Dragon Quest Builders 2

Yesterday, Square Enix announced a sequel to Dragon Quest Builders during the Dragon Quest Summer Festival 2017.

New features to Dragon Quest Builders 2 include:

  • slopes
  • diving underwater
  • increase in number of blocks to stack
  • add water to high places, creating waterfalls
  • a glider to descend from higher areas
  • four-player multiplayer

Watch below for a gameplay trailer:

Square Enix also mentioned the key phrase “young Malroth,” which just so happens to be the final boss in Dragon Quest II.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. No release date has been given as of yet, but we will keep you posted when that changes.

    And here I have yet to play the first one (then again, I only have a PS4 since a week, so until now it was impossible anyway). All the more reason to do it soon-ish.

    With the first one being based on on the first Dragon Quest game (using its bad end, no less), it’s not surprising that the second one is taking on DQII. And it already makes me hope that there’ll be a third one based on DQIII.

  • Dragon Quest Builders was a fantastic game. Hope this one lives up to the first game. They’re increasing the build limit which was one of my main problems with the first one, so things are looking great so far.
