Product Details:

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, was instead tricked into joining him. Through this vile villain's magical machinations, 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. But now, a legendary figure arises - a hero chosen by the Goddess herself - who sets out to return the power of creation to the people of Alefgard. Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned to the land will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all!


  • Build a variety of unique tools from materials you gather, and rebuild towns and cities to restore life to the shattered world of Alefgard.
  • An intuitive control system will have you building the towers and castles of your dreams in no time.
  • Play your own way - an immersive DRAGON QUEST® story and world to explore, combined with the freedom of sandbox gameplay, provides a new and exciting, family-friendly experience.
  • Battle with famous monsters from the DRAGON QUEST series and interact with gorgeously designed 3D characters

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very fun game for all. This game is super fun and not too hard. It's really fun to complete the quests that are given to you, but it's also awesome that you have the freedom to use the materials you are given however you want. It also has a cute story that pushes the player into discovering more about the setting and materials they have. It may not be super challenging, but casual gamers who enjoy building will love this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hated Minecraft, Love this One of the main things i hated about minecraft is that there was no story or purpose other then to build things mindlessly. This game has a story so it feels rewarding to build your town, help the people of the land, and defend your town against monsters! Plus it has that quirky dragon quest rpg vibe that i love. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! To be honest, I don't like minecraft. However, I love dragon quest builder's story mode (as it guides me to the game), and the free play mode. I have nothing negative to say about this game; I just love it. THe building is easy and fun! Even in story, I can use my own personality to build! Towers! You got it! Houses with a roof! You got it! It has more than everything I could have imagined! Love it! Love SQEnix for releasing it here in the states. My only hope is others see how good this game is and buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dragon quest builders is a realy great game i have never played any dragon quest games but this is a very great game from what i have heard the dragon quest franchise are turn based games but i don't think i would like them but dragon quest builders is a great game with lot of monster and a lot of building but when am not building i am doing many other activities like fishing and helping some monsters for great rewards and also every chapter is a new biom but also has three other bioms that you get to though portals also each chapter has its own story but still having to do with the main story of defeating the dragon lord and rebuilding the world but one thing that i did not get use to till later was that every time you leave to a new chapter you lose everything you have got in the chapter you were in including some of the recipes you learned but once you get to the next chapter you have better cloth and weapon also you get new recipes in each chapter and the recipes you lose you usually do not need and lots of things change every chapter but i got use to it and so will a lot of people because it will give people a small head start each time you go to the next chapter like new cloth and better weapon but this game is one of my favorite games so far
