This blew my mind when I saw it. The graphics, considering what is happening on screen are amazing. What is this really and what the fuck is the release date? [Updated] *Added official trailer.
Watching the video, you may think you are looking at a badass nice version of Monster Hunter or Breath of Fire. The description reads more like Dragon Age II. The video is sharp and that gameplay does look fun. The combat looks very similar to when I fought the High Dragon ... and raiped him. I love the Dragon Age for sure and this Capcom balls out style looks amazing. I can't wait to hear/see more about this.
From YouTube: Dragon's Dogma is an exciting new franchise which redefines the action genre from the team that produced some of Capcom's greatest action games. Set in a huge open world, Dragon's Dogma offers an exhilarating and fulfilling action combat game with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world. Alongside your party of three, you set out to track down and destroy a mysterious dragon. Your teammates fight independently of you, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from you and your actions. Dragon's Dogma offers a near endless opportunity to help develop partner characters to fight alongside you. With an epic story and incredible action, Dragon's Dogma is set to be one of Capcom's newest hit franchises.
Captivate 2011: Dragon's Dogma Gameplay
Later on that day... I just watched the video again and noticed that the archer's bow is glowing orange while he is shooting fire arrows. This all makes sense, we've seen the footage from the new Unreal 3 Engine. I don't even know what engine Dragon's Dogma is on, but of course developers are getting really slick with the tools they have been given. With this type of creativity we need the next generation consoles to come out.
