System: Switch
Release date: February 9, 2018
Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Nintendo

Dragon Quest has always been one of those series that’s remained niche for some reason, despite having a long and seminal history within video games. Throughout its many installments, we’ve seen Dragon Quest branch out and explore genres outside of its familiar RPG style. Dragon Quest, unlike some other properties that have a myriad of spinoffs, has actually adapted into these other genres rather fluidly, and the addition of Dragon Quest Builders adds to the list of awesome titles that hold their own outside of the main series, bringing a Minecraft aesthetic to the universe. While it may look like Minecraft at a glance, at the end of the day this really is just another Dragon Quest RPG, only with an emphasis for building and crafting. It’s an amazing mechanic that works to its favor, and with a storyline and vibrant worlds to keep you busy from chapter to chapter, Dragon Quest Builders is a game that’s very difficult to put down whether you’re familiar with the series, genre or not.

Dragon Quest Builders is out now on Switch. For a look at the game’s launch trailer, continue on below.

A new video from Digital Foundry examines the Switch version of Dragon Quest Builders. We’re able to get a better idea regarding how the game holds up technically, and how it compares to the PlayStation 4 version.

Dragon Quest Builders runs at 720 when docked rather than going for a higher resolution. That’s because the developers were targeting 60 frames per second. Also, this allowed for much of the visual quality from the PlayStation 4 version to be preserved.

We’re quickly approaching Dragon Quest Builders’ release on February 9th. Nintendo has published a brief new trailer for the game:
