Capcom has released some new images of its upcoming action/adventure RPG, Dragon’s Dogma. The screens below are primarily of one of the most famous monsters in all of mythology, the cyclops. Despite his tremendous size, he looks to be a very agile opponent.
A fellow journalist at the Tokyo Game Show looked at me like I was nuts when I said that Dragon’s Dogma looked like some kind of combination of Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus. Upon playing it, however, I can say it definitely has some overlap with both of those games. The thrill of the hunt from Monster Hunter is there, and the monster battles, while not quite on the same scale as SotC, are an amazing thing to behold. The open-world gameplay has earned it a few comparisons to Bethesda RPG The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The game overall feels like an Elder Scrolls title with an emphasis on Monster Hunter-type searches for giant beasts that might well be pulled out of SotC. See for yourself if that’s a recipe for success when it hits stores next year.
