Shared during an in-depth dive as part of the 2023 Capcom Showcase, game director Hideaki Itsuno revealed more about the game mechanics highlighted in a recent trailer.

Itsuno also shared some of Dragon’s Dogma 2’s almost Dungeons and Dragons-like mechanics, with players seemingly able to progress further in a number of ways. “What if I destroy that bridge, or what if I pull the monster’s leg?” he asked.
Finally, some character information was also shared, highlighting two in particular. Ulrika is an archer with a deep connection to Arisen, and Nadinia is a high-ranking lycanthropic priestess, both of whom are central to the game’s story.
