Nintendo Download: Guess “Hoo” is Coming to Nintendo Switch This Week!

Dragon Quest Builders comes to the Switch this week, along with Owlboy, Aegis Defenders, and Radiant Historia for the 3DS.


I’m not a fan of Dragon Quest. Well, past the original NES game anyway, I was a monster fan of that. That said though, there’s a part two- I’m not a fan of Minecraft either. So I am in no way in any position to say that Dragon Quest Builders looks exactly like Minecraft. But it does. So there.

And if you’re not into what DQB has to offer, then you might dig what one of the other titles has in store this week. It’s actually a pretty full week, so there are more than a few titles to choose from. That includes a fairly large release on the 3DS in Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology.
