Meet Chaco and Dolton (formerly known as Bananzo).

Square Enix has updated the official Japanese website for Dragon Quest Builders 2 with information and screenshots of the recently introduced Monzola Island story arc and its residents.

Get the details below.

■ Monzola Island Story

A land of new adventure, Monzola Island is a barren land where the Babango Fruit has rotted the earth!

The protagonist visits the island known as Monzola in his or her quest to become a full-fledged builder. Monzola was once an island spreading with rich greenery, but now with the earth rotted and the crops withered, it is a mere shadow of its former self. The Babango Fruit that sometimes appears throughout the island seems to be rotting the land.

—Rotten soil is spread across Monzola Island=.

On Monzola Island, where the destructive teachings of the Hargon Order have spread, the protagonist takes on the restoration of the island’s rich greenery!

The protagonist will work together with the residents of Monzola Island to restore its rich greenery, but something is amiss. It seems that the Hargon Order’s destructive teachings have spread to Monzola, and many of its residents believe that building is bad and builders bring about despair.

Will the protagonist be able to restore Monzola Island to its former glory…?

—The Hargon Order’s destructive teachings have spread to the residents of Monzola Island, who believe building is bad.
