Missed out on Dragon Quest Builders, but interested in trying out the game's sequel? Good news! Square Enix has just revealed in its E3 2019 live stream presentation that a playable demo for the English language release of Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be coming on June 27.

Given that the game hasn't yet made its way to western territories, I haven't had the chance to try out Dragon Quest Builders 2. I did review Dragon Quest Builders for Shacknews, however, and I walked away from the experience with a smile on my face. Here's what I had to say:

"It's hard not to be charmed by Dragon Quest Builders. The team at Square Enix have managed to improve upon the concept of a crafting-focused sandbox game simply by adding in a touch of direction and personality. Players are still able to tear down and rebuild the world as they see fit, but the addition of townspeople and objectives makes Builders feel like a much more robust experience than similar games that came before it, even if it does at times feel a little clumsy. The resulting mix is by no means perfect, but Dragon Quest Builders still has more than enough content on offer to keep Nintendo Switch players satisfied for the foreseeable future."

Series fans can look forward to the full release of Dragon Quest Builders 2 for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch next month on July 12. Keep it tuned right here to Shacknews for more news, trailers, announcements, and video game reveals from this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
