Dragon Quest Heroes II (ドラゴンクエストヒーローズII 双子の王と予言の終わり, Doragon Kuesuto Hīrōzu II Futago no Oh to Yogen no Owari, subtitle translated as "Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End") is a derivative sequel to Dragon Quest Heroes that has a new world setting and narrative. It was first revealed online through its early official website launch on April 1, 2015. It is one of the projects that celebrates Dragon Quest's thirtieth anniversary.

The same creators for the first game are returning for this title.

This game was awarded the gold prize in the PlayStation Awards 2016.

Buy the game new to receive serial codes for an Energy Ball item, the first Dragon Quest protagonist costumes for Razel and Teresia, and a Healix statue recipe for Dragon Quest Builders. Purchase the limited Square-Enix e-STORE edition to receive a thirtieth anniversary Dragon Quest monster coin set. Various bonuses are being offered at different store outlets.


The story takes place in a peaceful land of seven kingdoms. Suddenly, as though enchanted by an ancient prophecy, the kingdoms wage war. The heroes from different kingdoms band together to restore peace to their torn continent.


World exploration has been changed to resemble the typical Dragon Quest experience. Players can move their party to visit towns, wander the world map and initiate battle stages (similar to dungeons). Seamless random monster encounters may break up the pace between locations. Special ingredients and treasure boxes can be discovered across the world map. Weather can fluctuate and affect the party's status. Rainy days inflicts a curse ailment on the party during battle.

Characters can now dash to wherever they please, but certain areas will be blocked until the player proceeds with the main story. As the players proceed with the main story, they can unlock "Invitation Stones" on the world map. These monuments allow the party to instantly warp to previously visited locations.

Zelbion acts as the new main town. One major change from the previous game's features is the class change feature for the main protagonists. Switching classes changes equipment types and potential skills for each protagonist. Known classes include martial artist, mage, monk, thief and warrior. The weapons merchant can teach random weapon skills to the protagonist, depending on their proficiency with each weapon type. Individual weapons and outfits have all been changed to only provide aesthetic changes. Accessories can still be strengthened to alter stats.

Battle stages are mandatory for progressing the main story and behave like battle areas from the previous title. Parties can still be changed by talking to Patty in her bar. Two player co-op is now available for the main story by selecting the "Assist" option in the main battle menu.

Alternatively, players can work together to complete the new "Time Labyrinth", a series of multiplayer exclusive stages aiming to appeal to longtime Dragon Quest fans. It is unlocked by finding labyrinth map pieces scattered throughout the main story. Talk to Erinn in town inns to set up online matching or send invites.

Up to four players can play together for multiplayer missions. Online chat is not available, but players can select common stock phrases to communicate. Fallen party members can either be resurrected by "Leaves of the World Tree" or raise their alive companions' health and Tension by cheering for them. Players can work together to find more map pieces or defeat difficult bosses. Metal Slimes have a higher chance of appearing in these missions.

Cross-platform play options and save data sharing are present. Having save data from the previous title grants Luceus and Aurora costumes for this game's protagonists. Dragon Quest Builders save data grants "Builders Wooden Hammer" for the protagonists' use. Downloadable content so far includes costumes, weapons, and multiplayer options. DLC can be accessed by talking to Manemane in town.
