First Dragon's Dogma 2 Details Swoop In

Following today's news that Dragon's Dogma has surpassed the 1 million sales mark and that a series is planned for Capcom's quirky RPG, the first details of the sequel have emerged straight from the game's creator, Hideaki Itsuno.

Apparently, Itsuno wants to bring a quest creation system that failed to make the cut for Dragon's Dogma to the follow-up, as well as an expanded game world. According to Itsuno, Dragon's Dogma's world of Gransys was two-thirds the size of what was originally intended and only 60-70% of his ideas made it into the game.

Other ideas include being able to run on top of enemies and jumping to grab hold of them, while quest creation would enable you to make objectives for your hero and accompanying pawns to embark upon and complete. Dragon's Dogma 2 is in development then, which means there'll likely be more details around the corner.

...I hope I'm not the only one who thought "WELL THIS IS A BIT SUDDEN" just after reading the sales mark reached?

Im all for it though don't get it me wrong, just...did they intentionally wait to say this or just odd timing?

@1: Nah, there were already plans to turn this into a franchise because it sold exceptional well.

I just hope this screen shot is a very early taster (not saying it looks bad) but given how recently the 1st was out and for an RPG, seeing work on a new game already seems far to early.

Surely this shouldn't be released until late 2013/early 2014 at the earliest.

@3: I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the fast travel option especially if the game is bigger. I mean the lack of fast travel actually made me go out and explore the world a lot more than what I would have had there been fast travel.

Anyways hope they include a larger variety of enemies especially of the larger enemies.

I thought I'd mind no fast travel, but I really don't... and I rarely pass on a battle, as the combat is so fun.

I just want a combat system like this with multiplayer co-op reminiscent of White Knight Chronicles or Monster Hunter. The only component DD lacks is co-op... that would have easily replaced me playing MH and WKC, heh.

At any rate, I just hope the sequel is A: for current gen consoles and B: has co-op, because this is one series I'll definitely support.

That said, I hope this article alludes to the substantial extension due to come out. I'd love to see more of Gransys and new gameplay mechanics, and would gladly support that, versus the previously released disc locked content. And, maybe with its new found success, as a new IP no less, Capcom will give Itsuno a little more free reign.

Awesome, it needs online co-op and a bigger map to explore. Maybe improve on the graphics a little bit too. Seeing as it'll be new and all. Only makes sense.
