Check this out! Dragon Quest is one of that oddly inland sequence of games. As it is massively popular in Japan but almost unfamiliar of in the West. It has a long genealogy though and when Square Enix broadcasted a new spin-off game called Dragon Quest Builders, many ousted it as a poor Minecraft copy. They could not have been more wrong, as this game creates something entirely crisp and fresh.
Dragon Quest Builders is distinct as it's not a direct clone but closer to an action RPG with a lot of stories that carry over from its cousin Dragon Quest. Dragon Quest Builders releases for PS4 and Vita by October 11. At launch, players can pick up a Day One edition, which contains three particular recipes that make building elements only usable in the game's free-build mode. Check out each recipe here.
Story: For Ages, the domain of Alefgard was immersed into darkness by the terrible and perfidious Dragonlord, ruler of all monsters. Humanity was robbed of the power to build and forced to roam the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to last long.
In this introductory chapter of the game, fans can explore a large open island, restore a town and battle hordes of monsters all while completing exciting quests.
If you're still uncertain about this game, it was announced this morning in the aforesaid new Dragon Quest Builders trailer that players in North America and Europe can download a free demo via the PlayStation Store. The demo is accessible now for both PS4 and Vita and comprises a preparatory chapter to the game; which will allow players to survey large islands and undergo building, combat, and quests. For those who love to build walls, this should give you excitement because the game can help you decide whether or not it's worth investing the money in.
Inasmuch as the game has been out the earlier year in Japan, there is also the benefit of expectations circling the web for the Japanese version. Most particularly, Famitsu gave the verdict of 36/40 (viaGematsu). Famitsu is not one to hand out such high review scores routinely, so this is highly promising.
