Today Square Enix released a new batch of screenshots of its upcoming building JRPG Dragon Quest Builders 2: Destruction God Malroth and the Empty Island.
The screenshots feature Malroth (actually his Japanese name is Sidoo, which is Malroth’s original Japanese name in Dragon Quest II), a boy who lost his memories that the hero meets on the titular Empty Island. He does not have any crafting talent, but he is very good at fighting monsters and gathering.
He becomes a dependable companionable to kill monsters with powerful attacks, and gathering materials for the hero. It’s a good idea to equip him with a good weapon.
Also, he’s totally not Malroth in boy form, right?
At the moment there is no official release window (even if a summer 2018 release was hinted at for Japan), but we do know that the game is in development for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
