Captivate 11: Capcom's New IP Is Dragon's Dogma
Hey, you know something? Dragons are cool.
We had heard Capcom would announce a new IP at their Captivate event today, and so they have: it's Dragon's Dogma, which is described as a "unique action experience that blends exciting and fulfilling combat with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world." Well, that sounds pretty good; almost like a cross between Demon's Souls, The Elder Scrolls, and Devil May Cry. In fact, you may find both DMC and Resident Evil influences in the trailer below, because producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and director Hideaki Itsuno were directly involved with several DMC and RE iterations.
The game is built with an upgraded version of Capcom's MT Framework engine (used in both RE5 and Lost Planet 2) and it looks awfully promising. Dragon's Dogma is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and currently has a tentative release window of "early 2012. So, what do you think?
