Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen’s Reaper And Shadow Of The Colossus-Like Battle

By Spencer . February 11, 2013 . 1:10am

Capcom added new monsters for Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. The updated version has the Reaper and flaming Salamanders to fight. One of the key mechanics in Dragon’s Dogma is the grab button which lets you hang on monsters. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen has an enemy that looks like Voldo’s giant brother and it appears you climb up this creature similar to the way you grab monsters in Shadows of the Colossus.


Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen comes out on April 23 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Looks like Capcom have been taking a few pages from Dark Souls too. Which can only be a good thing for this series.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Actually its that both took inspiration from Berserk. :)

      • Randgriz

        True that.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          It’s Capcom, someone will find a reason to hate it regardless.

    • MooPoint

      I notice that too. Dark Arisen have Dark soul vibe in it.

      • TrevHead

        No complaints in that dept from me :)

  • Bloodios

    Man, this trailer makes me want to do another playthrough of Dark Souls again, this time dress like a badass reaper!

    Dat giant at the end sure does look like the giant guardians of Sen’s fortress from Dark Souls… Even the poster boy monster look like Zodd from Berserk. I’m getting chills and giggly.

      I know you’re just talking about the look/design of the giant at the end, but I actually found it a little lazy of the game design that it’s simply a Cyclops with new armor.

  • Pockystix

    I wonder if we’ll get the Berseker armor set, this time around

    Still eye-ing that witch’s hat. I hope it’s a proper hat, and actually shows hair as opposed to covering everything up with something like a hanging cloth on the sides. XD

    I hope there’s a large amount of new content, I really love dragon dogma, but I don’t want to pay 40$ for a 5-10 hour DLC.

    Demon’s Dogma :P

    • Demeanor

      Cool name for a sequel! :D

  • Namuro

    Wow, the Japanese voice surprised me a bit there, I totally forgot that there’s the Japanese language option in DA LOL. The game kinda loses its medieval feel without the Ye Olde English, but now it sounds like something out of anime, which is just what I like!

    I’m glad that they added in quite a lot of new monsters, especially Death, which looks quite intimidating and certainly huge! I still wish that they would make some really, really big bosses like in SotC though.

    So yeah, totally looking forward to this. I can’t wait to climb Death!
