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.

In the latest Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen trailer, a Mystic Knight gets more than she bargained for when it comes to dragons. It's one thing to use sword and spell alike to fight flaming giant salamanders or to desperately cling to the feet of flying lizard-birds. It's another thing entirely to run into a pair of dragons, one breathing fire and the other ice. Dark Arisen is a major expansion pack for Capcom's Dragon Dogma, and will be available as both a direct download and a physical disc. It contains the original Dragon's Dogma in its entirety for new players, and allows previous players to transfer their saves in order to immediately leap to the new high-level content and underground realms. Dark Arisen is out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 April 23.
