Ironically not pictured: a dragon

Is Capcom’s mysterious open-world RPG the sleeper hit of 2012 like our Dragon’s Dogma preview pondered earlier today? You’ll be able to formulate your own opinion next week, when a downloadable demo for the fantasy title launches on the PlayStation Store.

Due for release on 24th April (and a day later in Europe), the demo will allow you to sample two character classes from the full game across two challenging encounters against the deadly Chimera and fierce Griffin.

The demo will include full access to the game’s robust character creation suite, allowing you to import any characters and pawns you create into the full release in late May. Saving time is essential when you’ve got a heart-stealing dragon to chase, y'know?
