This new game is also coming to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and is set to release in Japan this winter.
A single screenshot for the game was revealed (see below), alongside a brief description of the game and a teaser website.
In Dragon Quest Builders players will be tasked with rebuilding the world of Alefgard (the land where the first Dragon Quest title takes place) after it has been destroyed by the Dragon King.
This is where the Minecraft similarities come into play as you will rebuild this world by collecting blocks and assembling structures out of them – with no restrictions bar your own imagination!
Dragon Quest Builders has been given the description of a ‘block-making RPG’, so we may find that this game has more of a prevalent story than Minecraft does.
With no news yet of a Western release, here’s hoping that Square Enix do decide to localise this title as it sure does appeal to me! Is this something you would like to see appear on the PlayStation Vita in your region?
