It's that Dynasty Warriors hack 'n' slash you love, mixed with the oddball antics of Dragon Quest. Get ready for its release by checking out the full Dragon Quest heroes II PC system requirements.

Dragon Quest Heroes II Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-9370 4.4 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory

Nothing screams sequel quite like having an identical set of system requirements to the last game. That's a tiny white lie though, because Dragon Quest Heroes II is twice as large an installation as its predecessor, clocking in at 40GB. Aside from this, the Dragon Quest Heroes II system requirements are exactly as they were for the original Dragon Quest Heroes.

That tells us a couple of things. Firstly, Dragon Quest Heroes II will look visually identical to Dragon Quest Heroes. Koei Tecmo has created the game on the same Warriors game engine, and DQH2 is again launching on PlayStation 3. Secondly, Dragon Quest Heroes ran comfortably on most PCs when it launched two years ago. Now it's 2017 and those same of system requirements for Dragon Quest Heroes 2 are very low indeed.

Even the recommended specs for DQ: Heroes 2, enough to max the game out, are very low-end by today's standards. You're looking at 5-year-old graphics cards and (admittedly pretty decent) quad-core processors, along with just 4GB RAM.
