Dragon Quest Heroes comes out in North America on October 13th, 2015. First announced at a pre-TGS press conference last year, the collaborative title between Square Enix and Koei Tecmo, now subtitled The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below, is now available for pre-order on the Square Enix Online Store in both a Day One and Slime Collector’s Edition. Here’s what you get with each.

Dragon Quest Slime Collector's Edition

Slime Collector’s Edition ($99.99)

  • Slime Plushie, Slime Key Chain and Slime Lanyard.
  • Helpful Slime-themed downloadable content for characters to equip including a Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Goopid’s Bow, Squishing Rod, Gungenir, Slime-on-a-Stick, Gooreat Sword and Splat O’Nine Tails
  • Bonus quest items, including the Gold-digger’s Map and Happy Map

Day One Edition ($59.99)

  • Helpful Slime-themed downloadable content for characters to equip including: Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Squishing Rod and Gungenir

When a dark shockwave sweeps through the city of Arba, the monsters that once lived alongside the people in peace are driven into a frenzied rage. As either the hero, Luceus, or the heroine, Aurora, the player joins forces with a cast of iconic cast from previous DRAGON QUEST titles, such as Alena, Bianca and Yangus, to bring the rampaging hordes of monsters to their senses and to restore order to the kingdom.

Like several recent Square Enix collector’s editions, the Slime Collector’s Edition is only available through the publisher’s own online store, but as a bonus they are offering an exclusive pre-order skin inspired by Dragon Quest III.

Curiously, a PlayStation 3 version which was announced in 2014 and has actually been released in Japan will not made it to the US as announced on the PlayStation Blog.

So there’s an exclusive for PlayStation this Fall. What do you guys think?

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
