Dragon's Dogma is an underrated action role-playing game. While its unique companion pawn system and flashy magical abilities have gained a cult following over the years, it's safe to say that the franchise hasn't yet achieved general commercial success. However, that could all change with Dragon's Dogma 2, which looks absolutely incredible according to the first gameplay trailer we saw during the latest PlayStation Showcase.

Dragon's Dogma 2 was originally announced during Capcom's celebration of Dragon's Dogma's tenth anniversary. This brief showcase was a fascinating opportunity for the series' publisher and developers to reflect on a decade of Dragon's Dogma. While fans like myself were clamoring for a true successor to the original, there was a long period where the future of the franchise seemed uncertain. Fortunately, a revitalized Capcom has confidently showcased what's next for Dragon's Dogma.

Built on the foundation of the original entry, the new gameplay of Dragon's Dogma 2 features an astonishing amount of gameplay systems, story beats, and enemies in less than two minutes. The updated game engine recalls the first game's signature style, but with notable improvements. Dramatic and dynamic lighting can be seen illuminating horrifying monstrosities and epic heroes.

This game preview also showcases the fan-favorite pawn system, creature editing, and mind-blowing elemental magic. At first glance, Dragon's Dogma 2 isn't much different from Dragon's Dogma. Nevertheless, the emphasis on storytelling and world-building could suggest a greater emphasis on narrative delivery with the upcoming sequel. As we eagerly await more details and gameplay from Dragon's Dogma 2, it's clear that this continuation has the potential to be one of the best role-playing games in the coming years.
