Capcom was down for Dragon’s Dogma 2 however Itsuno prioritized Satan Could Cry 5
Capcom’s one-of-a-kind monster-climbing, spell-slinging action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma by no means left our hearts, and with every new re-release, I’ve to surprise when a correct sequel will lastly land.
Unsurprisingly, the subject has come up throughout inner discussions — however not in the way in which you would possibly count on. Chatting with VG247, recreation director Hideaki Itsuno defined that he went to Capcom founder Kenzo Tsujimoto and mentioned “look, I wish to make both Satan Could Cry 5 or Dragon’s Dogma 2 subsequent.”
As relayed by Itsuno’s translator, “[Tsujimoto] mentioned ‘Okay, do no matter you need. Do whichever one you need.’ So I assumed, alright, y’know what… let’s do [Satan Could Cry 5]. So we did that.”
Did he make the suitable name? Simply when it comes to timing, I feel so, yeah. I’d completely dig into a possible Dragon’s Dogma sequel now or each time, however having a brand new Satan Could Cry proper after the Resident Evil 2 remake is such a killer one-two punch. It is solely February and 2019 is already a hell of a yr for Capcom.
For Itsuno’s half, he tells VG247 that he has “had concepts for Dragon’s Dogma 2.” The director feels that the unique recreation was “type of the largest success in my thoughts, the one I am most happy with” whereas Satan Could Cry 5 has been “the toughest to work on,” the one “that took essentially the most effort.”
“I’ve all the time bought possibly round 4 completely different titles in thoughts, possibly about 4 completely different concepts that I would like to make. However there is a distinction between the titles that I would like to make and the titles that I feel I ought to make subsequent. However right here we’re, we’re right here, and… I am already gearing up for my subsequent undertaking.”
I would like to see Capcom’s present scorching streak proceed with Dragon’s Dogma 2 within the not-too-distant future. A brand new recreation within the sequence post-Monster Hunter: World is a wildly thrilling prospect.
