Square Enix to Release Minecraft-inspired Dragon Quest Game
Dragon Quest XI might be Square Enix’s favorite project right now, based on all the news released about the game, but they also have another Dragon Quest-related project in the offing. It’s not another a straight-up JRPG like most of their offerings, but something that is obviously inspired by Minecraft. Titled Dragon Quest Builders, the game tasks players with rebuilding a world that has been destroyed by the Dragonlord.
As you can see by the trailer below, the game still features a sleek, chibi avatar that wouldn’t look out of place in any modern Dragon Quest game. The difference is that it can mine and build stuff on top of the usual monster-slaying activities. The world also consists of blocks, if the Minecraft-inspiration isn’t obvious yet.
Dragon Quest Builders is scheduled for release on the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PS Vita platforms this winter.
