Its time to pick up your axe and pull up some flowers because Dragon Quest Builders 2 has just been revealed to be coming quite soon to the Switch in this mornings Nintendo Direct.
The evil Children of Hargon are determined to eradicate all creators and have outlawed the building, cooking, and creation of all things. In an attempt to spread their destructive dogma, the calamitous cult captures the builders of the world. All hope seems to be lost until you, a young apprentice builder, manage to escape from the clutches of evil.
After washing up on the shores of the deserted Isle of Awakening, you encounter the spirited Malroth, a mysterious youth with no memory of his past. With the help of your fearless new friend, you embark on a grand adventure to gather the skills required to become a full-fledged builder, but the road you build is paved with peril. Only you can defeat the Children of Hargon, uncover the secrets of Malroth’s past, and unravel the riddles of this mysterious land.
This exciting and fun loving sequel to Square Enix’s block-building, action adventure role-playing simulator Dragon Quest Builders, which released February of last year on Switch after previously being available on PS4, will continue your building dreams from the first game with a bunch of new features as well as online multiplayer for up to 4 people.
Included in these extra features are larger more grander structures, fast travel, including travel modes such as air, land and sea. Players will also now be able to farm and irrigate the land they build on in Dragon Quest Builders 2, raising crops and creating proper rivers and waterways this time around. This is a big win for some of the more extreme builders out there like myself who might have taken defence to another level.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on July 12th 2019 and I for one can’t wait to get building all over again!
