Dragon Quest Builders 2 (ドラゴンクエストビルダーズ２ 破壊神シドーとからっぽの島) is the sequel to the 2016 sandbox game DQB. It was announced at the summer 2017 Dragon Quest festival, along with a brief preview video and a few small details addressed by Yuji Horii.
Unlike the first game,which takes place in an alternate reality of the original Dragon Quest, this installment is instead a sequel to Dragon Quest II, in which the remnants of Hargon's cult are attempting to make a comeback by kidnapping and destroying builders. You play as a Builder who washes up on a desert island where you meet a mysterious boy named Malroth. It is up to you and Malroth to survive on the island until rescue arrives.
