Square Enix have released some new details regarding characters and the class system for Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End .
Cesare, the Prince of Gywall, is the childhood friend of protagonists Razel and Tereshia. While Cesare is older than the two, the trio gets along regardless of social standing. While Razel lost the opportunity to meet up after he left to study abroad at the military academy in Orenka, they finally reunite after four years during the war.
By preparing his great sword with both hands, Cesare can make use of a variey of attributes, including ice, fire and thunder. By unleashing attacks that correspond to the enemies weakness, you can fight advantageously in a variety of situations.
Orenze flies around the world at the command of King Zebion. As the “red female warrior,” Orneze’s name is known across the world, and fights majestically alongside the royal families of each country. She is a “big sister”-type that guides the combat-inexperienced protagonists with accurate advice. However, despite her cheerful behaviour, she holds a heavy determination at the bottom of her heart.
Orenze uses an axe to unleash powerful attacks. She specialises in breaking through the enemy front, and can mow down the surrounding enemies all at once while swinging, or let out an increased power attack with the power she builds up.
Square Enix also gave more information about the new class system for this game. The player will now be able to change between 5 different classes; Warrior, Martial Artist, Mage, Priest and Thief. Players will start in the Warrior class but will be able to change their character class as they progress through the game. Each class will level up independently as well as require players to earn skill points for each class separately.
The skills for your character will change dependant on the class selected, for example playing as the priest class will have skills more focussed on recovering your party. Weapons are also different for each class so you’ll be learning a diverse range of skills and combos for your characters.
Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End will be released later this year on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita on May 27th in Japan. There is no news yet on a western release though the first game came west some time after the Japanese release so fingers crossed. Stay tuned to The Vita Lounge for more news as it arrives.
