Square Enix are releasing Dragon Quest Heroes for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and Square Enix recently shared more on the official website about the differences between the two versions of the game.
As far as game content goes, both versions will have the exact same content, so you won’t have to worry about any exclusives in one or the other. However, it’s more in the extra functions and features that one will see the differences.
In terms of functions, the PlayStation 4 version will allow you to share images and videos, and also broadcast your gameplay, along with some Share Play that will allow you to have others play up until the early stages of the Dragon fight. The PS4 version will also allow for Remote Play via the PlayStation Vita as well.
Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 version won’t have any of those features, and will run at 30fps, compared to the 60fps the PlayStation 4 version will have, which might actually be noticeable when taking on hundreds of Slimes and Drackies.
Regarding the graphics part of things, characters, backgrounds, and effects will display more detailed on the PlayStation 4. Again, during moments where monsters show up in big armies, the PS4 version will display many of them, while the PlayStation 3 version will show less; however, it won’t change the difficulty or how it’s played.
Additionally, Square Enix have announced that PlayStation Plus subscribers in Japan will be able to get a special Secret Slime weapon Dragon Quest IV heroine Maya can use in the game. The PS4 version also includes a 15 day PlayStation Plus trial subscription as a bonus.
Dragon Quest Heroes is slated for release in Japan on February 26, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
