Square Enix have lifted the veil surrounding four more new playable characters for its upcoming Dragon Quest Heroes II. Featured in two all-new character trailers, Maribel, Ruff, Carver, and Terry join the growing ranks of combatants who are set to do battle when the game releases less than a month from now.
Size matters not, and though they're still young, Maribel and Ruff know how to inflict a stiff beating on their enemies. Affectionately known as Little Miss Long-Range, the boomerang-toting Maribel can keep entire groups of enemies effortlessly in check, while Ruff, The Boy Who Ride Wolf, simply charges headfirst into the fray astride his canine companion. Far from a one-trick pony, Ruff can also summon a whirlwind of sheep to trample his opponents as his special skill.
Dubbed "Ten Tons of Trouble," Carver is a well-muscled brawler who prefers to take his opponents down the old-fashioned way. Using his Knuckle Sandwich special skill, he is able to damage foes from a distance as well. Standing in contrast to his oversized, mohawked pugilistic pal, Terry, The Storming Swordsman, is a virtuoso with a blade. In addition to his uncanny speed with the weapon, he can unleash his devastating Lightning Storm special skill to fry enemies to a crisp.
Dragon Quest Heroes II will see a Steam release on PC on April 25, 2017 worldwide, with the North American PlayStation 4 version launching the same day. European and PAL territories will get the PlayStation 4 version onApril 28, 2017.
