The latest issue of Weekly Jump has new information on Dragon Quest Builders 2, introducing more information on the game’s story and evolved adventure elements.
When the protagonist who washes ashore the game’s “Vacant Island” setting begins exploring, they hear a mysterious voice, which tells them to head to the top of the island’s mountain. There, they discover a mysterious stone monument. The protagonist also discovers that there are stone pillars all over the island, which are engraved with “trials” they must pass. According to the voice, overcoming these trials is the path to the protagonist becoming a Master Builder.
There are five marks engraved onto the stone monument at the top of the mountain. You can see these crests by closely examining the stone monument. As for what significance these crests carry, that has yet to be revealed.
The game’s evolved adventure elements include swimming underwater, gliding with the wind mantle, waterfalls, making diagonally-shaped blocks, and high-speed movement through dashing.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is in development for PlayStation 4 and Switch. A release date has yet to be announced. If you missed it last week, read up on the game’s protagonist and setting here.
