Dragon Quest Builders originally released on the Vita and PS4 in 2016, and got a Switch port later on. Better availability is always welcome, and while the sequel pretty much expands on this in every way, the original’s smaller scale should suit busy folks a little better. Read our review to learn the ins and outs. I have to concur—Builders is a jolly good slime (er, time).

Until June 9th, Dragon Quest Builders is on sale on the Apple App and Google Play Stores for 20% off ($21.99 USD). For more DQ, read RPGFan, you!
