Dragon's Dogma recruits Travis Touchdown on Switch


Pawn star

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes has a wardrobe bursting with clothes, and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen isn’t short on Pawns to assist the Arisen, but screw it, there’s room to squeeze a crossover into both games. The two Nintendo Switch titles are teaming up this month with in-game items.

As revealed by Grasshopper Manufacture’s own sharp-dressed man Suda51, Travis Strikes Again will soon let players deck out Travis Touchdown with a black Dragon’s Dogma t-shirt. It’s essentially the action-RPG’s cover art in shirt form — the exact kind of thing gaming companies love to send out as promotional swag that ends up at Goodwill — but I’m not complaining. It’s real-world accurate!

The Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen side of this collaboration is admittedly more enticing. With the Nintendo Switch version of the game releasing on April 23 (then April 25 in Japan), it’s about the perfect time to detail bonuses before launch. On Switch, we’ll get our very own Travis Touchdown.

Travis will be available as a Pawn in Dark Arisen, complete with a beam katana. (Well, more or less.) For those of you who have never touched Dragon’s Dogma, that means he can join your party and he’ll incessantly shout nonsense at you per Pawn tradition. These AI characters mean well, they really do.

In the Famitsu video above, you can find the Travis Strikes Again segment at the nine-minute mark. The Dragon’s Dogma crossover is discussed further into the presentation, at around 43 minutes.

This is a fun little bit of friendly cooperation and I’m here for it. The fact that it’s free DLC helps, too. Check the gallery for an up-close look at the t-shirt and the fantasy riff on Travis Touchdown.
