Square Enix held a stream to further demonstrate the upcoming Dragon Quest Builders 2, the sequel to the original Dragon Quest Builders, which took the long running and beloved JRPG series, and basically merged it with Minecraft in the most charming way possible. Dragon Quest Builders 2 had already been announced before, but a lot about it was unknown until today.
Today, however, we learned more about it (via Siliconera). The game will have improved action elements, which were actually a point of contention among players and fans with the first game. Square Enix revealed that they have enlisted Koei-Tecmo’s help to assist with that facet of the game, in fact. They also revealed that the game will have co-op for up to four players, supported both locally and online.
The game will get two DLC waves post launch, again in response to player sentiment that the original game did not get as much post launch support as they wanted. Finally, Square Enix revealed that it will come out on December 20 this year in Japan for PS4 and Switch; a western release date, obviously, has not yet been announced.
