All Articles: Dragon’s Dogma
Capcom has announced plans to re-release Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen for the PS4 and Xbox One this Fall, adding yet another remaster to the publisher’s current-generation catalog.
Dragon’s Dogma was originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012, with the Dark Arisen expansion (and a new retail bundle containing both adventures) following a year later. The action RPG is reminiscent of other “monster hunting” games that have gained popularity in recent years, and the Capcom-Unity blog has more details about Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen’s upcoming re-release, as well as a few screenshots:
Well met, Arisens! ‘Tis a grand time of celebration: Dragon’s Dogma was originally released five years ago this week, and we are bringing the beloved Action RPG experience of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall!
Featuring a variety of unique classes, a robust system of AI-controlled companions called Pawns and intense real-time combat from the designers behind the Devil May Cry series, this epic masterwork took our hearts by surprise and quickly became a fan-favorite.
Capcom-Unity is also hosting a livestream replay of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, and you can watch it on their Twitch channel beginning at 6:00 PM (Eastern Time) today.
Another big day for the PlayStation Store as indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, zombie melee-er Dead Island: Riptide, and movie tie-in Star Trek are now available to purchase with your download dollars. Like the rest of the games in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, Thomas Was Alone is a Cross-Buy title, meaning you’ll be able to pick up the PSN and Vita versions in the same download.
Also available this week is Ubisoft’s World War II dogfighter, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII; the latest game in the Soul Calibur series, Soul Calibur V; Capcom’s standalone Dragon’s Dogma expansion, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen; and the retro shooter God Mode.
Finally this week, Sony has added a pair of Vita games, the ninja-riffic Draw Slasher and the ridiculously titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R… I mean, seriously now… there are four extra modifiers in that title. Even Capcom won’t go that far.
Hit the jump for more details on all of these games and a few others (including a new PSP game!). And be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)
April is almost over and there’s plenty of new games scheduled to be released this week, including…
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, a 3DS prequel to Lego City Undercover that’s available in stores and the 3DS eShop today.
Available Tuesday is Deep Silver’s latest tale of zombies in paradise, Dead Island: Riptide (PC, PS3, Xbox 360). Also available is Star Trek (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), Namco Bandai’s video game prequel to next month’s Star Trek Into Darkness, and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3, Xbox 360), Capcom’s standalone expansion to last year’s Dragon’s Dogma.
Capcom plans to talk about a ton of games at this year’s PAX East show, including two unannounced projects! The two games will be unveiled during the “World of Capcom” panel scheduled for Friday, March 22 at 12 Noon.
If you’ve got PAX East tickets and you miss the panel, be sure to swing by their booth as Darkstalkers Resurrection, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, Remember Me and Lost Planet 3 will all be playable on the show floor.
PAX East 2013 will be held March 22-24 in Boston and if you don’t have tickets, you’re too late. They officially sold out a day or two ago.
Capcom is bringing Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 23. The standalone expansion will also bring a wide variety of new enemies to the game world and Capcom has highlighted a few of them in the new trailer above.
You can read more about the enemies of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen over at the Capcom-Unity blog.
Whether it’s pride in a new property doing well or Capcom being Capcom, the publisher has big plans for the future of Dragon’s Dogma. The company announced that two new game modes will be available to download by the end of the year: Hard Mode and Speedrun Mode. Best of all, both modes will be free.
Looking further ahead, Capcom announced that the first “major expansion” for the game will be released in 2013. Capcom is still keeping the details close to their chest (they wouldn’t even confirm if it’ll be DLC or a retail release), but they did reveal that it’ll be titled Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. They also unveiled the trailer embedded above, so check it out.
Capcom has announced they’ve shipped over one million copies of their dragon-slaying action RPG, Dragon’s Dogma, worldwide.
“Dragon’s Dogma set a new record in Japan for sales volume of an entirely new brand in its first week for releases during the past decade. Worldwide shipments have surpassed one million. As a result, Dragon’s Dogma has become Capcom’s 55th title to top the one million level, demonstrating once again that Capcom ranks among the world’s leading game producers in terms of technical and development skills.”
Because of its success, the publisher also announced plans to sequelize Dragon’s Dogma right away, so be on the lookout for Dragon’s Dogma 2 sometime in the near future.
Can you guess the best-selling game of May 2012 according to The NPD Group’s monthly calculations? Go on, guess, it’s not really a mystery… The best-selling game of May 2012 was Blizzard’s Diablo III.
Diablo III’s loot frenzy was the lone bright spot for the game industry this month as total sales were down 28% from May 2011 with console hardware taking the biggest hit (a 39% drop).
But that’s not for lack of trying. A ton of new releases broke into the top ten this month including Max Payne 3 (#2), Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (#3), Sniper Elite V2 (#7), and Dragon’s Dogma (#9). But I guess they didn’t put up the sales numbers to compete with last May’s biggest game, L.A. Noire.
The complete top ten can be found after the break. (more…)
