A new patch announced for the Japanese version of Dragon's Dogma will put "easy mode" in the options menu of the game, allowing players to switch over at any time. Capcom didn't specify the exact differences in easy mode, leaving us free to speculate that it removes one head from all multi-headed mythical monsters.
The patch will be released in Japan on August 6. Capcom has not announced plans for the rest of the world yet.
From the creators behind some of Capcom’s best action games, including the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4, comes their next opus, Dragon’s Dogma. Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma is a unique action experience that blends exciting and fulfilling combat with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world. With your party of three you set out on an epic adventure to track down and destroy a mysterious dragon. Along the way you’ll encounter some of the biggest and baddest beasts ever to roam the land, and only skilful play and tactical teamwork can save the day.
