Dragon Quest Builders heading westwards this October

Slimecraft.

Square Enix has announced that it's to localise Dragon Quest Builders, the Minecraft-esque spin-off to the long-running RPG series, with the game coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita this October.

Dragon Quest is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary, and Builders launched in Japan earlier this year. A fairly light construction RPG, it's a neat gateway to the series for newer players (and an effective gateway to Minecraft-esque games for the older generation, from what I've played).

It shouldn't be the only new Dragon Quest game we'll be seeing this year, with Dragon Quest 8's remake due on 3DS at some point this year, and Dragon Quest 11's PS4 outing also due out in Japan.
