Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Gets Surprise Port to Nintendo Switch

It has been proven time and time again that you can never tell what games will next be released from the floodgates when it comes to the Nintendo Switch. The reveal of Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen continues to showcase this trend with its surprise reveal for Nintendo’s platform. The RPG releases soon, with an April launch.

For those who are unfamiliar with Dragon’s Dogma, the game is an action RPG that originally released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012, earning decent acclaim and a good following. The Dark Arisen edition followed a year after the original, expanding upon the game with new content when it released in 2013. The game saw new life with another release for PS4 and Xbox One in 2017. Now, Nintendo fans are able to venture into the worlds of Dragon’s Dogma and face the harsh challenges that await them. The announcement came via the game’s official Twitter account.

The Dark Arisen expansion added plenty of new additions to the original game. The main event is Bitterblack Isle, an all-new dungeon which also included exclusive weapons and gear. Japanese voice acting was also added.

Six years later, Dragon’s Dogma remains to be a favorite among high-fantasy RPG fans. Now the cult classic will be readily available for players to take on the go with the Switch release.

Dragon’s Dogma will arrive on the Switch on April 23. Those who have never played the game or haven’t played in a while can look forward to another big game to sink their teeth into.
