Missed opportunity, Capcom – missed opportunity. As part of a livestream overnight, the publisher announced that a Sony executive will appear in upcoming MMO Dragon's Dogma Online – but it's not Kaz Hirai. Instead, it's Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Atsushi Morita who's been repurposed in the game – alongside jovial Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono.
The industry hotshots will appear as Pawns, who are "helper" characters that appear throughout the popular role-playing series. The game will release on 31st August in Japan, where it will be playable for free on Sony's consoles. There's no word on a Western release date yet, but we'd be disappointed if it didn't make its way overseas eventually.

I can see the similarity to Ono, but Morita looks nothing alike!
@get2sammyb that's like how I make myself in games - get the hairstyle and colour down, then randomise the facial features.
I've just met some of the team behind A Realm Reborn in FFXIV's 'The Rising'. In game of course.
A great little touch to commemorate its 2 years of success.
I hope it comes out west. It looks great.
The guy on the right looks like a Demon's Souls player character.
