With Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen arriving on the PC January 15 fans are anticipating what updates will come with this version of the game. Today the developers have been discussing bringing the 2012 RPG to the PC.
In an interview with PC Gamer game producer Minae Matsukawa, Kento Kinoshita and PC producer Jon Airhart discussed the new version of the game. On the possibility of there being a sequel, Matsukawa revealed that they are looking for feedback from this port leading into the possibility of a sequel:
“We’d love to hear the opinions and feedback from players of the upcoming PC port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, as that will increase the chances that we can look into the possibility of continuing the series.”
On the Pawn system that Dragons Dogma used, and why it proved popular Kinoshita revealed:
“Probably a big reason for the popularity of pawns is that we really wanted to design them so that they were always making the player’s game experience more enjoyable, whether they were lost in a dungeon, battling enemies or exploring towns. Giving pawns different voices and personalities was the way we made them feel special and unique.”
Looking at the PC version, Jon Airhart discussed why they brought the game to the PC now:
“A PC version of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is something we had been planning for some time. We know it’s been a long wait, but we’ve brought the right team together to create the version of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen that our PC fans deserve.”
On why the game suited the PC style of gameplay he also added:
“This is a game that already looks great on Xbox 360 and PS3, but increased draw distances and uncompressed textures on a powerful PC makes it look absolutely beautiful. It’s also a game that includes many elements inspired by classic RPGs released on the PC. Those reasons plus the requests from our fans make this a perfect fit for a PC release.”
