Square Enix shared new details on Dragon Quest Builders 2 in this week’s issue of Jump magazine with a first look at the male and female protagonists of the block-builder RPG sequel. [Thanks, @Aterufa-Iomo.]
The full title of the game has been revealed as Dragon Quest Builders 2: God of Destruction Malroth and the Empty Island. Malroth is the final boss of Dragon Quest II, and if it’s anything like Dragon Quest Builders that told a “what if” story based on the very first Dragon Quest, we can expect there to be something similar.
The male and female protagonists who were designed by Akira Toriyama will also have the power to build as their ancestors did, like the previous protagonist. It’ll take place on the vast Empty Island where they’ll find themselves drifted onto after a certain event. This island doesn’t have any houses or towns and is literally an empty island, but you’ll have to be the one to build everything using resources from the island and items that drift ashore.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is in development for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
