Just in time to celebrate the series’ 30th anniversary, Square Enix has revealed Western release plans for Dragon Quest Builders. The “building adventure” game will arrive in North America and Europe this October on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita – with the latter out digital only.
Unlike traditional Dragon Quest games, Builders focuses on sandbox gameplay combined with a big story that lets players interact with monsters and other iconic characters. The player is tasked with rebuilding Alefgard – a realm destroyed by the ruler of the monsters, the Dragonlord.
The game comes with a host of features including the ability to build a variety of unique tools from materials you gather, and rebuild towns and cities using a simple control scheme. To hear what we thought about our time with the Japanese version a few months back, check out our impressions here.
