The daughter of a fisherman mayor born in a fishing village. Perhaps because she was spoiled, she is high handedly outspoken and says all that she has to say. But even so, she is a girl with a kind heart at her core. Her strong curiosity throws her head first into another world’s war.
Maribel specialises in boomerang attacks and spells to attack from a long distance, but also has special skills that allow her to fight in close range. This high handed young lady makes full use of her insults and slaps in battle.
A young boy with athletic ability that surpasses that of an ordinary person. He inherited the power of the “Legendary White Wolf” that saved a certain town and always travels with his wolf. He has a very sharp intuition, and can sense surrounding disasters and nearby enemies, as well as where to find tasty food.
Gabo can unleash powerful special skills in combination with his wolf partner. Gabo himself has astounding physical ability, and his sharp claw attacks and fire breathing make up his distinctive traits.
Party Skills and Combos
In Dragon Quest Heroes II there are new ways to strengthen your party via “Party Skills” and “Party Combos”. Since Party Skills can be learned by increasing the proficiency of specific weapon types, it will increase party’s overall attribute values and prove effective in battle. The effect extends to the entire party if someone learns a Party Skill, so you should try and have all members of your party learn some.
Party Combos can be unleashed during battle, and see members of your party replace the character you’re controlling to let out a series of consecutive special skills, one after the other. This comes in handy when you want to continue attacking the enemy with characters that are at a distance, who will appear before them immediately.
Also included in this information drop were “Field Missions” which can be initiated on the battlefield, these are events such as random travellers being attacked or a horde of monsters and completing them will grant the player bonus experience.
Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End is due for release on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita on May 27th in Japan. Stay tuned to the Vita Lounge for more information as it comes.
