I actually took a break from playing a preview build of Dragon's Dogma to tell you that a demo is coming our way this month. Capcom has confirmed a demo release on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network for April 24 for North America, with Europe getting theirs on PSN the next day, April 25.
The demo gives you a party of three Pawns and a choice of two different character classes: Fighter and Strider. If you dig the character you've created for either class, you'll be able to import them into the full game at release.
Speaking of release dates, Dragon's Dogma will be released on May 22 in North America.
I'm busy putting together a preview for next week. Oh? You want a preview of my preview? How's this: I'm pleasantly surprised at how deep Dragon's Dogma is, and at how much fun I'm having. It's really easy to get into, and then it sucks you in, keeping you there.
