Capcom has established a website celebrating the ten-year anniversary of Dragon’s Dogma, the cult fantasy R.P.G.
The website is awash with artwork and a message signed by one Hideaki Itsuno:
“Dragon’s Dogma, first released in 2012, is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Thank you, Arisen, for taking up arms and braving through the impossible challenges laid ahead of you. We are forever grateful for your support throughout the years and hope you will join us in this momentous celebration of Dragon’s Dogma!”
Itsuno is the director of the game, which has become something a cult hit in recent years. In fact, playing Elden Ring recently, I found it strangely reminiscent of Itsuno’s game.
It still isn’t clear why Capcom would go to the trouble of launching this website, though. Could something be in the works—a sequel, a remake?
In VideoGamer’s review of the original game, Jon Denton said:
“In many ways, Dragon’s Dogma is comparable to that other recent Japanese take on the Western RPG, Dark Souls. Both are defiantly obstinate, both offer physical, tangible combat, and both try out clever ways of interacting online. And both, of course, are definitely a matter of taste. Where Dark Souls divides people through design choices, though, Dragon’s Dogma’s will likely divide through design flaws.”
Capcom released Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen in 2013, which was an enhanced version, featuring all the game’s DLC.
