Square Enix has updated the official Japanese website of Dragon Quest Builders 2 with some information on the game’s Endless Battle Island setting; we’ve rounded up the details below (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):

In Dragon Quest Builders 2, the residents of the island will actually help you build certain structures. All you need to do is make the blueprint and put the necessary materials for the structure in the storage chest. The residents will then proceed to build that structure according to the blueprint using materials from the storage chest.

Other than castles, you can also build magical weapons that can be used in the fight against the Hargon Order. Weapons include the Zap Barrier, which prevents enemies from advancing, the Sizz Tile, a trap that creates a pillar of flame when enemies step onto it, and the Woosh Vacuum, which attacks enemies with a huge tornado.

Enemies aren’t the only obstacle you’ll come across in your travels – you will also have to navigate difficult terrain. This includes underwater caves, strong storms and blizzards.

Ahead of the release of Dragon Quest Builders 2 on December 20, Square Enix continues to unveil new details on the game. This time, the latest update comes out of Weekly Jump with news on automatic construction by residents and a few fresh weapons.

The details on the convenient feature and new materials can be viewed below. The translation has been provided by Gematsu.

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.
