Square Enix has released some new media for two upcoming Dragon Quest titles in Japan. First, there are some initial screenshots of the new spin-off title, Dragon Quest Builders, which looks to draw heavy inspiration from Minecraft. Dragon Quest Builders is due to be released in Winter 2015 in Japan for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, with no news on a possible western release at this point.
The second batch of screenshots are for the upcoming 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VIII. These images are focused on the game's new Camera Mode and Photograph Quests that were revealed last week. Dragon Quest VIII 3DS is due to be released in Japan on August 27, 2015, and also has no news to report regarding a localisation.
