Itsuno shared some of his hardships in 2022 and personal goals for the year 2023. Half of the year 2022 was ruined due to the Lumbago pain that he was suffering from. Therefore, he’s been keeping his health in check. After full recovery and getting a bike license, he looks forward to trying a full marathon challenge. As huge fans of Itsuno and his work, we at Twisted Voxel wish him the very best.
Earlier this year, Itsuno confirmed that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is in development. While the platforms haven’t been announced as yet, it’s safe to assume that all current-gen platforms will be supported. The announcement came as part of the ’10 Years of Dragon’s Dogma’ Developer Video.
Itsuno recalls his first encounters with high fantasy as a result of traditional pen-and-paper role playing games. This sparked his interest in RPGs in general, which he would take with him throughout his time working on arcade games for Capcom in the 1990s. By the year 2000, Mr. Itsuno had begun to create his own fantasy universe, which would later become Dragon’s Dogma.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the sequel to Dragon’s Dogma, an action role-playing hack and slash game developed and published by Capcom for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, an upgraded version of the game, was published in 2013 for the game’s original platforms, and was later ported to Microsoft Windows in 2016, and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017. Meanwhile, a Nintendo Switch version was released in 2019.
Set in the high fantasy realm of Gransys, the player assumes the role of the Arisen, a human protagonist on a mission to destroy the dragon Grigori, a being said to herald the world’s end, while unraveling other deep mysteries along the way.
