Here is one for you. Capcom have started teasing a new product by the name of “Project Palm” and it’s got Dragon’s Dogma fans excited.
Project Palm, that has a website and a video starring Yuichiro Umehara, a Japanese voice actor involved with the project, are live. What is interesting about this however is that there is speculation that upcoming date of August 2 might be a reveal of a new Dragon’s Dogma. This all comes about following a NeoGAF user Rymuth posting up some clues as to suggest a connection between the two tiles.
In Dragon’s Dogma the AI teammates, known as Pawns, have glowing scars on their hands. This is how the characters in the world know who is a Pawn and who isn’t. What is interesting however is that the images seen in the Project Palm video look somewhat similar to the scars of the mighty Pawns.
This could mean that Project Palms might very well be a tease for an upcoming announcement. That said however Siliconera have said that the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu revealed Project Palm to be “Toraware no Palm (The Captive/Taken Palm)” and that it was featured in the Apps for Girls section of the magazine. That said however, it has apparently since been removed.
Speaking back in January, Capcom producer Minae Matsukawa said that internal meetings had been held to discuss a Dragon’s Dogma 2.
“Thanks for your interest in the series. The Dragon’s Dogma development team members often talk about the possibility of a sequel. We’d love to hear the opinions and feedback from players of the upcoming PC port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, as that will increase the chances that we can look into the possibility of continuing the series.”
It has also been confirmed that the Dragon’s Dogma development team remains mostly intact as they went on to create the expansion and the Dragon’s Dogma Online game which is available in Japan. Should there be a Dragon’s Dogma 2 in development then it would mean that the creative minds behind the first game will be involved and that is a good thing for fans.
Dragon’s Dogma was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012 and quickly went to be a successful title and has sold over 2.3 million copies to date. If a new Dragon’s Dogma game is in the works or not is still yet to been known but for now, this news if only speculation is still something for fans to think about.
Let’s hope that a new game is announced soon though because I need me some more Dragon’s Dogma!
