Dragon Quest Builders coming to Europe + North America - Announcement Trailer

Some good news today. It has been confirmed by Square Enix that Dragon Quest Builders is heading to Europe and North America later this year.

The game was released back in February in Japan. Dragon Quest Builders is a sandbox adventure game that tasks players with rebuilding Alefgard using various blocks, as it has been destroyed by the Dragonlord.

"Media speculation from when the game was first announced was that Dragon Quest Builders would be a Dragon Quest version of Minecraft. Early screenshots show the player building a camp out of blocks; the camp gains levels based on how much it has been built up. Materials that are gatherable by the player include "rock, wood, fruit, plantlife, slime ooze, and more". Monsters such as Slime and Dragon from the original Dragon Quest appear in the game. The player has a health bar, and must eat food over time, similar to Minecraft."

It has been said that players will receive new requests from citizens wanting a place to call their own. You will also build new tools and equipment from materials that you have collected and you will be able to use them to construct new items. There will be monsters in the game too, so it's not only about building stuff!

Dragon Quest Builders will be available in Europe and North America in October for PlayStation 4. It will also be a digital only release on PS Vita. You can see the announcement trailer below.
