Square Enix shares the latest on Dragon Quest Builders in this week’s issue of Jump magazine, with a look at a new character named Amelda, and some more details on the recently revealed continent of Maira. [Thanks, @Kazu4281.]
As previously reported, the third continent is called Maira. You’ll meet the leader of Thugs, named Amelda (shown on the bottom-right of the scan.) They call her “Big Sis.”
In an effort to revive Maira, you’ll help Amelda, and even get to team up with the masked Thugs, and have them join in battle. You’ll also get to make powerful weapons such as cannons. There will also be machines (shown on the top of the scan) that can charge towards enemies and do massive damage regardless of their level.
Some of the confirmed monsters to show up in this area are Gigantes, Wizards, and Armored Knights.
Dragon Quest Builders will release in Japan on January 28, 2016 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
