Dragon''s Dogma has been relaunched for a 10th Anniversary website, which was once again relaunched in 2012.
Doesn''t it seem like it was that long ago, does it? We''re really old now.
The Hideaki Itsuno and Hiroyuki Kobayashi-lead game was Capcom''s foray into the terrifyingly competitive world of the big-budget action-RPG, which it was a hit among users. The game delivered over 1 million copies within its first month of release and over 1.3 million units lifetime.
A new version of Dragon''s Dogma: Dark Arisen was released for the game''s original consoles in 2013, which was then then available to PC in 2017, and Nintendo Switch in 2019. It has sold more than 4 million units as of press time.
Players in the open-world game are in a fantasy environment where a dragon has descended upon a village to steal the chosen one''s heart. After having his heart yanked out by a dragon, our hero must search out the dragon to regain it. You and three AI partners will be tasked with rescue villagers, killing large mythological creatures such as a Hydra and a Gryphon, and discovering why the hero is the dragon''s chosen chap.
A sequel was reportedly underway in 2012, with Hideaki claiming that only 60 percent of his initial ideas for the original made it into the final game. One of these ideas was quest creation, and perhaps a bigger game world because the original only contained two-thirds of what Hideaki intended.
Hideaki did not begin working on Devil May Cry 5, which was later released in early 2019. He then went to work on his next project. Could it be Dragon''s Dogma 2? At this point, only Capcom and Hideaki know, but a sequel might be ideal. It''s a good idea, indeed. Maybe the Anniversary website is a stepping stone to an announcement. Let''s hope.
We''ll have to make sure we''re not playing the game again, or giving the Dogma anime series a watch on Netflix pana then.
