Dragon Quest Builders for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita Announced by Square Enix; First Minecraft-Like Screenshot Released

on July 8, 2015 2:15 AM

Square Enix announced today with a press release Dragon Quest Builders: Alefgard o Fukkatsu Seyo, that will be released this winter in Japan for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

The genre is exactly what you can imagine by looking at the first screenshot below. It’s defined as a “Block Building RPG.”

The story is set in the continent of Alefgard (the original Dragon Quest setting), that has been devastated by the Dragon King, and the goal of the game is to recapture the land from the evil villain, also thanks to the freedom to build.

An official teaser website has also been opened, and can be found here.

This is probably the new Dragon Quest announcement that Square Enix teased last week, and considering the rather striking similarity with a certain other game, it’s definitely interesting.
