In a shock announcement, Nintendo and Capcom have revealed that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is arriving on the console this April.

For those not in the know, Dragon's Dogma is an action, role-playing, hack-and-slash title that was developed and published by Capcom back in 2012. The 'Dark Arisen' edition followed shortly after, launching on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2013, and eventually finding its way to Xbox One and PS4 in 2017. Now, Nintendo players will get the chance to experience the game's open-world gameplay for the very first time.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen expanded upon the original release with new content including Bitterblack Isle (an extra dungeon), additional weapons and armour which were exclusive to that area, and full Japanese voice acting. The game received positive reviews upon release on other platforms, and has remained a fan-favourite ever since.


The game will launch on Nintendo Switch on 23rd April.
