A hybrid port

Capcom's daring RPG open world project is revived once more on modern tech. The MT Framework engine behind Dragon's Dogma shows its limits in scalability compared to newer solutions, but Switch gets a decent 30fps conversion. Next to PS4 its textures are identical - and an upgrade over PS3's - while certain aspects of the game show the system's struggling with its open-ended design.

For whatever reason, Capcom seems to be pushing Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen pretty hard in Japan. I guess they believe the game could find a brand new audience on Switch, and really break through to something larger.

To go along with the promo videos, Capcom has also kicked off a sale for the original Dragon's Dogma, as well as the Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen soundtracks on iTunes and other platforms. It seems this sale will only last until May 8th, 2019.

Capcom is also running a special Twitter campaign for Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. Those in Japan who participate have a chance to win a t-shirt, sticker set, or a special poster signed by members of the dev team.

Finally, the Capcom Cafe is going to have a special limited-time menu to promote Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. The following items will be available until May 29th, 2019.
