Capturing and training monsters has been a core part of the Dragon Quest series since Dragon Quest V and players will be able to fight alongside Slime Knights in Dragon Quest Heroes too.
Whenever you defeat a monster there is a chance you’ll get a Monster Coin. Monster coins can be used to summon monsters that fight with you. Players can have up to two computer controlled monster allies. Famitsu shared more screenshots of the Monster Coin system.
Dragon Quest Heroes introduces two new main characters, Act and Mar. Both fighters are armed with a one handed sword & shield and use Giga Slash as a deathblow.
