Here's a turn up for the books: Netflix has announced a Dragon's Dogma anime.
Dragon's Dogma, of course, is Capcom's well-received action role-playing game that first launched in 2012. A Switch version is due out in April.
Netflix is working with CG company Sublimation on the anime. Here's the official blurb:
Surprise! Capcom role-player Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is getting a new lease of life on Nintendo Switch.
Do you still play Dragon's Dogma or Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen on Xbox 360? If so, hello, both of you. Capcom has bad news.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen comes out on 3rd October on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Dragon's Dogma is headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the first time this year in the scaly, fire-breathing shape of a new, remastered version.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Remastered, to give this version its full title, now has a 5th October release date in Japan.
Dark Arisen was the director's cut version of the initial game. Now, it has been given a further lick of visual polish for current-gen consoles.
UPDATE 11.40am: It sounds like we'll be seeing Dragon's Dogma on PS4 and Xbox One here in the UK as well. Capcom UK has just pointed us to this new Twitter post:
UPDATE: Well, that didn't last long. Capcom isn't about to announce a new Dragon's Dogma, it turns out, with the announcement instead pertaining to a mobile app aimed towards young girls. A leak on Famitsu, picked up by Siliconera, helped clear up the situation a little.
ORIGINAL STORY: Is Capcom going to announce an all-new Dragon's Dogma next Tuesday? A teaser for the enigmatically titled 'Project Palm' has just emerged, and the single-shot of a light-scarred hand has been enough to get some hopes up over on NeoGAF where links have been made to Capcom's much-loved action RPG which recently got the remaster treatment on PC.
There's certainly reason for some hope - the pawns within Dragon's Dogma, emotionless characters that follow the player character and are central to the game's plot, carry marks across their palms that look awfully similar to that featured in the teaser image - but as ever it's best to exercise some caution. After all, mobile games also fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, so this could be far from a full-blown Dragon's Dogma sequel.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, the expanded version of Capcom's action-RPG, is heading to PC on 15th January.
Capcom has announced a PC port of action role-playing game Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.
A trademark for something called Dragon's Dogma Online has been spotted on the OHIM (Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market) website.
There's an Easter sale on the Xbox Live Marketplace that runs until 14th April.
Capcom expects to sell 1.2 million copies of Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3.
The figure was revealed in a document released alongside the Japanese company's financial report for the first half of the financial year ending 31st March 2014.
The 1.2 million figure is below lifetime sales for previous games in the open world zombie kill 'em up series: 2006 Xbox 360 game Dead Rising shifted 1.8 million, and 2010 sequel Dead Rising 2, which launched on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, has sold 2.7 million. It should be noted, however, that as an Xbox One exclusive launch title, Dead Rising 3 has a limited install base to sell to.
Capcom is preparing to slash its European operation by more than half, according to the UK trade magazine MCV. "More than half of the European arm faces redundancy, with a number of jobs set to merge," reads the report.
Over at the EU PlayStation Blog Sony has announced the new games PlayStation Plus subscribers can download free for October - and it's an impressive list.
UPDATE: Dragon's Dogma Quest may still appear in Europe and North America, Capcom has told Eurogamer.
The recent title update for open world fantasy role-playing game Dragon's Dogma has been found to corrupt game saves, Capcom has warned.
In some cases the patch caused Dragon's Dogma and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen save date to become corrupted, meaning the game will no longer save or load progress, the company wrote in a post on Capcom Unity.
It suggested players copy their existing save data to an external storage device or the cloud whenever possible, "especially if you are picking up the game for the first time in awhile or switching over to Dark Arisen for the first time".
Mouldy-looking Dead Island: Riptide has wormed its way to the top of the UK all-formats chart despite selling less than half the launch week sales of its predecessor.
Lost Planet 3 has been delayed two months to the end of August.
