Official Site: Dragon’s Dogma Online

Dragon's Dogma Online may be headed to the West eventually

At this point, there are no announced plans to bring Dragon's Dogma Online to Western audiences, something that no doubt makes aforementioned Western audiences rather sad. But there is hope. While the game faced difficulties getting off the ground because of an inexperienced team, the development team has stated in the latest annual report from Capcom that they would like to bring the game overseas once it has a solid foundation to work from.

Those players already enjoying the game, either because they're currently living in Japan or just muddling through the Japanese version of the game, can look forward to a crossover with Persona 5 starting on October 15th. No, the outfits don't really sync up with the game's setting, but when you're given the gift of a Persona crossover, you don't question the details of how this bounty has arrived in your life. Check out the trailer just below.

Dragon's Dogma Online is launching its season 2 update on June 30th

You can buy Dragon's Dogma on Steam right now for on sale (as with most things on Steam right now), so it's entirely plausible that you might play the game and think that it would make for a great online game. Apparently, Capcom agreed, as Dragon's Dogma Online is not only out but receiving a major update at the end of the month. Steparu has previewed the update, which features new areas, new dungeons, new bosses, new skills, and many other things with the word "new" preceding them.

The game is also making older content more accessible and giving players access to the full range of vocations within the game. Unfortunately, the game is still only in Japanese, although there are places you can look for translations and the like. Check out the update trailer just below if you're proficient in Japanese or just want to hope that the game will come out locally sooner rather than later.

One Shots: Rainbow glory

Even the grimdark world of Diablo III has a cute, rainbow-colored side... and reader Zulika is the one to take us through the wardrobe and into that magical world.

"In Diablo III there is a hidden land called Whimsydale in which you are attacked by pink & purple unicorns, flowers, and teddy bears," he said. "Here I am battling Evil Oliver, an elite teddy bear produced by the Happy Company, so that I can get to that loot piñata hanging from the nearby tree. Smiley rainbow clouds look on as my minion splits the last unicorn into flying bits. For my efforts of clearing this eye-bleeding map, I received a dagger that looks like a hamburger. Eight out of 10, would burgle again."

Betawatch: July 31st, 2015

I'm not going to pretend to fully understand why people are super excited about Tree of Savior, but I'm still very happy that the people who are super excited about it are seeing forward motion with its first English beta test on August 4th. Seriously, that's great news; Phantasy Star Online 2 fans have been waiting for that much news since the game was announced, and that doesn't seem to be happening.

Other beta news? Oh, yes.

And yes, folks, there's a list of games below! There always is. Plus, we'd love to know if a game slipped into a different testing phase but we missed it; let us know in the comments.
