Fancy stepping into the fantasy world of upcoming action role-playing game Dragon's Dogma for real? No problem.
Ever seen the movie Tron? Well this is nothing like that. But Capcom is offering up a spot for your name to be in the game somewhere.
Presumably as an non-playable character. Maybe as a main character. But probably not.
You'll need to tell Capcom your name, naturally, but made up of the following three parts:
  • A modern name, (for example Dave, Brian, or Lesley)
  • A "Dragon's Dogmas world reflected name" - something Medieval-sounding (Thelonius, Link, or Geralt)
  • Your pet's name (Fluffles, Coco, or Epona)
You need to send a private message to Capcom community manager Fonix via the Capcom forum if you want to take part.
Dragon's Dogma is Capcom's first open world game. The Japanese company has assembled its largest ever development team to work on the new IP, and put Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Devil May Cry 4 director Hideaki Itsuno at the helm.
Dragon's Dogma is being built using the latest version of the MT Framework game engine, which was used to power Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2. Development began two years ago. It launches for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
