Now Playing: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - Remaster Announcement Trailer

In May, Capcom made a low-key announcement that the game was coming to the consoles to commemorate Dragon's Dogma's fifth anniversary. The game has drawn many comparisons to games like Skyrim, Dark Souls, and the Monster Hunter games, but set itself apart in the fantasy RPG genre. GameSpot's Kevin VanOrd gave the original version an 8/10, applauding its fantastic combat, monsters, atmosphere, and "one of the best boss fights in any role-playing game, ever." The game has a unique "pawn" system, where players can recruit other player avatars as AI-controller party members.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen comes out October 3 on PS4 and Xbox One. Follow GameSpot's full coverage to see more of the game in action.
