Dragon Quest Builders 2 - PS4/Switch - Out Now! GOTY contender.

Wow. They're actually making a sequel.

 

The first one is incredible but lacked multi-player, which this sequel has. It's Minecraft X Dragon Quest, basically, with a mission based structure, loads of quests, single or party combat and lots of buildings, weapons, food and other items to craft and use. It's such a good fit for Switch portability too.

 

Now features gliding:

Makes me feel warm and cosy watching that, what little they show, I can't wait. No doubt looking at a summer/autumn release in the west. Switch version released alongside PS4 this time and will no doubt easily outsell it too.

Same here. First one on Switch was one of my favourite games of the last few years. But the thought of a sequel isn’t that appealing. Multiplayer holds zero interest for me, and while gliding and swimming look interesting, they wouldn’t really have added much to the first game anyway.

I'm REALLY looking forward to this. I want it for the Switch, but I watched a review of the japanese version of youtube and they said the game was draining the Switch battery in handheld mode like no other game they'd played before, so I might want to see if they optimize it some more for the western release before I shell out.

An aquarium set, modern set and something else - there's a free one too, all coming very shortly after release too. Doesn't seem to be any story stuff luckily.
