Square Enix announces Dragon Quest: Builders; looks like Minecraft

Square Enix has released a bit of information on their new Dragon Quest addition, Dragon Quest Builders. Based on knowledge given, it looks like an RPG block building game.

Today Square Enix has announced their new addition in the Dragon Quest franchise, named Dragon Quest Builders. It looks very similar to Minecraft and Cube World with RPG elements in a block-building environment.

What we know

Dragon Quest Builders will become available in Japan this winter and currently has no international release date. As with previous Dragon Quest games, it will be playable on Sony consoles, including:

  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation Vita

Based on the images and earlier Dragon Quest installations, it seems to be a type of RPG block building game that we've seen with Minecraft and the lesser-known Cube World. Although information about Dragon Quest Builders is unknown at the current time, it looks to be a promising game from an established developing company.

For those of you that missed the Cube World hype, it was designed to be an action-RPG game set in a land that resembled Minecraft, being made up of blocks. It is with that knowledge that we can assume Dragon Quest Builders will be equally as RPG as it will be building. 

What do you guys think about this new Dragon Quest installment? I've been a fan of RPG games and Minecraft for years so I can say I'm excited!
