Today Square Enix released a small batch of screenshots and artwork of Dragon Quest Builders 2.

We get to see the male and female heroes. They’re young builders whose ancestors have been legendary in the trade. We also get to see the “Empty Island” that will serve as a setting for the game. There are no houses or inhabitants, and the builders will have to make use of their powers in order to create many things on the barren landscape.

Last, but not least, we see the main enemy of the game, which is appropriately Malroth from Dragon Quest II.  How he will tie into the story is still a mystery, but the newly-revealed subtitle of the game is “Hakai-shin Shidoo to Karappo no Shima” which means “Destruction God Malroth and the Empty Island.”

You can check out the screenshots and artwork below. If you want to see more, you can check out the original announcement for the game. At the moment there is no official release window (even if a summer 2018 release was hinted at), but we do know that the game is in development for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
