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.
