Dragon Quest Builders details Myra continent, rail cars

Use the rail car to get around harsh environments.

Dragon Quest Builders

Square Enix has released a new set of Dragon Quest Builders details and screenshots, introducing the game’s third continent, Myra, and the rail cars you’ll use to get around.


Myra is a land flowing with magma and full of danger. You’ll come here after finishing up the game’s first two continents, Merkid and Rimuldar.

There is a monster stronghold in the lava zone. Break through its guards and aim for the interior. What kind of materials can you get here?

There are also strong monsters who can endure harsh environments. However, human beings can also stick it out. Trustworthy allies will fight alongside the hero.

By advancing through the story of Myra, you’ll be able to use the “hot springs” in town. There are even unique specialty cuisines you can only make in the hot springs.

Explore the Sea of Magma with the Rail Car

Simply walking in the lava zone will lower your health, so you’ll have a hard time if you’re only going by foot. But luckily, in Myra, you can easily move through dangerous areas with the rail car.

There are two types of rail cars: “wooden” and “iron.” To move around by rail car, players will need to lay down the tracks. They can go straight, curve, and incline.

Dragon Quest Builders will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita in Japan on January 28.
