Dragon's Crown: New Difficulty and Dungeon Available Today

200°
30w ago - ATLUS PR Manager John Hardin announced today that the Dragon's Crown new difficulty and dungeon are available via PSN today!

To quote: 'Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house, No DualShock was stirring because you didn't know there was a new Dragon's Crown patch out.

The players are all partying in the tavern with cheer, Because "Holy Crap!" a new difficulty level and dungeon are here!

I'm fairly certain that's how that poem begins, and I refuse to accept any corrections to it.

It's been a while since Dragon's Crown launched, but we haven't stopped working to make it better. We added cross play, improved the game balance, and tweaked many things to make the game even more fun. You would think we were done by now, but today we have a true holiday miracle for you: another brand new feature.

So knock the cobwebs off your Fighters, Elves, Wizards, and the rest, because we're adding in a lot of new content with The Fifth Dragon's Crown Patch.

If you've ever played a Vanillaware game before (Odin Sphere and Muramasa: Rebirth spring to mind), you know the brutal difficulty the games are known for. We got the impression that a lot of people didn't feel Dragon's Crown was hard enough on the way to level 99, so now there's a brand new Ultimate...
 

Video: Dragon's Crown: Fighting Together on PS3 and PS Vita

51w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements posted up a video today spotlighting fighting together in Dragon's Crown on PS3 and PS Vita below.

To quote: The kingdom is boiling in war all around you, and brigands threaten the crown just as much as the encroaching orc forces.

But you, noble adventurer, have loot to earn and treasure to find. You have swords to wield and spells to sling! Welcome to Dragon's Crown. Your adventure begins next week.

Dragon's Crown, from the developers at [Register or Login to view links], follows in the footsteps of Odin Sphere and Muramasa Rebirth. It blends eye-popping, hand-drawn animation with RPG-fueled combat.

An ambitious project, Dragon's Crown features six characters for players to select, and a bevy of stages to fight through. Though there are chests to open and skills to learn, the combat in Dragon's Crown is more like a side-scrolling brawler. A brawler you can invite your friends to!

Dragon's Crown encourages four-player cooperative play on both PS3 and PS Vita. You and your fellow adventurers can brave the dark and dangerous labyrinths together, building characters to complement each other's skills, or tempting fate with difficult combinations. Want to dive into a dungeon with four wizards?...
 

Video: Dragon's Crown for PS3, PS Vita Melts Faces August 6, 2013

65w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin posted up a video today announcing that Dragon's Crown for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms will be melting faces this August 6, 2013.

To quote: Dragon's Crown has had a long development process - especially for those of you who remember E3 2011 when Ignition first mentioned the game.

But now ATLUS and Odin Sphere developer Vanillaware are putting a stake in the ground for August 6th, 2013. If you're not familiar with Dragon's Crown, it's a 2D multiplayer action beat-em-up exclusive to the PS3 and PS Vita that features four-person co-op play, six character classes, skills that can be leveled up, and all the dungeon-exploring, orc-slapping, treasure-seeking action you can shake a magical staff at.

If you're not familiar with the date August 6th, please consult a calendar.

One of the reasons development took so long is the painstaking detail that makes every character, background or combat animation worthy of the artistic vision of Vanillaware. The intricacies in the artwork are immediately noticeable on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions.

Speaking of, we're working right now on making sure that gamers can take their saved games with them on the Vita. So while Vita adventurers can't party up with PlayStation dungeoneers, it doesn't...
 

Dragon's Crown Update: Atlus Publishing Title for PS3 and PS Vita

250°
118w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that they will be publishing the upcoming video game entitled Dragon's Crown for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: You know how you're really excited for something and then something happens and you get even more excited?

Like that time you found out they were making a movie for The Hobbit and you were excited... but kinda bummed that Peter Jackson wouldn't be directing it.

But guess what happened: Peter Jackson announced that he would in fact direct it, and you got a heck of a lot more excited. Right?

Remember Dragon's Crown, the next project from Vanillaware announced at last E3, a multiplayer action RPG with beautiful hand-drawn visuals slated to come to PS3 and PS Vita?

BREAKING NEWS: Atlus is taking over publishing duties in Japan and North America! What's more, key (and very talented) members of the Atlus internal development team will be involved with the project as producer(s).

You know, some of the people who've worked on games in the critically acclaimed Persona series. Yeah, we know: we're stoked, too!

What does this mean for the game? For one, it means that it's going to be better than ever. It will, however, come a bit later than originally...
