February is the gift that keeps on giving for Nintendo fans. There are a number of games that have recently been announced for releasing in the month and we have one more to add to the list.
Nintendo has announced that they’ll be publishing Dragon Quest Builders and it will launch here in the US on February 9th. The building game takes place right after the events of the first Dragon Quest game (Dragon Warrior here in the States) that was released on the NES back in 1989 (1986 in Japan). The game is a sort of what-if scenario where the hero of the game accepts a request from the Dragon Lord to join him in ruling the world. That causes cause and the world is destroyed. You, in this game, have to rebuild it.
The game has some similarities to Minecraft, but it’s so much more than that. There are RPG elements built on top of the mining, resource gathering, and crafting. You’ll accept quests from villagers, rescue trapped characters, and more. If you’ve never seen the game in action, check out this trailer.
