Maybe internet petitions do work?

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen — the 2013 enhanced expansion of the 2012 fantasy RPG — has just been given a surprising January 2016 release date on PC, along with a $30 price tag. The original games' absence on PC was immediately noted by would-be players, who pointed to the huge success of fantasy RPGs on the platform.

"Right now, nothing's off the table yet," Dragon's Dogma producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi told 1UP in 2011, before the release of the original game. "But if the PC users out there really are vocal about having this game, then we can definitely consider it."

While the release will be nearly five years after that interview, it seems that Capcom has finally considered it. "Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for PC will present stunningly high resolution graphics with increased fidelity," the press release reads. "The game also includes full Steam platform support with Achievements and the ability to play using both Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, plus the traditional keyboard and mouse control scheme are all available for players to customize the way they play."

Capcom has been listening to fans eager for new releases of older games. Just last month, the company announced a remake of the oft-requested Resident Evil 2.
