Dragon Quest Builders 2 Finally Gets A Release Date In The West

Alongside the announcement of Dragon Quest XI for Switch, we also got confirmation for the western release of Dragon Quest Builders 2, which released in Japan late last year. It's coming to the West on July 12 for both Switch and PS4.

The news was confirmed during Nintendo's Direct presentation and subsequently on Sony and Square Enix social feeds. Though, for all the news from the Direct presentation, be sure to read our news roundup.

Much like the first game, Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes place in an alternate reality of an existing Dragon Quest game where the main antagonist defeated the heroes and left the world a barren wasteland; this one specifically focuses on Dragon Quest II. You play as a Builder rescued by a mysterious boy who's tasked with rebuilding the world back to its former glory.

James Cameron, the legendary movie director who made aquatic-themed movies like Titanic and The Abyss, has seen Aquaman and he's not exactly the biggest fan of it. In an interview with Yahoo! (via EW), Cameron said the movie is "great fun" but not very realistic.

"I could have never made that film because it requires this total dreamlike disconnection from any sense of physics or reality. It exists somewhere between a Greek mythic landscape and a fairy tale landscape. And people just kind of zoom around underwater because … they propel themselves mentally, I guess. I don't know. " he said. You buy it on its own terms."

Cameron, who himself has traveled to the bottom of the ocean, pointed out that he's spent "thousands" of hours underwater. He takes underwater storytelling very seriously.

Nintendo Switch is getting last year's critically acclaimed Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Ellusive Age.

Though, its official title is Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition

Previously confirmed for release in Japan, the Switch version is finally confirmed for the West sometime this Fall. Based on the trailer, the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI will retain all of the content from the original. However, there will be some fun extras too.

The Breaking Bad Movie Could Come To Netflix

A Breaking Bad movie is on the way, and now a new report says it may air on Netflix. According to Deadline, the movie will premiere first on Netflix and come to TV network AMC later.

AMC is the network that originally aired Breaking Bad, while it also hosts the spinoff Better Call Saul. It would be a reversal of sorts, as Breaking Bad ran on AMC first before coming to Netflix.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said in 2013 during his best drama acceptance speech at the Emmys that the show thrived thanks to Netflix. "I think Netflix kept us on the air," he said at the time, adding that he thought the show might have only had two seasons were it not for Netflix.
