Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen on Nintendo Switch Gets New Screenshots

Dragon's Dogma is coming to the Nintendo Switch as another expansive RPG players will have the chance to get lost in on the go or at home.

Capcom has released some new screenshots showing off their popular action RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen running on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out all of the new in-game shots down below.

Dark Arisen is an expanded version of Capcom’s original Dragon’s Dogma that came out on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012. It adds a hefty amount of extra content to the game. I’m personally interested in seeing how the game will ultimately run on the console-handheld hybrid.

If you’ve been looking for another meaty RPG to dive into on the Switch, Dark Arisen will definitely quench your craving. I reviewed the PS4 and Xbox One port back when it launched in 2017. While the game does feel a little clunky compared to other modern RPGs, it does have a lot of charm that has allowed it to garner a fan following that has been clamoring for a sequel from Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno.

Itsuno-san recently said that he had chosen to work on Devil May Cry 5 as opposed to Dragon’s Dogma 2. Hopefully, Itsuno-san will get the chance to explore the ideas he has for the Dragon’s Dogma sequel. I think the game would definitely benefit from some more modern improvements and I definitely would love to see it take advantage of the RE Engine that has been used on Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil VII: Biohazardand the remake of Resident Evil 2

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to the Nintendo Switch soon on April 23.
