Continuing the Tokyo Game Show 2023 broadcasts, Capcom held a showcase of its own today, September 21. Included were updates on the promising-looking Dragon’s Dogma 2, Exoprimal, Street Fighter 6, and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 steals the show

The highlight was undoubtedly a fresh look at narrative-driven action RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2. Director Hideaki Itsuno kicked things off by providing the first in-depth look at the deep explorable world of the game. The roughly 10-minute overview included an explanation of the Pawn AI companions, some of the available vocations, and the two nations players will explore throughout their journey. Itsuno also revealed the Magick Archer and Mystic Spearhand, two vocations that will only be available to the player-controlled Arisen. Dragon’s Dogma 2 releases on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. There’s no release date yet.
