Dragon Quest Heroes 2 Listed for PS4 at Best Buy With an April 25, 2017 Date

December 1, 2016Written by Jason Dunning


Released earlier this year in Japan to strong sales, it looks like Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is coming West in 2017.

According to a listing on Best Buy, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is releasing on April 25, 2017 for PlayStation 4 in North America. If it’s anything like Dragon Quest Builders, the PlayStation Vita version will be released digitally, while the PlayStation 3 version won’t come West.

Since this is a retailer listing, we’ll have to wait until Square Enix announces Dragon Quest Heroes 2 for official details. Considering that the PlayStation Showcase at PlayStation Experience is happening on Saturday, it could be a short wait.

Here’s the description for Dragon Quest Heroes 2:

Play Dragon Quest Heroes 2 in single-player mode, or invite three friends to join the journey in multiplayer mode.
