Thanks to Square Enix for bringing this game for the Vita. This game made me fall in love with the Dragon Quest franchise, and it's a great start for anyone.
Very fun game for the creative types and Dragon Quest fans!
My only gripe is that the building can get so fun that a lot of the time invested in the game, at least in my case was spent experimenting with creating castles and other buildings. If you have very strong will you will be able to finish the game a lot quicker.
I have played DQ Builders in Japanese on the Vita first, thinking it would not get localized. When it did get released in the west I played it again on PS4. And now, thanks to the Asian English release the PS Vita version, which is digital only in the west can also be enjoyed on a Vita card. And behold, it not only contains English text, but the wonderful German translation is right there on the card as well! I have not tested, but I would think French, Italian and any European language the game was released in digitally can also be found on the card. It will simply play whichever language your system is set to. This is especially great because the DQ series has one of the most liveable, funny translation traditions in my native language.
So even if English is not your strong point, you can get the game in your native language here!
About the game itself ... it is amazing. It is Minecraft with a purpose. You have quests to fulfill, a story to follow, great art design and one of the best looking and smoothest 3D engines to be found on Sony's handheld. You can navigate the vast landscapes without problems, you can see far ahead, the framerate is good ... this is an alround great achievement on a handheld system.
Do yourself a favor and buy this if you have a Vita. It is sure to be regarded as one of the system's top games forever.
I really wanted a physical copy of this game, I thought it was only available digitally but then I found out about the Asia-English version. Well worth importing for physical collectors. This game is so fun, it gets more play than any of my other Vita games.
The game feels like a cross between Minecraft (Mining, Crafting, and Building) and Animal Crossing (Doing favors for people, decorating houses, fishing) with a strong Dragon Quest setting (enemy types, weapons and armor, story, general aesthetic.) It's a pretty long game spread across four chapters each with their own unique lands and characters, each chapter has 4 individual islands to explore. Additionally there's a free play mode called Terra Incognita with it's own landmass and new islands unlocked through story mode. Each chapter can be played as quick or slow as you like. You can build anywhere you want, but you have a set town location to build at in each chapter where your NPCs will interact with the buildings. The environments are all totally destructible and you can reshape it as you wish, your only barrier being the water's edge of each island, but each island is very large and full of places to explore.
The Asia-English version plays fine on any Vita, there are no DLC for the game so region isn't an issue. The game will automatically be in English if your Vita is set to that language.
