Dragon Quest Heroes I & II released alongside Nintendo Switch when the console launched in Japan back on March 3, 2017. This compilation of Dynasty Warriors-styled action games from Koei Tecmo, Omega Force, and Square Enix has been utterly MIA for a western release though. However, renewed hope for the games in the west has sprung from a listing found at Greek retailer The Console Club, which lists preorder of Dragon Quest Heroes I & II for Switch as an apparently western release.
The price of nearly 60 euros puts it in line with the cost of a typical western release, as opposed to the higher cost associated with importing from Japan. Additionally, The Console Club is reportedly the site that leaked the existence of Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, increasing the likelihood that this listing isn’t just a mistake. So essentially, if you’ve been patiently waiting for Koei Tecmo and Omega Force’s unique spin on Dragon Quest to come to Switch worldwide, there could be a reward on the way.
Meanwhile, the other day, Dragon Quest Heroes director Tomohiko Sho commented on the possibility of a third title in the series, essentially saying that he’s in favor of it, but it would need a great concept and Square Enix’s approval.
