    Heroes Draw Near. Command? (Hero Social Thread)

    Nearly a month later and I'm still amazed by what a turnaround of interest Dragon Quest is getting. For years and years I'd be met with "Eh, not interested" when suggesting it and now so many people are taking a genuine interest in the series. It's so good to see. I've got a ton of Dragon Quest...

    The hero of Dragon Quest III, Erdrick, joins the battle!

    One of the most nostalgic games of all time for me... I hope you enjoy your adventure through this surprisingly massive (for the time) game!

    Moveset speculation

    I doubt it's fair. Given that Luminary hits Marth and MK in the cinematic trailer with a forward-face aerial swipe, I think it's safe to say Hero's fair will be a pretty standard vertical arc slash. Which is good, because vertical arcing fairs are almost always really good.

    DQI Hero with Erdrick's Sword & Shield DQVI Hero with Zenithian Sword & Shield Female Erdrick with Erdrick's Sword & Shield Female Solo (forget her name) with Zenithian Sword & Shield DQII Hero is a no because he can't use magic, and as much as I like him, DQV Hero is a no because he's...

    Social Social Thread - Boi-oi-oing Yeah!

    I'm still slightly annoyed Elma never made it. I still think she should've been the second-to-last DLC character in 4...

    Heroes Draw Near. Command? (Hero Social Thread)

    I was surprised to see them added so quickly. Warchamp7 on the ball, even made a Luminary wallpaper (though no Erdrick, sadly) Also, I gotta love how Hero's icon on my mains list displays as Captain Falcon's 64 icon, lol

    This is me with Erdrick. It's like, that is my childhood reimagined in HD right there. I expect people who played B-K as kids feel the same.

    Hopefully in a few years Dragon Quest will be among the real big-hitter RPGs in the west.

    Your Smash Newcomer wants through the ages?

    Melee was my first game, and I was too young to think much about who else could've been in the game. I haven't really had too many specific desires over the years, I'm mostly just content with what we get, but there have been a handful I've actively gunned for. Brawl Isaac Smash 4 Palutena...

    Classic Route ideas

    I saw a pretty good idea of having their Classic route be Stamina matches, and their maximum Stamina increases after each match to simulate leveling up. Either way, I think it's fair to say their Classic route will have a distinct RPG slant to it, with Rathalos being the final boss.

    Heroes Draw Near. Command? (Hero Social Thread)

    It does my heart good to see people starting to appreciate Dragon Quest more. Hero is easily my all-time favourite newcomer, and the fact they're getting more people into this series makes it all the better!

    The hero of Dragon Quest III, Erdrick, joins the battle!

    I am so happy he really made it. It's been ages since I last posted in this topic but I never stopped hoping the rumours were true. And I really couldn't be happier with how the Heroes turned out! My new main for sure. It's also great to see people all over the internet now willing and...

    Who's your favourite of the Heroes?

    Always gotta be Erdrick. Dragon Quest III was a huge part of my childhood, and he's stood out as the ideal 'Hero' design to me since I was 7.

    Official Smash Ultimate Discussion

    Can't believe it's literally a matter of hours, now. What a wait it's been! Very first thing I'll do is poke around the Options menu, then get my controls and nametag set up. Then I'll alternate Vs matches and Classic mode to unlock characters.
