Initially thought to be a cruel April Fool’s joke, Dragon Quest Heroes II is real and it’s coming to the PS Vita.

Square Enix launched a promotional website early on April 1st inviting fans to kill as many slimes as possible. After an estimated 10 million slimes killed, the news of the sequel to the popular game was revealed, and to the joy of fans everywhere, it does include a Vita release.

Playstation Blog Japan and Gemastu has also announced the production staff:

  • General Director: Yuji Horii
  • Character Design: Akira Toriyama
  • Music: Koichi Sugiyama
  • Developer: Omega Force (Koei Tecmo)
  • Publisher: Square Enix

Square Enix has not announced a release for Dragon Quest Heroes II and there is still no word of localization.

    Well this certainly was unexpected!

    Last time I checked, it was only for ps3 and ps4.
    I’m pretty sure it would still be like that if it wasn’t for Koei Tecmo.

    Awesome. I sure hope it comes West. Obviously, this is Tecmo Koei’s doing, as they actually support our favorite handheld. Thanks, Tecmo. Squeenix: you can go f yourself in the corner.
