Capcom confirms that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen will be released on April 23, 2013 in North America. The rehash of the publisher's 2012 open world RPG introduces a number of updates to the game, both to address issues players had with the original release and to add some enhancements that make your return to Gransys worthwhile.
Dark Arisen adds a large new underground realm to the game, with 25 new enemies to encounter there as well as an assortment of new missions. Other new features include the addition of level 3 skills, more than 100 pieces of new high-level equipment, more character/Pawn augments, added equipment enhancement options, and more.
There's more too. Those who already own the original Dragon's Dogma will receive 100,000 Rift Crystals (used to create fast travel markers), unlimited Ferrystones (used to travel to those markers), and the Gransys armor pack. New content will also integrate directly with your old Dragon's Dogma save. Dark Arisen comes to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as a $39.99 physical and digital release this April.
