The replayability, no matter how good the core gameplay is, lives and dies by how robust the community around the set of tools and how engaged they are in producing new levels. This is something I fear will be dead on arrival unless effort to connect the Switch community to other platforms is done in the future.
Ultimately, the success of Block Quest Maker lies in its community. With the game only readily available on Switch in Japan during my review period, I was greatly limited in the number of levels to choose from. Many of those that were playable were simple, forgettable affairs, which is a nice way of saying not worth the time it took me to complete them.
All told, though, a Minecraft-inspired aesthetic and a toolset that is simultaneously deceptively robust and a cinch to use combine to make for a charming and enjoyable title that the more creative players will get a real kick out of. It might not be Super Mario Maker, but BlockQuest Maker is a damn good alternative.
