Dragon Quest Builders: news and videos

Dragon Quest Builders is just as delightful on Switch

I was skeptical of Dragon Quest Builders when it was first announced, but Square Enix's take on the sandbox genre ended up hitting the mark. It's not just Minecraft through the lens of Dragon Quest as some initially feared -- there's a prop...

The Minecraft-like Dragon Quest Builders will build its way over to the Nintendo Switch on February 9, 2018 for both the US and Europe. Both the physical and digital version will launch on the same day. Nintendo let the news out on both Twi...

Dragon Quest Builders coming to Switch next spring

Holy cow, Switch is getting a good chunk of Japanese role-playing games. There's that Octopath thing that's largely unknown, but then there's also the more familiar Dragon Quest Builders too. Announced during the Nintendo Direct, it's not f...

Review: Dragon Quest Builders

Once it hit me that Dragon Quest Builders was essentially a 3D remake of the first game (and technically a sequel at the same time), it blew me away. I mean, you get a sense of that from the initial 30 minutes so it's not really a secr...

Review in Progress: Dragon Quest Builders

I had the chance to preview Dragon Quest Builders recently, and it left me wanting more. Initially I thought that there was a chance the game was front-loaded, and that after that honeymoon period passed, things would potentially devolve in...

Dragon Quest Builders has a demo out for PS4 and Vita

I can't remember the last time I downloaded a demo, but I'll happily take the time to nab the trial for Dragon Quest Builders (PS4 here, PS Vita here). I'm so curious about this game. What initially looked like a me-too sandbox constructio...

You can pick up a Dragon Quest Builders demo in Japan

Dragon Quest Builders is massively intriguing. While most Minecraft-like games are usually just straight-up clones from smaller developers, here we have Square Enix and a massively popular property meshed in, and who knows -- it c...

Dragon Quest Builders will not support PlayStation TV

When you pick up a game on Vita, it should inherently just be supported on the PS TV, right? Well that's not the case in a number of instances, and it's really starting to get confusing. Just recently, Square Enix has confirmed that Dragon ...

Dragon Quest Builders gets trailer, out January 2016

Square Enix showed off the opening cinematic for Dragon Quest Heroes and its director proceeded to explain block-building games as if Minecraft isn't also huge in Japan (it is). Builders is an in-house Square Enix project getting "idea...

Don't write off Dragon Quest Builders just yet

That first image of Dragon Quest Builders (PS3, PS4, PS Vita) didn't do much for me. "Huh? Dragon Quest through the lens of Minecraft? Uhh, okay." *closes tab* These latest screenshots are more substantial. The "Camp" bar in the HUD is intr...

New Dragon Quest looks like a Minecraft clone

Minecraft has no shortage of imitators, but I never thought Dragon Quest would be one of them. Enter Square Enix with its latest creation, Dragon Quest Builders, a "block make RPG" that looks an awful lot like Mojang's ludicrously popular s...
