In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the DRAGON QUEST® franchise, SQUARE ENIX® today announced that DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS™ will arrive in North America in October 2016. In this all-new building adventure, players will use their creativity to gather and combine a variety of unique tools and materials in order to rebuild Alefgard, a realm destroyed by the menacing ruler of the monsters, the Dragonlord.
The title offers sandbox gameplay combined with an immersive story and allows players to interact with a host of iconic characters and monsters. Players can let their imagination run wild to create an infinite variety of structures, in response to extravagant requests from citizens eager to find new homes.

So… minecraft but in the Dragonquest universe. I’m totally fine with that.
DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS will arrive in October 2016 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and digitally on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system at North American retailers, the PlayStation®Store, and the Square Enix Online Store.
I’m excited for this because I loved the Dragon Warrior series. It would be nice to play in a sandbox game with a full fledged story. Gonna put my Vita to good use this fall!
