The Steam page is now live, showing a December 3 release and offering some details about the PC version. Square Enix seems to have dropped its long-winded subtitle--The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below--in favor of the simpler Dragon Quest Heroes: Slime Edition.

Slime Edition is priced at $60, though if you preorder prior to launch you can save 10 percent, getting it for $54. Included for that price is the same game released on PS4, as well as 13 DLC items (two maps and 11 weapons).
