DQB1 was a joy to play but there was a lot of room for improvement, but then I saw this video and it looks wonderful, much more than I expected


Anyone eyeing this ? There's an alluring thing about this that makes it more enjoyable for me than Minecraft, maybe it's the more casual/RPG oriented approach that draws me in but playing it on the switch is a blast. Shame to hear that the switch port suffers slowdowns though

I am and I've waited a long time for it at this point. I want to create a char and have fun with people online!

Yep, this seems to be addressing many of the shortcomings I had with the first game, even though I LOVE the first game. That said, I'm hyped. Going to try my hardest to convince my girlfriend to go coop with me. :p I don't think it'll take much convincing.

Yes, I liked the first game a lot. Haven't been keeping up on too much news about the new one cause I want to know very little about it. But I'm thinking maybe I should find out at least a little something. I remember not being crazy about the combat in the first one so if that is improved I'll be extremely happy

I bought the original the summer after it came out in the west and that's what I played that whole week. I was absolutely engrossed in DQB1. It's a great game and I hope DQB2 builds upon that. It's also the last game I'll pre-order and pick up before college, so I have one last new game to get immersed in.

Still need to buy the first one.

Demo was promising.

I am REALLY far behind on Dragon Quest.

Oh definitely, the first sandbox experience to perfectly balance world exploration, building and JRPG mechanics. It's hard to start up Creativerse again.

And OP...it's definitely the RPG part pulling you in. Combat seems to be fairly hollow for most games like this.

I really liked the first one, but it does that Square Enix thing where they bloat it out to the point that I don’t want any more of it for at least a few years.

Skipping the first to go directly to this one, Im excited too.

Smart, though I try to do this for every new IP.

Does this still force you to restart every chapter?
No, you have a separate area now that you continue to building up during and after the story is over.

Yeah I think my wife asks me about once a week even now we know the date. But I’m still more excited than even that.

YES! I loved the demo for the first game on Switch. I almost purchased the full game, but held off because 2 looked to have so many QOL improvements and online multiplayer.

I LOVE the first game and this looks to improve most all aspects the first faltered on. Day 0 - actually I have no idea when it’s rekeasing in the US - 2019??

Yeah I'm looking forward to it, I hope the gameplay changes are good enough to drown out the samey feeling I got from the first game though. I didn't like that you spent all that time building something up only to have it destroyed or moved. Felt too restricting.

Day zero already preordered the living shit outta it. First game was a blast. Zelda + Building + Cuteness + Dragon Ball Z.

Hearing that there's a permanent area that you build up across the campaign has me significantly more interested. I loved everything in the first game except for the fact that you had to reset upon moving to a new area.

A lot of people write this game and the original because "meh, Minecraft" but there's A LOT more to the games than that. The first one was incredible and I cannot wait for the sequel.

Really looking forward to this, as the original was one of my favorite games of the last few years. I really hope it holds on to all the things I liked about the first game.
