Dragon Quest Builders 2 now has a subtitle and we have new information about the game.
The full title of the game, according to a Siliconera translation of the current issue of the weekly manga magazine Jump, is Dragon Quest Builders 2: God of Destruction Malroth and the Empty Island.
That’s a long title, but it reveals something about the game. Malroth, the final boss in Dragon Quest II, will almost certainly make a return.
The original Dragon Quest Builders story is based on an alternate ending to the original Dragon Quest, and has the protagonist rebuilding Alefgard after it was plunged into ruin by Dragonlord. The second game looks to have similar building mechanics to the original, which is reminiscent of Minecraft, in that anything can be destroyed and moved elsewhere.
In the second game, the male and female heroes wash up on the Empty Island (see: ridiculously long subtitle), which they’ll have to rebuild themselves using objects from the island and things that wash up on the beach.
While a release date has yet to be announced, Dragon Quest Builders 2: God of Destruction Malroth and the Empty Island will be releasing for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
