A varied lineup of exciting games coming to PlayStation was revealed in the Capcom Showcase livestream! From a new look at the highly anticipated Dragon’s Dogma 2, to the reveal of the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, we featured games for all types of players.
Ascend, Arisen, and slay the dragon
The Capcom Showcase dove deeper into Dragon’s Dogma 2, which made its grand unveiling just a few weeks ago at the PlayStation Showcase. The game’s director, Hideaki Itsuno, explained a few of the game’s core elements, and revealed a bit about how the sequel is upping the ante on PlayStation 5.
At the heart of Dragon’s Dogma are two key features: the Pawn system, and best-in-class action-RPG combat. Pawns are AI controlled companions that join you on your adventures. You’ll take a main Pawn with you that can be customized to your heart’s content, and two others that can be hired from other players. With your party of up to four, you’ll enjoy companionship and camaraderie on your adventures.
Dragon’s Dogma 2’s action is all about choice. Wield swords, bows, or magick, it’s all up to you. Your chosen vocation determines how your Arisen plays in combat, and there’s a wide variety to choose from. Choice is also a key part of combat scenarios. You’ll constantly be challenged to try and take on situations in your own way, whether it’s seeing what happens when you destroy a bridge or toppling a monster over by pulling their leg.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 leverages Capcom’s RE Engine, resulting in a densely populated world about four times the size of the original, woven with the latest graphical technology, physics technology and character AI to immerse you in its fantasy world.
Two important characters that are featured in the key art will play an important role in the Arisen’s journey. UIrika, a woman who wields a bow and has a deep connection to the Arisen, and Nadinia, a high priestess of the new beastren race, will impact the Arisen’s destiny and help shape their fate.
A trio of Ace Attorney Games take the stand
Take that! Court is back in session with Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy.
Three mainline games in the Ace Attorney saga, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, arrive in one collection for the first time on PlayStation. Featuring improved HD visuals, new UI optimization, and localization in seven languages, this collection is the best way to experience the fourth, fifth, and sixth games in this beloved franchise.
Join Apollo Justice on his journey to bring order to the courts and bring an end to the dark age of the law when Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy launches on PS4 in early 2024.
A new look at Pragmata
The Capcom Showcase gave us the first sneak peek at gameplay for Pragmata – an original new IP in development at Capcom. The trailer showed off the game’s protagonists exploring the dystopian near-future lunar world and facing off with robotic foes.
Alongside a look at the world and characters of the game, the team also shared that the title’s release window has been postponed. Rest assured that the development team is hard at work on making an unforgettable experience that will be worth the wait.
Thanks for your patience, and we look forward to sharing more details in the future.
