During the last meeting with shareholders, Nintendo confirmed that among the upcoming titles on Switch in the West, we will also find space for Dragon Quest Builders 2, whose launch is scheduled for 2019 in Europe and North America.
The document released by the Kyoto house confirms the desire to publish Dragon Quest Builders 2 for Switch in the West, while the publishing rights will obviously remain in the hands of Square-Enix for the PlayStation 4 version. Nintendo seems to have opted for publishing rights in Europe and North America for the future titles of Square-Enix, as already happened with The World Ends With You Final Remix, launched in mid-October.
At the moment Square-Enix has not revealed anything about the launch in Europe and USA of Dragon Quest Builders 2, the game will be released in Japan on December 20 on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, it is not excluded that in the western continent the title can also be launched on PC.
Once again, this spin-off of the RPG series will focus on construction, craftsmanship and the management of materials and construction elements. Four players can build together in Dragon Quest Builders 2.
In this second part, we will have new protagonists designed by the very same Akira Toriyama, as well as a story located after the events of Dragon Quest II. The game will also feature new mechanics, such as the possibility of recruiting NPC for our island, as well as a much deeper multiplayer mode. Last, but not least, if we import a game from the first Dragon Quest Builders, we will get juicy rewards in the form of items and recipes.
