All Articles: Dragon Quest Builders
Last week, Square Enix released a demo of Dragon Quest Builders ahead of its October 11th launch. I haven’t played a Dragon Quest game since Dragon Warrior hit the NES, and that one ended in horrible tragedy. I never had any prior interest in Dragon Quest Builders; my only knowledge being that it incorporated elements of mega-hit Minecraft. I was a fan of Minecraft, so I decided to give it a shot. I mean, that’s the point of a demo, right? (more…)
if you’re unfamiliar with Dragon Quest Builders, Square Enix’s upcoming “open-world sandbox RPG,” then the game’s newest trailer was made just for you. The publisher covers a lot of ground over the course of four and a half minutes, ultimately delving into its story (which runs parallel to the original Dragon Quest), the realm of Alefgard, the monsters that are threatening it, and most importantly, how to build things…
Rise as a legendary builder in a tale of epic proportions and explore a vast sandbox world to gather materials, craft items, and build everything imaginable. It’s up to you to use the power of creation in battle against the reigning Dragonlord and his evil minions to restore peace to the shattered realm. Build for fun. Build for adventure. Build to save the world!
Dragon Quest Builders will be released for the PS4 and Vita on October 11.
Square Enix loves PAX West and the Japanese megapublisher will once again have a major presence at the Seattle-based convention.
The publisher’s booth will include a dozen demos, including some of this Fall’s biggest releases (Dragon Quest Builders, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and World of Final Fantasy). Square Enix also plans to demo 2017’s biggest re-release, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
But if you want to get up close and personal with your favorite developers, a series of panels from the publisher will give you your chance. Friday will focus on Deus Ex Go and Final Fantasy XV, while Saturday’s presentations will dive deep into Final Fantasy XV, World of Final Fantasy, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
A complete look at all of Square Enix’s demos and panels can be found after the break. And don’t forget, the 2016 PAX West expo will kick off on Friday, September 2. (more…)
Square Enix will release Dragon Quest Builders for the PS4 and Vita on October 10, and fans seem very excited about this latest spinoff from the megapopular RPG franchise.
In addition to its Minecraft-like presentation, the game also goes back to the franchise’s roots and tells a story directly connected to the destruction of Alfegard during the original Dragon Quest, which was released for the NES all the way back in 1989. And possibly because of that connection, there’s a real chance that Dragon Quest Builders might make its way back onto a Nintendo console next year.
Speaking to DualShockers at this year’s Gamescom event, Series Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto said that Square Enix is considering a Nintendo NX port of Dragon Quest Builders. While it’s far from a sure thing, Fujimoto added that the “family-oriented” nature of Dragon Quest Builders would make it a great fit for the console.
The Nintendo NX will be released in March 2017… though we still know very little about Nintendo’s next console.
The Comic-Con booth has been broken down, so it’s on to the next Summer showcase for Square Enix. This morning, the publisher announced they’ll have 15 titles on display at this year’s Gamescom convention, which will kick off in Cologne, Germany on August 19.
Square Enix plans to have a massive presence on the show floor including multiple booths packed with more than 220 demo stations and totaling 1,100 square meters of space. These screens will be equipped with many of the company’s 2016 and 2017 offerings including Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Dragon Quest Builders, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and World of Final Fantasy . A portion of the booth will also be devoted to “Square Enix Collective” titles, and another section will tout the publisher’s “new announcements and reveals.”
What are they announcing? We’ll have to wait until August to find out for sure, but for now, you can peruse Square Enix’s complete Gamescom lineup after the break. (more…)
The publisher also confirmed that prospective players will be able to pre-order a special Day One Edition for the PS4 that includes bonus downloadable content for the game’s Terra Incognita (Free Build) Mode. This content will include exclusive in-game building materials, including a Slimy Block Recipe, Springtide Sprinkles Recipe, and Gold Block Recipe.
And don’t forget, if you’re in San Diego this weekend for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, you’ll be able to swing by Square Enix’s booth or the Square Enix Experience on Saturday and Sunday to give Dragon Quest Builders a try.
Dragon Quest Builders is also in the works for the Vita, and it’ll be available to download through the PlayStation Store on October 11 as well.
