I'm something of a fanboy for certain mythological creatures, so part of the fun of covering Dragon's Dogma is in seeing which monsters turn up next. We've seen some pretty badass takes on the Griffon and the Hydra, and now Capcom kicks it up a half-step with the Chimera.
In case you don't know (or can't tell from the screens), a Chimera is a monster with a goat's head, a lion's head and a snake's head. Don't ask me how it works -- it just does!
I'm crossing my fingers for a Wyvern and a Manticore. What do you want?
