today's famitsu confirmed it



http://www.famitsu.com/news/201501/27070186.html

This seems like a really, really big reveal. The teaser says that it's an online game where you can play with friends. It's also action based. There is a full 18 page preview in Famitsu, so that doesn't sound like a f2p mobile title to me. It's a full blow out with platform, specs, story, multiplayer system details, and developer interviews.
some info

-plays like Dragon's Dogma
-world/setting/story is all new
-4 player party max (has AI pawn)
-Has big updates planned
-has lobby where you can chat/get party members. Up to 100 people in a lobby
-quick matching is available
-world will get bigger as seasonal updates come up (will be 3 times the original size after updates)
-Jobs include figher, hunter, priest, shield sage and more
-character creation is more extensive than previous games
-Big monsters get "angry" status (stronger attacks)


Okay, I looked at all the details.

Title: Dragon's Dogma Online
Platforms: PS3/PS4/PC
Genre: Action
Price: Free 2 Play (With microtransactions)
Producer: Minae Matsukawa
Director: Kento Kinoshita
Executive Producer: Hiroyuki Kobayashi

The game is an online game with a full open world, a lobby area supporting up to 100 players, and feature ongoing content updates, timed events, etc. Players can form parties of up to 4 players or pawns, and engage on quests. There will also be raid-like events which support up to 8 players at once. There will be quick matching as well.

Sounds pretty much like an online only MMO type game without the full MMO gameplay. Similar to stuff like PSO and Guild Wars.

What iiiis it though?

Please be the good kind of online and not the bad kind. Please. I don't want MMO, Mobile, a tumorous bundle of microtransactions or any of that junk. A remaster with online functionality would be just fine. A proper sequel with online functionality would be even better. Please Capcpom.
