If Dragon Quest Heroes wasn“t out of left field enough for you, a new type of Dragon Quest game draws near! Dragon Quest Builders: Revive Alefgard is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan. It“s reportedly a Minecraft-like â€œblock-make RPGâ€ that“s going to mix elements of two iconic gameplay styles. It“s certainly a unique premise for the long-running franchise!
If you recognize the name â€œAlefgardâ€, it“s because that“s the name of the first ever Dragon Quest world, from way back when it was known as Dragon Warrior in the West. It seems to be a direct sequel to the first Dragon Quest game, where it“s up to the player to build the ravaged world back to life. You“ll get to revive/rebuild the world as you see fit, and the story progresses as you do so...like any â€œblock-make RPGâ€ should!
There“s not much more information, but I“ll certainly keep you posted. In the meantime, you can check out the game“s official website for more. It“s coming this winter in Japan. No localization has been announced for any Dragon Quest game outside of Heroes in a long while, but...I wouldn“t necessarily lose hope.
