Capcom is the undisputed king when it comes to porting preexisting games to new consoles, so it doesn’t exactly come as a surprise that they’re bringing Dragon’s Dogma to PS4 and Xbox One. In other news, the sun rises in the East and sets in the West.
Yeah, it may not be surprising news, but Dragon’s Dogma was such a damn fine game that we’re happy about it nonetheless. It hits current consoles on October 3rd in the form of the expanded Dark Arisen edition, which we loved when we reviewed the PC version. Hideaki Itsuno, who is best known for his work on the Devil May Cry series, was the game’s director.
The M-rated dark fantasy JRPG takes place within the province of Gransys, a huge open-world environment filled with a ton of shit to see and do in addition to the roughly 40-hour main quest. In terms of difficultly, while it’s not as hardcore as Dark Souls, it’s still more punishing than, say, Skyrim; and you’d better be ready to die a lot.
Rise and answer the call! Gransys is in dire need of you! Step into the world of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 3rd.
