Square Enix’s charming chibi builder Dragon Quest Builders has sold 1.1 million copies since its release in Japan, December 2018.
Those might not sound like huge numbers, but it’s worth noting that Dragon Quest Builders 2 only released worldwide in July 2019. For perspective, it took the original Dragon Quest Builders a full year to reach the same figure, meaning the sequel has broken that mark in four months fewer.
Support for Dragon Quest Builders 2 isn’t quite over yet either. According to siliconera a final, free update will wrap up the story with an added epilogue, as well as bringing in a boost in save files, new Buildertopias and, crucially, more hairstyles to try out. If you want to get access to the epilogue you’ll need to have beaten the game, unlocked 45 different recipes, completed the entire set of Explorer’s Shores checklists and visited a Buildertopia. Revealed during a livestream, the update is coming to Japan on August 20 but worldwide release has yet to be announced.
