Dragon Quest Builders Gets A Release Date For The Switch

Nintendo and Square Enix previously teased that Dragon Quest Builders was heading to the Nintendo Switch. However, what we didn’t know was when this was happening. Thankfully, that’s all changed as Nintendo has informed us that the release date will be February 9, 2018. Fans of the game will be able to get to finally play Dragon Quest Builders on the go.

In case you were wondering if the game is any good, it definitely is. In fact, while you’re here, check out our review of the game from the PlayStation 4. Our reviewer loved it, and we’re sure you will as well.

Adding another great third-party game to its ever-growing library, Dragon Quest Builders from Square Enix will launch for Nintendo Switch on Feb. 9. This charming game offers a new experience in the classic Dragon Quest series, allowing players to reconstruct towns using gathered building materials, fight monsters in real-time battles and meet memorable characters throughout a sprawling RPG. And just like every game on Nintendo Switch, this constructive adventure can be played at home or on the go.
 
Dragon Quest Builders features a large world to explore, including hidden treasures to discover and epic structures to build. Players can use their creativity to fulfill characters’ requests and build incredible towns using not only fun materials, but also their imaginations. In Terra Incognita – the game’s free-build mode – players can even upload their creations online, or download buildings made by other players.
 
Playing Dragon Quest Builders on Nintendo Switch will offer players experiences and items exclusive to this version of the game. This includes the ability to gather rare crafting materials and battle enemies while riding the powerful (and adorable) Great Sabrecub, as well as additional crafting options for more robust building customization options.
