The latest issue of Weekly Jump magazine contained some new information on Dragon Quest Builders 2 (thanks to Gematsu for the translation). First up, some details on the game’s story: when the protagonist is washed ashore on the vacant island where the game takes place, they hear a mysterious voice telling them to go to the top of the island’s mountain. There, they find a mysterious stone monument bearing five crests. There are also numerous stone pillars on the island which are engraved with trials, which the protagonist must pass if they want to become a “Master Builder”.

There are also some new and improved gameplay elements compared to the first game, such as diving, gliding with the wind mantle, dashing, waterfalls and making diagonally-shaped blocks.

It seems that Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be taking place not too long after the actual Dragon Quest 2 game that came out on NES featuring an order that revolves around the antagonists of those games. Down below is a more in-depth description by Gematsu:

The peace that came after Hargon’s death collapsed with the rise of the “Hargon Order,” whose goal is to destroy the world. The Hargon Order spearheads the destruction of towns and castles all over the world. The earth falls into ruin, and there are little remains left of peoples’ lives.”
