Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime Set for 3DS
Square Enix takes the Dragon Quest offshoot series to the seas for new installment.
Square Enix opened an official site today for a new 3DS entry in the Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime series, which is known in Japan as Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest.
The new game is titled Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3: Daikaizoku to Shippodan. The site lists the game as an action adventure with a multiplayer mode that supports two to four players, 3D support, and compatibility with Wi-Fi and Street Pass.
A few additional details have leaked out from this week's Jump. Players will apparently be able to head out to sea, build their own ships, and engage in ship-to-ship battles. This would be fitting for the "Kaizoku" part of the name, which means "pirate."
(Update 16:12 -- Square Enix has issued a press release confirming that the game will have Slimes riding out on the great seas in ships and engaging in 3D battles with enemy pirate ships.)
A release is set for Winter 2011.
