  • Aquarium Pack (Aug. 2, $9.99) – Check the mailbox on the Isle of Awakening to discover a fishing island with a net full of quests and characters to meet.

DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS game, combining both RPG and crafting gameplay.

DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 is one of several games that can be obtained using the newly announced Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers.
