The developer’s “10 Years of Dragon’s Dogma” video is available on the Dragon’s Dogma YouTube channel, while the next Dragon’s Dogma 2 logo is below.
Itsuno begins the video by telling him how classic pen-and-paper role-playing games have introduced him to the high-fantasy genre and role-playing games as a whole. After these early experiences captured his heart, Itsuno developed a passion for arcade and action titles, especially Capcom’s Street Fighter II combat. By 2000, Itsuno had released several titles for the Capcom arcade section and began compiling the first concepts for the game that would later become Dragon’s Dogma. However, that dream had to wait, as Itsuno was tasked with ending production of Devil May Cry 2 and its sequels Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry 4.

After completing production of Devil May Cry games, Itsuno has finally returned to his long-awaited project. Dragon’s Dogma’s distinct style of magical combat and ability to snatch formidable enemies already sets it apart from its contemporaries, but it’s the game’s unique “pawn system” that has helped cement its place among fan favorites. This particular system arose out of Itsuno’s desire to keep the game as a single-player experience, while allowing players to feel connected to one another by sharing their created and trained AI companions. Over the course of development, it was the production team’s trips to the UK that inspired the rolling hills and the architectural identity of the world for players to explore.
Following the presentation on the origins of Dragon’s Dogma, Itsuno gave fans a first look at what awaits them with the surprise reveal of Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Dogma Daigo Ikeno and Kenichi Suzuki have been working hard creating the sequel and we look forward to sharing more details in the future.
