Dragon Quest Builders 2 comes to Switch, PS4 this summer

The block-building action-RPG adds a lot more to do

Dragon Quest Builders 2, the sequel to the Dragon Quest block-building action-role-playing game, is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on July 12, Square Enix announced today.

The sequel to 2016’s Dragon Quest Builders will add online multiplayer for up to four players, as well as other new game features. Players can build larger structures, and can travel across air, land, and sea — and can fast-travel using a retro-style map. Builders 2 also adds the ability to raise and farm crops, and irrigate their lands, creating rivers, waterfalls, and pools to swim in.

Here’s the official description for Dragon Quest Builders 2’s story, from Square Enix:

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.
