Taking a page from Nordic Games’ book, Capcom announced recently that sales for the release of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen on PC may influence whether a sequel will be made.
Originally released in 2012 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Dragon’s Dogma received generally positive feedback for its setting, combat system, and unique take on multiplayer where you basically send your party members to another player’s game and, in turn, hire players called Pawns from other games.
But despite the positive reception, Capcom apparently needs more gentle coos of assurance from fans of the game. According to PC Gamer, the game’s producer, Minae Matsukawa, said the following during an interview:
“The Dragon’s Dogma development team members often talk about the possibility of a sequel. We’d love to hear the opinions and feedback from players of the upcoming PC port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, as that will increase the chances that we can look into the possibility of continuing the series.”
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is a re-release of the original game, containing all of the original content – including the original game’s DLC – plus an entirely new questline and region, and additional skill upgrades, monsters, weapons and armor. It originally released in 2013 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and a port for PC with improved visuals is being released on Friday for Steam.
” This is a game that already looks great on Xbox 360 and PS3, but increased draw distances and uncompressed textures on a powerful PC makes it look absolutely beautiful. It’s also a game that includes many elements inspired by classic RPGs released on the PC. Those reasons plus the requests from our fans make this a perfect fit for a PC release.”
