Before Dragon Quest XI gets its enhanced port to Switch, the sequel to the surprisingly brilliant Builders will be hitting store shelves in July. This counts for digital storefronts, too, and if you’re going that route you can now pre-purchase the game. Better yet, it’s part of the new Nintendo Switch Game Voucher program.
Keen builders can also purchase the Season Pass, featuring new locations, recipes, quests and more, via #eShop as well.

Players will also get “special in-game bonuses” for pre-purchasing, though those aren’t specified.
The season pass is also available for pre-purchase too, which bundles three packs of DLC for $20.99, around $5 cheaper than if you bought all the packs separately. Here’s the details for those, as well as the free DLC.
- Knickknack Pack (July 26, Free) – This free pack includes three recipes to create a Pretty Paddle, Celebratory Soup and Ornate Adornment so players can celebrate every New Year with some Hotto flair.
- Hotto Stuff Pack (July 26, $5.99) – This pack includes more than 40 recipes to design and decorate structures that look similar to The Hotto Steppe – a popular resting area in a distant land where visitors take a sweat break from their weary travels. Players will also get access to an additional island to gather material that they’ll need to build these recipes.
- 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. Learn how to catch 40 different fish that can be added to a DIY aquarium. Unlock the fishing rod as well as customization options, including swimwear, straw hats and a ponytail hairstyle.
- Modernist Pack (Aug. 9, $9.99) – This pack includes more than 70 different recipes to construct modern-looking structures, as well as additional hairstyles and clothing. Players can take their architectural skills to the next level by building a fashionable luxury hotel.
The game will launch July 12th, while the DLC will arrive a few weeks later on July 26th.
