lot more monsters

It seems like an eternity since we had a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation platform, but that's all changing next year — in Japan, at least.

Announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, Dragon Quest Heroes is a collaboration between Square Enix and Omega Force — the developer behind the Warriors games. In that sense, it's a bit like Nintendo's upcoming Hyrule Warriors, except in Japan, Dragon Quest titles have to be released on a weekend so that the country doesn't suddenly grind to a halt. Take a look at the embedded trailer, and plead with us for a Western release in the comments section below.
