I was so focused in bringing you nice people some gameplay footage of Dragon Quest Heroes: Long Subtitle that I wasn’t paying attention to the health bar of the objective I was protecting. I failed, but I failed for you.

From Omega Force, the developer behind Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U comes another slick and polished licensed Dynasty Warriors variant that far outshines anything the original series has to offer. As much as I adore mindlessly slaughtering endless Asian historical figures, Omega Force really brings its A-game when working on other people’s intellectual property. Just look at this shiny thing.

Coming to the PlayStation 4 tomorrow, Dragon Quest Heroes: And Stuff tells the story of a world where monsters and humans exist in peaceeful harmony, until one day they don’t. It’s up to the player and a collection of beloved characters from a series I’m honestly not all that familiar with to save the day.

I’ve not played much Dragon Quest, to be honest. I love Akira Toriyama’s character designs in an action game, but not so much in a straight-up role-playing game (see: Blue Dragon).

Perhaps this Dragon Quest action game will change my mind, once I stop talking to you folks and start paying attention to the action. We shall see.
