Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime 3 official site opens with video and battle details
Square Enix has opened an official site for Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest 3, the new 3DS entry in the Dragon Quest offshoot that stars the series' Slime mascot.
Outside of the cute artwork of your favorite Dragon Quest foes, the chief attraction at the site is a video trailer which you'll find on the home page. It shows a brief bit of the game's sea-based battle component.
Sea-based battles are a new element for the 3DS sequel. When out on the seas, if you come into contact with an enemy pirate ship, you'll get into battle. Your goal is to destroy the enemy ship's engine.
The battle is shown on the top screen along with your remaining HP. On the bottom screen, you control your Slime and carry battle materials to the deck to reload your canons.
You can make your ship fire into angled shots and direct shots. Using both is the key to strategy.
Once you've knocked the enemy ship's HP down to zero, you board it by rope. You must then move down to the ship's engine room and take out the engine with one of your standard attack moves.
You're not alone in your fight. You have deckmates helping out with the battle. Additionally, some of the enemy sailors will defect to your side!
You can create a custom pirate ship using parts. You'll also face off against a variety of enemy ship types, some of which you can see here.
