Here's another look at Dragon Quest Heroes from Tokyo Game Show

Dragon Quest is coming back to PlayStation platforms with the Omega Force-developed Dragon Quest Heroes, the Dynasty Warriors-like game Square Enix revealed in early September. At Tokyo Game Show, the developer offered a deeper look at the game that has players battling dozens of familiar Dragon Quest monsters at once.

Like the recently released Hyrule Warriors for Wii U, Dragon Quest Heroes is steeped in nostalgia and the type of hack and slash gameplay Omega Force is known for with Dynasty Warriors and Toukiden. Players will battle against scores of slimes, golems, dragons, drackys and giant cyclopses who, as shown in the gameplay demo above, aren't exactly aggressive.

Dragon Quest Heroes is slated to come to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 next year in Japan.
