Dragon Quest Heroes Collector’s Edition is a Treasure Chest Full of Slime

Dragon Quest Heroes, tagged with the unnecessarily long English subtitle The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below, is officially scheduled to launch in North America on October 13th.

The PlayStation 4 exclusive Hyrule Warriors style mash-up of Dragon Quest and Dynasty Warriors will be available in a $59.99 Day One Edition containing a pack of five DLC items, as well as a $99.99 “Slime Collector’s Edition” available to pre-order exclusively from the Square Enix Online Store. The collector’s edition comes with a Slime plushie, keychain, and lanyard, some DLC and bonus quest maps, and premium treasure chest packaging to store all of that slimy loot.

Slime Collector’s Edition:  ●Slime Plushie, Slime Key Chain and Slime Lanyard.  ●Helpful Slime-themed downloadable content for characters to equip including a Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Goopid’s Bow, Squishing Rod, Gungenir, Slime-on-a-Stick, Gooreat Sword and Splat O’Nine Tails  ●Bonus quest items, including the Gold-digger’s Map and Happy Map

Slime Collector’s Edition:
●Slime Plushie, Slime Key Chain and Slime Lanyard.
●Helpful Slime-themed downloadable content for characters to equip including a Slime Sword, Gooey Gloves, Goomerang, Goopid’s Bow, Squishing Rod, Gungenir, Slime-on-a-Stick, Gooreat Sword and Splat O’Nine Tails
●Bonus quest items, including the Gold-digger’s Map and Happy Map

It’s a good collector’s edition and all, but $100 seems a tad rich for the included content. I have to compare it to the LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector’s Edition I bought years ago, which came with a Sackboy plush, bookends, and loads more DLC, and was a whole twenty bucks cheaper. I love the treasure box and the Slime collectibles, but I wouldn’t ever consider buying this package for any more than $80.

But whatevs, I’ll happily pick up a standard edition copy come October.
