Dragon Quest Heroes II will be making its way to North America next spring. Publisher Square Enix today announced that the sequel to last year’s action-RPG, which was developed by Omega Force, will be seeing its western release on April 25.

Dragon Quest Heroes II introduces online multiplayer functionality, allowing up to four players to party up and take on waves of enemies and challenging boss creatures.

To celebrate today’s announcement, Square Enix released a new trailer for the title showcasing its introduction sequence. You can find the trailer below:

Here’s a rundown of the game’s story courtesy of the publisher:

“Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a long and terrible war. When the war finally ended, the people of the world made a solemn pact never to fight again. The world was divided into seven realms and peace reigned for a thousand years.

One day, cousins and fellow knights-in-training Lazarel and Teresa reunite in the Kingdom of Harba, far from their Dunisian home. Little do they suspect that the Dunisian army is about to invade, with their old friend Prince Cesar at the helm.

The long-kept peace is broken and the world descends into chaos. With the aid of High King’s envoy the cousins must travel to Accordia for a meeting with the Supreme Sovereign of the Seven Realms to find a solution and bring back peace to the world!”

Dragon Quest Heroes II will be releasing exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
