Three of the four DLC packs will be paid, while a Season Pass will also be available.
With pre-orders for Dragon Quest Builders 2 now live on the European Nintendo Switch eShop (via Nintendo Life), details about its DLC packs have gone live. The builder-slash-RPG will have four DLC packs in total, of which three will be paid. All three will be purchasable separately, but will also be sold together in a Season Pass.
The first DLC, titled Hotto Stuff Pack, will be priced at €5.99 and release on July 26. The pack will contain 40 recipes for structures and decorations based on the Hotto Steppe, which fans of Dragon Quest 11 will recognize. The pack will also bring an additional island, where players will be able to find resources needed to build the recipes.
The Aquarium Pack will release on August 2 and retail for €9.99, and will add a new fishing island to the game. The island will house new quests and characters, and also give players access to a fishing rod to catch 40 new species of fish. The pack will also include new customizations, as well as new clothing options, such as swimwear and straw hats.
The final paid DLC, the Modernist Pack, will come out on August 9 and be sold for €9.99. It will bring 70 new recipes to construct “modern-looking structures”, such as “a fashionable luxury hotel”. In addition, the pack will also include new hairstyles and clothing options.
There will also be a free DLC pack, called the Knickknack Pack. Releasing on July 26 alongside the first paid DLC pack, it will include recipes for Pretty Paddle, Celebratory Soup, and Ornate Adornment.
The Season Pass containing all paid DLCs will retail for £18.99. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is out on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch on July 12. In Japan, the game also received a free post-game island, so we can presumably expect that to be included in the western release as well.
