Now Playing: Dragon Quest Builders - Announcement Trailer

"The story of Dragon Quest Builders actually follows a 'what if' story following the original Dragon Quest," Square Enix community manager Dan Seto explains.

"In this story the realm has been destroyed because the hero (from DQ1) who was supposed to save the world by defeating the evil Dragonlord, actually got tempted into accepting a sham deal with him.

"This plunges the land into darkness and despair and the few survivors scattered around the world no longer understand the concept of creativity and live through scavenging what remains among ruins."

Physical and digital versions of the game will be available for PlayStation 4, while the PlayStation Vita version will only be digital. You can check out the new trailer in the video above, or see the TGS 2015 trailer here.
