Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Coming to Switch This April

But still no sequel…

In a surprise announcement, Capcom revealed today that the action RPG Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Nintendo Switch. The news came from the official Capcom Twitter account and an adjoining YouTube trailer. It'll set players back a cool $29.99 and it's coming on April 23, 2019.

The original Dragon's Dogma was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in May 2012, developed by Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 3, and Devil May Cry 4 director Hideaki Itsuno. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen came out just under a year later, adding all the previously-released downloadable content. Since then, Capcom has slowly re-released the title on various platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and now Nintendo Switch.

Long ago, I said if publishers and developers aren't putting their marginally popular titles from the previous generation on the Switch, then they're doing something wrong. Capcom is doing something very right.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen joins the previous Resident Evil: Revelations Collection and the upcoming Onimusha: Warlords. Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 are also coming to the platform some time this year.
