News Dragon's Dogma Is Ten Years Old Today
Ten years ago today (that's the 22nd May, in case you're reading this in the future), Capcom released Dragon's Dogma on PS3. It was a dark fantasy action RPG that perhaps wouldn't get the praise that it deserved until years later, by which time it had established itself as something of a cult classic. Indeed, its original...
News Capcom Resurrects Dragon's Dogma with Major Expansion
Dragon’s Dogma was a pretty big success for Capcom in Japan, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that it has lined up a major expansion for release next year. The pack – dubbed Dark Arisen – will allow players to carry over their save data from the original game. And that, unfortunately, is pretty much everything we know. In the meantime,...

News Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon's Dogma Takes Off
Dragon’s Dogma got off to a roaring start in Japan, selling a whopping 302,040 units during its first week on sale. The impressive numbers make it the fastest selling new IP of the generation in the region. Sadly, the title did nothing to increase the PS3’s hardware sales. Sony’s home system mustered just 14k units, a minor...
News Dragon's Dogma Fires Up Online Quests
Capcom's upcoming Dragon's Dogma is a solo-only experience, but that doesn't mean it hasn't got intriguing online capabilities too.

Essentially multiple players and their parties can tackle the giant beast asynchronously, their attacks...

Preview Dragon's Dogma - The Sleeper Hit of 2012?
It's got scale
You'd think there'd be more excitement for Dragon's Dogma. Headed by staff responsible for Devil May Cry and Resident Evil, and with interest in RPGs at an all-time high thanks to Skyrim, the upcoming action RPG has generated very little heat in the past year: the game's official Twitter account has around 700 followers, and if not...

News Dragon's Dogma Takes to the Skies
Capcom wasn’t joking when it cited Shadow of the Colossus as an inspiration for Dragon’s Dogma. Indeed, this new trailer for the action RPG shows a group of warriors battling a Drake – a kind of mini dragon – in midair.

News Something Dragon's Dogma Related Is Set To Occur On January 31st

January 2012 has been something of a damp squib. Last year we were knee deep in game of the year contenders such as Mass Effect 2, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Dead Space 2. This year we delved into, erm, Zack Zero? But as February approaches, so does change. Seriously, if you haven't already pored over February and March's...
