Dragon Quest Builders is a single-player sandbox action role-playing game, with building and construction a key focus of its gameplay.

The aim is to rebuild the central town in each chapter, with both the quality and quantity of the buildings and decorations contributing to an overall Base Level. The higher a town's Base Level, the more citizens it will attract, and better quality items will become available. Inhabitants of a town will give the player quests in order to better their surroundings. The game also features a day/night cycle which affects the type of monsters that appear as well as their ferocity. Monsters can attack what the player has built and lower the town's Base Level as a result. Furthermore, the player will periodically need to defend the town against a horde of monsters usually led by a boss monster.

The player character has both a health meter and a hunger bar, both of which can be restored through healing items and food items respectively. The game also features a crafting system by accessing workbenches. New crafting recipes can be discovered as the player progresses through the story as well as acquiring new resources.


  • A demo of the game was released in Japan on January 21, 2016 for both the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita consoles. Despite releasing on Playstation 3 in Japan, Dragon Quest Builders did not have a Playstation 3 demo.
  • For North America and Europe a demo was released on September 27, 2016 for both the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.
