Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest Builders, a cute Minecraft meets Dragon Quest title, will be heading west in October for PlayStation 4 and Vita.
In Dragon Quest Builders players will be gathering materials, using various tools at their disposal to restore towns and cities in the word of Alefgard– a human realm destroyed and plunged into darkness by the menacing ruler of the monsters, the Dragonlord. Players will take various quests from citizens and make sure they have a home to come back to. Familiar monsters from Dragon Quest lore will give more incentive to get lost in this creative crafting adventure.
The story goes as follows:
Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness when the hero fated to slay the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, the ruler of all monsters, was instead tricked into joining him. Through this vile villain’s magical machinations, mankind was scattered to the winds and robbed of the power to build. With even the idea of creativity relegated to mere legend, the people of Alefgard wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive.
But now, a legendary figure arises – a hero chosen by the Goddess herself – who sets out to return the power of creation to the people of Alefgard. Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned to the land will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all!
