Dragon Quest Heroes will bring back heroes and monsters from the series, but it will also have some other features that are familiar to fans. Some of these include Luida’s Bar and the Alchemy Pot. The latest issue of V Jump shares more detao;s. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
While a camp was previously shown as a base for the player to prepare for combat, there’s a new base that will be like some sort of airship, called the “Batoshie” . In addition to you being able to fly around on it, it also has a weapon shop, a “Defense Orb” shop, a Luida’s Bar, and Alchemy Pot.
The weapon shop will sell weapons and shields, which will also change the characters’ appearances, according to the weapon or shield they use. The Defense Orb shop is where you can purchase “Defense Orbs,” which can be used to increase your defense and such. There will also be Defense Orbs with various other special effects.
Similar to other games in the Dragon Quest series, Luida’s Bar will be a place where you can recruit allies. You’ll be able to do the same and freely put a party together at the bar in Dragon Quest Heroes.
The Alchemy Pot appeared in Dragon Quest VIII, and also in Dragon Quest IX as the “Krak Pot”. In Dragon Quest Heroes, you’ll need to get a recipe, then find its ingredients to make accessories. You can also enhance your items but throwing in two of the same kind inside the pot.
Dragon Quest Heroes will release in Japan on February 26, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
