About the Game

Dragon Quest Builders

Craft a New World Anytime, Anywhere

With Nintendo Switch, you can take Dragon Quest Builders with you, wherever you like! What’s more, a Nintendo Switch exclusive Great Sabrecub will boost your speed and grant you special material by defeating enemies.

A World In Chaos

Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness when the hero fated to slay the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, the ruler of all monsters, instead fell into his trap!

Through the King of Darkness' evil powers, mankind was scattered to the winds and robbed of the power to build. With even the idea of creativity relegated to mere legend, the people of Alefgard wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive.

The Goddess Has Spoken

You have been chosen by the goddess Rubiss. Rise as a legendary Builder in a tale of epic proportions, and explore a vast sandbox world to gather materials, craft items and build everything imaginable.

Build a Legacy

Master the art of construction, shape your own towns however you want, defend them from monsters, and rescue townsfolk in need. Succeed and you may just rebuild Alefgard, the very same world where the Dragon Quest series began.

Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all.

Freestyle Forming

A separate free build mode allows you to build to your heart’s content with unlimited resources – the intuitive control system will have you building the towers and castles of your dreams in no time! What will you create?

Restore life to the shattered world of Alefgard in Dragon Quest Builders on Nintendo Switch!

  • Gather materials, craft items and build everything imaginable – anytime, anywhere!
  • Play through a tale of epic proportions in a sandbox world packed with memorable characters and dangerous monsters
  • Use the power of creation in battle against the reigning Dragonlord and restore peace to the shattered realm
  • A Nintendo Switch exclusive Great Sabrecub will boost your speed and grant you special material by defeating enemies.

I bought this game as I tried the demo and got addicted, so far I am playing at least 2-3 evenings a week. I am enjoying the game very much as I can do a few quests in one sitting. My only issue is the camera angles can be very annoying! But I can only recommend this game.

There are some issues re the controls, they are fiddly and detract from game play. Still prefer Portal Knights, a big software company like Square are not concentrating on the details, bought Romancing Saga a few weeks ago same issue with controls. Take your money and sell you sub standard games.

London GB
Excellent adventure / building game. It takes the mechanics of breaking and placing cubes from the massively popular Minecraft, but gives it a completely unique spin, adding a delightful story with cute characters and a much more robust structure than its inspiration.
