07.11.15 - 11:57 PM

San Diego Comic Con is already rounding out its third day, and those of us who couldn't get tickets to the pop culture mecca are silently cursing the god-awful ticketing process. Well now we have one more reason to be mad, as Square Enix is demoing both Dragon Quest Heroes and the PC version of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD at the Con. Dragon Quest Heroes was recently playable on the E3 showroom floor but is now open to the "public" at SDCC. Meanwhile the PC version of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD sports improved graphics, better battle and camera controls, and Steam community features.
