Super Smash Bros Ultimate Director Masahiro Sakurai decided to offer people an inside look at the sorts of gaming creations he makes in his own time. Namely, we got a chance to see two of his Dragon Quest Builders 2 creations. He said he shared it in honor of both Dragon Quest’s hero and Minecraft’s Steve being added to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.‘s roster. [Thanks, Robert Sephazon and GoNintendo!]

Sakurai’s Dragon Quest Builders 2 video begins at the top of the mountain where you create your Builder’s Banner design that appears on your flag. He went with a Space Invaders Crab. (Which you could consider a callback to his “Game Design: Risk and Reward” presentation at GDC 2004.

The Buggy Buggy takes off from there and flies around a floating island that appears to be connected to the world below by a chain. He, Malroth, a Great sabrecub, and a Chimaera then exit the Buggy Buggy after it is parked in the island’s underground garage and heads up to the restaurant and building on the area above.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for the Nintendo Switch, and the Minecraft Steve DLC will arrive on October 13, 2020. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
