Dragon Quest Builders Gets a Playable Demo On Nintendo Switch

Posted on January 11, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Square Enix has released a limited demo version of their upcoming Nintendo Switch port of Dragon Quest Builders. If the demo is anything like the original PlayStation 4 demo, it will allow players to experience around two hours of the main story and unlimited time repairing a single village and exploring a large section of the map. The resources and upgrades in the demo version are quite limited compared to the full version but some have reported a total playtime of between four and six hours – not bad for free.

Here’s the official description:

Dragon Quest Builders – Demo Version – A free demo for the Dragon Quest Builders game is available today in Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch. Gather, craft, and build the kingdom of your dreams to restore the ruined world of Alefgard! As the legendary Builder, you’ll construct rooms, towns and defenses while fighting monsters. The full version of Dragon Quest Builders launches for Nintendo Switch on Feb. 9.

Dragon Quest Builders was originally released in January 2016 for PS4 and was one of the first tiles to be development for the then code-named Nintendo NX. A sequel, Dragon Quest Builders 2, was unveiled in the Summer of 2017 and is expected to launch on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch sometime later this year.
