Dragon Quest Heroes has a stupid subtitle in the West

The Western release of Dragon Quest Heroes has been given the most absurd subtitle.


Square Enix announced a while back that Dragon Quest Heroes will come to North America and Europe this year. Unlike in Japan, it will launch only on PlayStation 4.

Earlier today, the Japanese publisher revealed what the game's logo will look like in the west, and the subtitle it will carry.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and The Blight Below was the one it settled on. DualShockers says it's similar to the Japanese subtitle "Yamiryuu to Sekaiju no Shiro".

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and The Blight Below does not yet have a firm release date.
