In Dragon Quest Heroes II you’ll take the role of either Lazarel or Theresa, dedicated students of battle. You’ll form a party with a number of other unique heroes, before setting out across an interconnected landscape of varied environments to do battle with a “dark shadow” that threatens a 1,000-year peace. You can choose from a number of vocations (that is, classes), including warrior, priest, thief and more, each with a unique role in controlling the battlefield.

Challenges include “difficult boss raids” and “dimensional dungeons”, but you can tackle it all alongside up to three other friends in online co-op.

The Explorer’s Edition includes the following 15 bonus weapons:

  • Archdemon Arcs
  • Drackerang
  • Gem Slime Sword
  • Golem Gauntlets
  • Goodybag Abacus
  • Great Sabreclaws
  • Imp’s Fork
  • Night Club
  • Plat o’ One Tails
  • Robo-Bow
  • Robo-Razor
  • Royal Flush
  • Shadowblade
  • Slime Knight’s Shield
  • Slime Stack Stick
