I was a huge fan of Dragon Quest Builders from the original Demo all the way into the full release in which I easily clocked in eighteen and a half hours on launch day. What? I started at midnight and forgot there was work being done outside of my house that was so noisy that I couldn’t sleep through. So? More Dragon Quest Builders!
So that said, it was already announced that Square Enix was going to work on some smaller issues, like the water in which it was only three blocks high and that it could only work from the level that it originated from. You couldn’t bring it up and make your own custom waterfalls. Now you should be able to and you can swim AND you can now play with others. Enough on me ranting though, here’s the full press release with the North American launch date later this year.

DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 Story
The evil Children of Hargon are determined to eradicate all creators and have outlawed the building, cooking, and creation of all things. In an attempt to spread their destructive dogma, the calamitous cult captures the builders of the world. All hope seems to be lost until you, a young apprentice builder, manage to escape from the clutches of evil.
After washing up on the shores of the deserted Isle of Awakening, you encounter the spirited Malroth, a mysterious youth with no memory of his past. With the help of your fearless new friend, you embark on a grand adventure to gather the skills required to become a full-fledged builder, but the road you build is paved with peril. Only you can defeat the Children of Hargon, uncover the secrets of Malroth’s past, and unravel the riddles of this mysterious land.
