Dragon Quest Builders video is very, very Minecraft

Square just showed off a few minutes video of Dragon Quest Builders on its live event video (hopefully a replay will appear soon). In the clips we have some mining, some home building and a little bit of combat.

There's also what looks like NPCs to live and work in your village, where it seems you can build Inns and other useful social structures.

All of it was welded into the Minecraft template, down to the crafting table, which doesn't scream of originality. At the same event, Dragon Quest Heroes II was dated for next spring.

Catch the replay now, DQ Builders starts around the 28 minute mark!
