Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Dragon Quest Builders is a Minecraft clone with RPG features

The Vita is already getting a DQ game in the form of Dragon Quest Heroes II, but Square's coming on strong with a Minecraft clone/rip-off in the form of Dragon Quest Builders. It will also land on PS4 and PS3, so there's hope for some Cross Play.

There's only a teaser site, and a single image for now. I don't see a Mojang logo, so its not a licensed version - what are the chances of a Microsoft law suit?

I guess making a proper RPG in this type of blocky environment is differentiation enough, but surely smarter developers will be moving on from the block-based approach and coming up with a new angle?
