Dragon Quest Builders for Nintendo Switch

As an avid fan of Minecraft and Stardew Valley, I picked up Dragon Quest Builders for the Nintendo Switch at the recommendation of friends.

With a storyline as deep as Stardew’s and a sandbox world as vast as Minecraft’s, Dragon Quest Builders combines the best elements of both games. The Switch features attractive graphics, dynamic gameplay, and controls that are simple to master.

Essentially, Dragon Quest Builders tasks the player with rebuilding a lost world, starting with a tiny base crafted from just a few basic elements. One of the game’s main objectives is to collect new items and learn how to combine them for maximum results. This allows the player to build up the base, which, in turn, attracts new characters to inhabit the town. From there, the characters present new storylines, helping to find portals to new islands to find even more potential residents.

The player encounters new monsters while traveling and exploring new islands, especially at night. There are also random attacks on the player’s base, which usually results in large battles. The action is difficult enough to be exciting, but not so frequent that exploring becomes irritating. It’s easy to lose a few fights and die a few times, but you won’t lose much of your game’s progress as a result.

Dragon Quest Builders was released for the Nintendo Switch in 2018 and currently sells for $49.99 on Nintendo’s website, though a free demo is also available. If the game piques your interest, but you don’t feel ready to commit to buying it just yet, maybe check back this summer. Dragon Quest Builders 2 will release for the Nintendo Switch on July 12 of this year. Perhaps we might see the price of the original Builders drop around then.
