Dragon Quest Builders 2 has a minor form of cross-platform play between Switch and PS4

Cross-platform play between various consoles has been a hot topic in the gaming industry in the last couple of months, with Nintendo being very open to it while Sony often blocked any attempt at it. However, it seems like things are changing a little bit, at least for the upcoming Dragon Quest Builders 2.
One of the game’s key new features is the Bulletin Board, where players can upload pictures of the islands they created. The Bulletin Board also allows you to visit those islands yourselves. As it turns out, this Bulletin Board is shared between the Switch and PS4 versions of the game, so someone playing the game on Switch can visit an island from someone playing on PS4 and vice-versa. This info comes from an interview with the developers in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine.
