Pre-orders for Dragon Quest Builders 2 have now gone live on the European Switch eShop, and Nintendo has shared more details surrounding the game’s future content.
As we already know, the game will launch on 12th July. It will receive one free DLC pack as well as three paid DLC packs after launch, with the first two of these coming just a couple of weeks after release on 26th July. Each of the paid packs can be purchased separately or together in a Season Pass available for £18.99.
The packs are said to “offer various content such as new locations in the game, additional recipes, new quests and a variety of customisable options like clothes and hairstyles”. We’ve got all the info you’ll need below:
Hotto Stuff Pack (Release date: 26th July / Price: €5.99): This pack includes more than 40 recipes to design and decorate structures that look similar to the Hotto Steppe – a popular resting area in a distant land where weary visitors can take a break from their travels. Players will also get access to an additional island to gather the materials they’ll need to build these recipes.
Aquarium Pack (Release date: 2nd August / Price €9.99): Check the mailbox on the Isle of Awakening to discover a fishing island with a net full of quests and characters to meet. Learn how to catch 40 different fish that can be added to a DIY aquarium. Unlock the fishing rod as well as customisation options, including swimwear, straw hats and a ponytail hairstyle.
Modernist Pack (Release date: 9th August / Price: €9.99): This pack includes more than 70 different recipes to construct modern-looking structures, or change hairstyles and clothing. Players can take their architectural skills to the next level by building a fashionable luxury hotel.
Knickknack Pack (Release date: 26th July / Price: Free): This free pack includes three recipes to create a Pretty Paddle, Celebratory Soup and Ornate Adornment so players can celebrate every New Year with some Hotto flair.
We’ve had a quick gander on the eShop and found a variety of purchase options. You can pre-order the main game for £49.99 and grab the Season Pass separately for £18.99, or you can buy a digital bundle which contains all of that content for £71.99. Buying both separately actually works out cheaper at present, so we’re not sure what’s going on there.
Still, if you’re hoping to buy a digital copy of the game, it’s all available right now at the click of a button.
Are you excited for this one? Will you be grabbing the Season Pass, or are you only wanting the base game? Tell us below.
