A listing for Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2 on the Nintendo Switch has been sighted. And even though these two games have already had localizations on the PC and PS4 versions, the news of a Switch port has many more gamers excited. Plenty of other Dragon Quest tiles have come to Switch before, like Dragon Quest XI, so that’s a good sign.
Various elements like co-op mode, cross-platform play, and unique multiplayer battles all helped add to fan excitement. The game mixes all of the iconic characters from the franchise into a new form. Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2 on the Switch also introduces new bosses and locales for fans to overcome. Check it out in the trailer below.
The Console Club, a Greek video games retailer, has put up a listing for the Switch version of Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2. The pre-order is priced at €59.90. The version of the game also includes all previously released DLC from the other platforms. The price alone has led some fans to speculate as to the veracity of these listings. Part of the problem is that this price point is pretty close to parity with Western price points for new games on Switch and other platforms. What this means is that there’s potential for the listings to be based on a full localization rather than an imported copy.
Neither Omega Force nor Square Enix have confirmed the listings as accurate as of yet, leaving the prospect of these Switch ports a bit in the dark. In the meantime, Square Enix isn’t sitting idle though. The publisher just announced new details for the PC port of Dragon Quest Builders 2, including a new demo.
Speculation is also rampant about the potential for a sequel in Dragon Quest Heroes 3 although no plans have been announced as of yet.
