'Dragon Quest Builders' For PS4 And PS Vita Heading To The US This October: Here's The Deal

Close

Dragon Quest Builders is officially set to roll out to the PS4 and PS Vita in the United States and Europe.

This news comes fairly hot on the heels when the ­Minecraft-inspired sandbox game launched in Japan back in January across the aforementioned platforms and the PS3. On that note, the North American version won't land on the previous-gen console.

"You could say that Dragon Quest Heroes laid the groundwork for Dragon Quest games on PS4 and we're now ready to start building on those foundations," says Dan Seto, community manager of SEJ West.

On an interesting note, the arrival of Dragon Quest Builders to U.S. shores is a part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the franchise.

In the game, the player takes on the role of the Legendary Builder, the only person in the world who has the capability of creating objects with the power of imagination, as the "few survivors scattered around the world no longer understand the concept of creativity," according to Square Enix.

It's set in a sort of alternate story line based on the original Dragon Quest, where players are tasked with restoring the world village by village and anything else along those lines. As everyone can see, it really took a couple of pages out of the Minecraft playbook.

Availability-wise, Dragon Quest Builders will hit the shelves later this year, in October. While the PS4 is going to get both physical and digital copies of the game, the PS Vita will only be getting a digital version. More details are expected to make the headlines before the title goes live, so that's something worth looking out for.
