Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen announced for 2013

Seems to be an expansion, possibly. Details are still very foggy at best. What has been confirmed is that your save games will transfer, so keep those handy. More details on Dark Arisen will be announced soon but fans of Dragon’s Dogma should be happy to know that Capcom is doubling down on the series. 

Capcom hints at Dragon’s Dogma sequel

In the latest Famitsu, Capcom’s Hideaki Itsuno the man behind Dragon’s Dogma proudly stated that he really wants to make a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma. The current DD’s world is just two-thirds of the idea he had in mind, and there are plenty of things he’d still like to do with the series. Sounds good to us, Dragon’s Dogma has been a surprise hit for Capcom and more open-world action-RPGs are always welcome.

Dragon’s Dogma ships 1 million copies, going to be a major franchise going forward

Good news for those enjoying the bloody good Dragon’s Dogma. Capcom has announced the title has shipped 1 million copies and plans for the new IP to become a big new franchise for the developer. I say bring it on! Dragon’s Dogma has some rather questionable design decisions that rear their head every now and again but it’s easy to forget thanks to its moments of sheer genius implementation of combat and enemy encounters. It’s a solid base for a hell of a sequel… hopefully on next-gen consoles.

Three hours of solid Dragon’s Dogma tonight is easily getting the message across; I am loving the hell out of this game. The more I delve into this world the more its mechanics start to make sense and just feel right. The combat is constantly getting deeper and it shares the same sense of accomplishment that I loved so much about Dark Souls. Finally landing that final blow on a Cyclops after a 15 min fight feels so damn good. Dragon’s Dogma is a throwback to when video games weren’t that intricate on story (not it doesn’t have one) but amazingly deep in gameplay. It’s an old fashion video game that doesn’t hold your hand but lets you figure it out for yourself, and rewards your time sink making you feel you’ve actually accomplished something. Already 12 hours in, I can’t wait to see how I feel about the game once I’ve put in a good 30.
