Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen enemy showcase teases living armor and giant eyeballs

Capcom has released an "enemy showcase" trailer for the upcoming Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen featuring a trifecta of baddies awaiting would-be adventurers and their parties.

The first of three enemies shown is the Strigoi, a flying beast that grapples adventurers before impaling them with its scorpion-like tail. The Strigoi is vulnerable to fire, however, and using a self-immolation spell before being attacked will trick them into harming themselves.

The video also shows an enemy dubbed the Living Armor, who fights with a massive sword and shield. When the armor is destroyed, the narrator warns that the spirit becomes something else entirely and will necessitate a switch of strategy.

The last of the new baddies is a giant eye monster called the Gazer, which shoots eye beams, attacks with tentacles, and uses its eyelids like lips to chant a spell.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen comes out April 23 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
