During Capcom’s 10th anniversary Dragon’s Dogma livestream, the company revealed a sequel, Dragon’s Dogma 2, which is currently in development.

Capcom launched a 10th-anniversary website last month detailing the history of the series, starting from April 2012 to the Netflix anime series in 2020. Most of this new video is reflecting on the series’ history too, but at the end, Hidetaki Itsuno confirms that a sequel will join the franchise’s history.

10 Years of Dragon's Dogma

“Sorry to have kept you waiting,” Istuno said. “Dragon’s Dogma 2 is currently in development. Everyone in the development team is hard at work creating a game that we hope you will enjoy. Please look forward to it.”

That isn’t much to go on, but it’s a nice treat for Dragon’s Dogma fans who were hoping that something substantial would come out of the 10th-anniversary celebrations. The press release doesn’t reveal much more about the games, including platforms or a release date. It simply just reaffirms that Itsuno, Art Director Daigo Ikeno, and Project Lead Kenichi Suzuki are all working on Dragon’s Dogma 2. However, the game will be utilizing the RE Engine, which Capcom also used for titles like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil Village.

There was some speculation that a potential sequel would have been revealed during Summer Game Fest, but Capcom waited to show it off until now. Furthermore, during Capcom’s showcase earlier this week, it wasn’t revealed there either. However, it did announce the live stream that would eventually confirm the sequel.

Dragon’s Dogma first launched in May 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It later came to PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in April 2017 and Nintendo Switch in 2019 in an enhanced form called Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is without a release date.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom gives Zelda her starring role
Zelda running from a purple void

Nintendo revealed a brand new Zelda title called The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom during the June Nintendo Direct. This is the latest 2D entry in the series following the remake of Link's Awakening in 2019 and it will be released on September 26 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

Instead of another remake of a classic Zelda title, which developer Grezzo is most known for, Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom was revealed as an entirely new entry in the series. Using the same art style as Link's Awakening, Echoes of Wisdom will finally allow players to go on an adventure playing as Zelda rather than Link.

Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake might divide retro and modern RPG fans
An RPG party stands in a throne room in Dragon Quest 3: HD-2D Remake.

After a long wait, Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake is finally coming to PC and consoles -- and yes, that’s its official title. The NES revival launches on November 14 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. An HD-2D remake of Dragon Quest 1 and 2 is set to follow in 2025.

Ahead of its release date reveal during today’s Nintendo Direct, I got a deeper look into all the changes coming to the game, as well as a bit of hands-on playtime. Along with making some key quality of life tweaks, the remake also features some radical changes to story and structure that will bridge it to the first two Dragon Quest games (both of which happen after 3, chronologically). Those modern touches are paired with very faithful decisions that leave the core combat of the original surprisingly untouched – a move that may divide purists and newer RPG fans.
Modern meets retro
First revealed in 2021, Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D remaster is a project from Octopath Traveler 2 studio Team Asano and Artdink. We already knew that it would give an NES classic a fresh look thanks to Team Asano's signature HD-2D art style, but details on the game have been scarce over the past few years. That seemed surprising for a remake like this, but it turns out that the project is much more ambitious than originally advertised.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2: Heart of Chornobyl: release date predictions, trailers, gameplay

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl is the next hotly anticipated entry in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise. The game is releasing over 13 years after the last entry in the series, and it's making its debut on consoles as an Xbox Series X exclusive.

Developer GSC Game World was forced to delay this title after the Russian invasion of Ukraine began and uprooted the team's lives. Despite the hardships and tragedy every member of the team no doubt suffered, and all the sacrifices they made, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl was not abandoned and the team pushed on to continue developing the game.
