Dragon Quest Builders made quite a name for itself in Japan. The game changed up the traditional Dragon Quest formula to offer players a Minecraft-esque experience where players were given a space in the world to rebuild a destroyed town. Players could also explore the wilds of an area to search for resources.
This game made a huge splash when it arrived as a Playstation exclusive for the Playstation 4 and Vita, but that exclusivity has now ended thanks to the reveal that the game is headed to Nintendo Switch.
It was only a matter of time for the original Builders announcement for Switch when the game’s successor was revealed for the system in Japan a few months ago, but here we are.
Not much will be new with the Switch version. Most of what many know about the game from the previous version will be available such as the game’s campaign mode as well as a free build mode. But the latest Nintendo Direct did confirm Switch owners will gain access to an adorable Great Saber Cub for faster movement around the world; it’s not much but should make a nice companion.
Dragon Quest Builders has been announced for a spring 2018 release, where it will bring some great Dragon Quest adventuring and town building to the Switch.
