Fans of the Dragon Quest series got some cool news out of Square Enix this morning regarding the new addition to the franchise, which is due out this October. A Day One Edition and a Slime Collector’s Edition of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below will be available for those quick enough to reserve one on the Square Enix website.
In addition to that announcement, a brand new trailer entitled “Begin a New Quest” was also released, introducing the main characters, Slimes, Monsters and familiar Dragon Quest faces players can expect to see in the game when it launches later this year.
The Day One Edition will feature five free Slime-themed in-game equipment items for those who pre-order, with those items being the Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Squishing Rod and Gungenir.
The Slime Collector’s Edition will come housed in a special, collectible treasure chest-style box and will include various Slime-themed items including a Slime plush doll and exclusive downloadable content to help players navigate the Dragon Quest franchise’s first full-scale action RPG.
The only place that you will be able to cop the Slime Collector’s Edition will be exclusively from the Square Enix Online Store, and will include:
· Collectible Treasure Chest box
· Slime Plushie, Slime Key Chain and Slime Lanyard
· A collection of over ten in-game items: equipment for characters such as a Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Squishing Rod, Gungenir, Slime-on-a-Stick, Gooreat Sword, Splat O’Nine Tails as well as the additional map, Gold-Digger’s map and Happy map.
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below will be available on 16th October 2015. As a special thank you for pre-ordering the Day One Edition or the Collector’s Edition from the Square Enix Store, customers will also receive a Dragon Quest III Hero outfit.
