SQUARE ENIX released a new infographic for the upcoming DRAGON QUEST HEROES: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below, giving DRAGON QUEST players old and new an in-depth look at the main characters, their background and even weapon of choice.
The title introduces four new protagonists to the franchise including Luceus, Aurora, Doric and Isla who reside in the majestic city of Arba. As the city is overrun by monsters, the group will recruit iconic characters from previous DRAGON QUEST games to ward off the threat including Maya (DRAGON QUEST IV: Chapters of the Chosen), Nera (DRAGON QUEST V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride) and Yangus (DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King) among many other familiar faces known to fans of the franchise.
A dark cloud has fallen over the city of Arba, driving the once peaceful monsters into a frenzied rage. As either the hero, Luceus, or the heroine, Aurora, the player joins forces with an iconic cast from previous DRAGON QUEST titles to bring the rampaging hordes of monsters to their senses and restore order to the kingdom.
