“Devil May Cry 5” director wants to make an awesome “Dragon’s Dogma 2”

Dragon's Dogma

Capcom's director for Devil May Cry 5 still wants to make Dragon's Dogma 2.

Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 is one of the most anticipated games of 2019 as – for fans – it’s a way of making up for Ninja Theory’s attempt at rebooting Dante as a skinny emo who likes Black Veil Brides. While the game’s director Hideaki Itsuno is clearly passionate about the franchise and its characters, he has also insisted that he still wants to make Dragon’s Dogma 2.

In an interview with Eurogamer (via Gamingbolt), Itsuno spoke about how Dragon’s Dogma had been his biggest challenge at Capcom:

“That was a brand new series – a lot of other stuff I’d done was already established,” said Itsuno. “And back then it still wasn’t quite so common for Capcom to do a simultaneous worldwide release, plus we were doing all this new stuff with the pawn system.”

Although it was a difficult project, Itsuno has reassured fans that he still wants to make a sequel:

“[...] when we started Devil May Cry 5, I’d gone to the people up top and said let me make either Devil May Cry 5 or Dragon’s Dogma 2,” said Itsuno. “I thought Devil May Cry 5 would be the better choice right now, so did that. If I could, I’d love to make Dragon’s Dogma 2 – it’d be awesome.”

In other Capcom news, there’s the possibility of the Devil May Cry HD Collection being added to the Switch, and the development team responsible for the Resident Evil 2 Remake have discussed a terrifying “jump-scare” enemy that didn’t make it past beyond temp animation.
