Elsewhere, Capcom has increased the number of Art of Metamorphosis items available in Pawn Guilds to 99. Art of Metamorphosis allows you to modify your character, which is One of many day-one microtransactions that Capcom currently sells for real money.

Meanwhile, Dragon's Dogma 2 on console gets several graphics and performance options, including toggle motion blur and ray tracing.

Players have criticized the frame rate in Dragon's Dogma 2, which Capcom said was related to the stress placed on CPUs by a large number of NPCs.
