Dragon Quest Builders director on next game: ‘we have to return the favor with a good game’

Dragon Quest Builders 2 on the way?

Dragon Quest Builders

Dragon Quest Builders won the Gold Prize and Users Choice Prize at PlayStation Awards 2016. And during an interview after the ceremony, Square Enix director Kazuya Niinou and producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto made a brief comment about their next project.

Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto: “We really heard a lot from the fans, such as good points, things they want improved, and we really heard a lot of ‘we want you to make a sequel!’ As part of the Dragon Quest series, I want to live up to the fans’ expectations, but what kind of thoughts do you have about that, Niinou-san? (Laughs.)”

Director Kazuya Niinou: “…There are a lot of things I can’t say unless Fujimoto-san says it, but since we received this selection, I think we have to return the favor with a good game, and I want to work hard too for the time being to live up to your expectations.”

Dragon Quest Builders is now available worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. In Japan, a PlayStation 3 version is also available.
