Sharpen those swords and shine up your shields, Capcom’s port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is finally here for the Nintendo Switch.
The dark, arisen
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen got a decent amount of praise when it first released, on the Xbox One and PS4. I think it’d be safe to say though that it wasn’t exactly a blockbuster.
From the looks of the Nintendo Switch launch trailer, Dark Arisen looks like a cross between Monster Hunter, Dungeons & Dragons, and Elder Scrolls. Oh, and it’s got some wicked guitar riffs.
Become the Arisen, the last in a line of warriors burdened with defending the realm of Gransys against a cataclysmic cycle of ruin and rebirth. Arisen do not carry this responsibility alone, as they can create and recruit skilled AI companions known as Pawns to assist in their journey. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen entices players to explore a flexible and rewarding combat system, complete with a wide range of devastating skills and potent magicks for tackling any obstacle. Whether beheading Hydrae, grappling Griffins or blinding a Cyclops, each of the game’s nine vocations offer unique playstyles for players to experiment and master.Capcom press release
