In news that'll surprise nobody who's been following the various leaks leading up to today's official announcement, Capcom has confirmed Dragon's Dogma 2 will launch for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC on 22nd March next year.

That date first emerged earlier this month, when it was spotted as part of a (quickly removed) listing on the PEGI ratings website. It then prematurely resurfaced on Steam today, getting a little ahead of Capcom's latest Dragon's Dogma 2 showcase where it was finally made official.

And official it now is, with Dragon's Dogma 2 director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi confirming the news during a 15-minute livestream that also featured a lengthy new trailer. Tucked in there was an appearance from the previously unseen Talos, a truly colossal armoured soldier striding forth from the depths of the ocean that Capcom seems particularly proud of - so much so that we got an extended look at the fight once the trailer was over.

Capcom also revealed a new side quest - highlighting an elven enclave where the local language must be translated by a suitably skilled Pawn before it can be understood by players - plus the game's striking new character creator, the new Trickster vocation (whose weapon can spew illusion-conjuring smoke), and more.

Pre-orders for Dragon's Dogma 2's Standard and Deluxe Editions open today, the latter including a special camping kit and other items to "help you prepare for your journey". Pre-ordering the Standard Edition gets you bonus weapons for Dragon's Dogma 2's four starter vocations, while "additional accessories" come with pre-orders of the Deluxe Edition.

Eurogamer's Ian Higton took a look at Dragon's Dogma 2 back in September, saying it "feels very similar to the original, for better and worse" - which is probably all fans of the first game need to know to get giddy ahead of its Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC arrival on 22nd March year.
