Square Enix released a batch of new screenshots of its upcoming Minecraft-meets-JRPG game Dragon Quest Builders 2: Destruction God Malroth and the Empty Island.

First of all, we get to see a monument that the hero and Malroth will find on the titular Empty Island. A mysterious voice calling to the hero says that he’ll become a master builder if he can pass the test carved in the stone.

More screenshots showcase more of gameplay, including sprinting, underwater exploration, gliding, the fact that you can build 100 blocks high, falling water, oblique cuts for blocks, and the optional first-person perspective to see the action from the point of view of the hero himself.

You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can check out the male and female heroes, more screenshots showing the boy named Malroth, and the original announcement for the game.

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.
