Jumbo Demo for Dragon Quest Builders 2

If you have held off on buying Dragon Quest Builders 2 and you still are eager to see more of the game, you’re in luck. A very extended demo is now available on the Switch. The original one had you playing through the tutorial and wander around the Isle of Awakening.

In the new demo, you can go to the first story location, Furrowfield Farm. You can play through that entire storyline, and I can tell you that’s quite some hours of gameplay. The save data can be transferred if you should purchase the full game after that. After all, if you liked Furrowfield Farm, there are five more story locations in the game. We reviewed Dragon Quest Builders 2 as a Two Thumbs Up game, our maximum praise. Check out our review here. 

That’s all from me, until next time – see-ya!

We love to hear from you!
