Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

During today’s episode of Capcom TV, the first footage of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen on Switch was shown. We have the full recording below.

Nintendo Switch Online, Nintendo’s paid online service, is a requirement to play most Nintendo Switch games online – but not all of them. As it turns out, the recently announced Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be one of them. The Amazon listing for the game states the following:

Online Functionality – The iconic Pawn system comes to Nintendo Switch with online sharing abilities between Nintendo Accounts. (A Nintendo Switch Online membership is not required for online features).

Yesterday, Capcom announced plans to bring Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen to Switch. The company quickly confirmed that it will have a few different physical versions in Japan. Thankfully, the west won’t be entirely left out.

A number of Capcom’s releases as of late have been digital-only overseas. However, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen won’t be one of them. Amazon has opened pre-orders, revealing that there will in fact be a physical copy. You can reserve it here.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen launches April 23 on Switch.

Capcom revealed earlier today that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is heading to Switch. While a physical version is a bit of a question mark overseas, we have confirmation that a retail copy is planned for Japan.

There will actually be a few different physical versions. A standard copy will set buyers back 3,990 yen. There’s also a 4,990 yen Collector’s Package with a mini soundtrack and a (roughly) 25,000 yen Complete Edition with a pendant.


Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Switch, Capcom has revealed. A release is planned for April 23.

This marks the first time that Dragon’s Dogma will be appearing on a Nintendo console. It originally released in 2012, with the enhanced “Dark Arisen” following a year later. Capcom then started porting the game to newer platforms in 2017.
