Dragon's Dogma, Capcom's action RPG could be seen as a risk outside of Japan, but in its homeland the game is assured success, producer Hideaki Itsuno has told VideoGamer.com.
well they sold one here in the states at least. ill be picking ti up day 1, it looks great
Ye same I am buying it day one, from all the videos it just looks like my sort of game.
agreed. everytime i see it i find it more impressive.
the animations are possibly the best ive ever seen, the art direction is excellent and the game-play reminds me of a slightly faster, deeper dark souls
As much as Capcom sucks, this looks like the most promising IP that has come out from them in a while. To me this can do it,because this literally looks like Monster Hunters HD mixed with Demon Souls. I am so buying this game. Won't support Capcom though when it comes to DLC
Capcom? Yeah no thanx. I've learnt my lesson.
you know capcom isn't one person. Why punish the developer For the publishers greedy acts on OTHER games that have nothing to do with dd?
@dark-hollow: when Capcom is the developer and the publisher, it's completely logical to punish them as a whole. That being said, this game doesn't look like anything typical to Capcom, so I'm likely going to get it because I'm liking what I see. Hopefully there will not be any DLC issues like with the rest of Capcom's games.
@FinancialGamer I kind of agree with you. I really do not trust Capcom from what they have pulled on every game, week after week, this generation. I do have to say the game look really good though. The frame rate seems a bit choppy though. I will wait to see if I buy it. I do hope to play a demo though.
Going global is a mistake because it leads to generic titles like this one....... Its a pathetic western cash grab at monster hunter which has far more whimsy and soul than this title....... There isnt a chance it sells 1 million in any region, let alone japan @ BELOW the art style is completely generic, and you dont think action games with a realism style have been done before? Theres isnt even a sliver of a chance it sells 1 million in japan. I expect the first week to be somewhere between 50 and 100k. Thats reasonable......... If they really want to sell millions worldwide, keep doing monster hunters, which are far better games. This just looks like a stiff western knock off....... And honestly, everyone should hope this doesnt sell. It will teach capcom that they cant keep doing shady things, making games the fans just dont ask for, or sellout ( which theyve done) All the talent from capcom has bleed out the last 10 years and now they are doing other things. The devs left at capcom think globalization is good, but in reality it leads to garbage like this title.
Generic ? if you know that many similar titles by all mean please point them out so i could buy them all -_- . Last pure and good action fantasy game i saw were stuff like LOTR eons ago ... the mediocre Trinity Zill wich is more of an rpg anyway , the awful Knight Contract , Nier and Hunted ... With hardly any of them looking the same and having the same gameplay features Or are you just sounding off because of the artstyle ? Wich is this case is hardly such a widespread one among japanese action title , or even western ones for that matter . I can understand you not liking the game , but calling it generic is silly . Anyway i disagree , it will easily get that first million . Looking forward to that next action game from the guy wich delivered the still excellent dmc3-4 . PS : If you're going to call that generic looking , then prepare to call Berserk , Lodoss and Demon's Souls generic too .
demon souls is a good game, watching vids of this made me want to vomit personally. Its going to sell well, but not 1 mil well in any region. Also that globalization statement scares me because you can say goodbye to there most unique and innovative titles like okami, megaman, resident evil, pheonix wright, amongst other things and hello realism shooter, realism shooter, realim action game, realism shooter, rinse and repeat.
@EDIT It's a japanese take at the traditional heroic fantasy style , i see nothing wrong with that . I never said it's was "never done" , but stop pretending it's a common occurence and generic . You aint even able to name a recent list i notice , and go on forever on monster hunter . As if , even if you were right , them doing a variation upon their own franchise was a bad thing to begin with . The setting might be traditional , but their take , artstyle wise is different enough for it to show . Just like Demon Souls having a traditional setting wont suddenly make it looks like oblivion . As for sales , you stated it wont reach a million anywhere , i'm not betting on japan necessarily , but i easily bet it will . The game is getting more and more notice as it gets more exposure ... It's quite ideally placed as a may release , and its being heavily tied with that re6 demo wich will help .
I would love the kind of money capcom is paying you to drink there koolaid. It will not sell 1 million in any region, nor will it sell 10 million worldwide............ thats ridiculous. fyi the art style and general graphical tone is exactly the same thing in any western game which uses a realistic style. The kind that makes me go meh
And how how much do you want to lay off me ? We dont have to agree you know , so let's just respecfully disagree . I dont waste my timing throwing the word ridiculous at your rant . I see a good art direction you just dont . When i look at stuff like oblivion and skyrim , the current go to fantasy stuff , I dont see nearly the same character design or monster design . I anything i've always found it mediocre in those two without mods . While here i find enough remnant of the japanese artstyles to find it better . Obviously i'm just talking design here . I see a japanese take on traditional fantasy realistic settings , something hardly that common. Again i ask , if your going to call that generic , what about anything else using the same kind of settings with a japanese perspective ? And where are those list of similar japanese games ?
Good posts Baka-akaB, well said.
Was always day one for this game , and everytime a new trailer pops in , it's better , so of course i'm in .
I can't wait to use someones Pawn or visa versa.
10 million worldwide? Is this guy high? Of course you should aim high but you should also have somewhat realistic goals.
he might be high on kelp
guarantee... I hope, just gotta make sure my finances are right.
Ive watched as much gameplay as I could on this title and from what ive seen, it looks to be a winner. The art style is a hybrid between the medieval inspirations of the west and the more clean and slightly whimsical look of Japans development tendencies. The heavy emphesis on the action (Not too much) as well as pawn system, combined with the beautiful and awesome bosses shown thus far and the Shadow of the colossus style of boss takedowns has me intrested as hell. People never expected Demons Souls to do so well and frankly, this might be the first Capcom title I buy new in years....
Yeah many here threw the same kind of hollow argument at DS at first , and now can't stop worshipping it . Generic crap was actually thrown at it , and i wouldnt be surprised by the very same folks holding it now in high esteem . No energy nor will to hunt posts back , so its a moot point i guess Time will tell , but i have little doubt that a game that lookst that interesting and well done , alonside Capcom's big marketing push couldnt be a good seller .
A million sales? lmfao! No, it won't. I can guarantee you it won't even come close to that.
Seems like they have it backwards. It looks like the type of game western gamers will eat up and more iffy in japan (although they love MH and i get that vibe from it). Either way it looks fantastic and i will def support this new ip.
Crapcom = No buy
I don't like Capcom, but this game actually looks very interesting. Quite different/unique in the gameplay department from other open like RPG games currently.
Im a bit interested in this game after seeing it at wondercon. seems a bit like skyrim though. im a bit ify but might give it a shot :)
