Import Review: Dragon Quest Heroes (Ps4)

Through the fire & the flames! 


Dragon Quest Heroes: The World's Tree & The Blight Below (breathe) is the new collaboration between Omega Force of Dynasty Warriors fame and the little known company Square Enix. Overseen by long time Yuji Horii, Omega Force are once again trying to capture the lightning in a bottle they had with the brilliant Hyrule Warriors only this time using JRPG juggernaut Dragon Quest.


How will the tried and tested Musou formula suit the intricate and often mysterious world of Dragon Quest?, Will it manage to strike a balance between action and adventure & finally will it bring in a new set of fans for both?
