Any chance Square Enix will add cross-save between the PS4 and Vita versions of the game?
I got my PS4 copy yesterday and I really want to buy it for my Vita as well so I can playing when I'm not home (remote play is not very reliable when away from home), but if SQE is not adding cross-save I will not buy the Vita version because there is no point of starting the game over on the Vita when I already have progress saved on my PS4.

World of Final Fantasy will have cross-save, why can't Dragon Quest Builders? It's so upsetting that it doesn't at launch, to be completely honest.

14th Oct 2016, 11:35
I have passed on your question, Zapharus.

My DQB just arrived :D

World of Final Fantasy will have cross-save, why can't Dragon Quest Builders? It's so upsetting that it doesn't at launch, to be completely honest.

I recall Mr Fujimoto stating this was because the save data would have to contain the location of every single block, so it would be too big; but i can't find any article on this subject.

14th Oct 2016, 15:01
Update: There are currently no plans to implement cross saves to Dragon Quest Builders (however you can still share things built in the free build mode Terra Incognita across both Vita and PS4).

And stories about truth.
Driving Rufus in his limousine.
At sixty dollars a game.
It's all designed to blow our minds,
They make all kinds of generes.
And our minds will really be blown.
And we give you all kind of thrills.
A Mighty Blow! that'll getcha when you get your picture,
But the thrill I've never known,
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.
(Refrain)Is the thrill that'll getcha.

We gotta lotta of spikey haired, blue eyed heroes,When you get your picture,
Who do anything we say.
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

We got a genuine Lifestream guru who's teaching us a better way.
Rolling Stone...

Shinra's got all the power mako can buy.
Wanna see Dragon Quest on the cover.
Square Enix fans never have to be alone.
Our game libraries keep gettin richer and they got their picture,
Wanna buy five copies for Nomura.
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.
(Refrain 2X)

Wanna see Metal Slime's smiling face,

On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

Rock n Rollingly Yours,
The SquareEnix Troll
