North America is Getting Dragon Quest Builders for the Switch Early Next Year

Build for love, build for glory.

Dragon Quest Builders on PlayStation 4 was one of my Game of the Year choices for 2016. I wasn't alone, either. Square-Enix's mash-up between Minecraft's building mechanic and the monster-slaying good times of vanilla Dragon Quest makes for a heck of an addictive experience.

If you missed out on Dragon Quest Builders the first time around, I forgive you. I also encourage you to buy the Nintendo Switch version of the game when it comes west in February. The Switch edition of Dragon Quest Builders even has some extras over its previous releases, including new textures and the opportunity to ride on the back of my personal totem, the Great Sabrecub.

Look for Dragon Quest Builders on the Nintendo Switch on February 9, 2017. Then join me in looking forward to Dragon Quest Builders II.
