This morning, during a dedicated broadcast from Jump Festa, Square Enix presented some information and images about updates and DLC coming to Dragon Quest Builders 2.
First of all, an update is coming soon to fix some underlying bugs, some of which pretty serious. The developers were quite apologetic about it on stage. As of launch day on Dec. 20, the game has been updated to version 1.01 on PS4 and 1.1.0 on Switch, but more is coming to grant users the smooth experience they deserve.
A New Year DLC will be released for free on Dec. 27, including a Hot Pot, a Kadomatsu decoration (a traditional Japanese decoration used for the New Year) and a Hagoita weapon. Those are traditional Japanese paddles derived from a badminton-like game called Hanetsuki which girls used to play during the New Year festivities.
The first paid DLC will include more traditional Japanese decor, including new blocks and furniture, which you can see at the bottom of the post.
