Finally, Another Glimpse At Dragon’s Crown

By Spencer . February 18, 2013 . 1:00am

We haven’t seen Dragon’s Crown since Index (Atlus’ parent company) acquired the title from Ignition. Sony showed off a bit of the belt action RPG during their webcast. A video showed characters traveling on a flying carpet and these screenshots.

Dragon’s Crown from Vanillaware and Index is slated for release in 2013.

  • Randgriz

    Lots of incomeing vita content this week brilliant! I think were goign to see more tomorrow too. Im so glad FFX HD is still planned for vita too.

    • Huh? What? All the info was from the conference, and the conference is over.

      • Randgriz

        Yeah i think i got my wires crossed. But im happy to see more about FFX and Dragons Crown.

  • SolidusSnake

    ohh… This is the one with the unusually… Plump character designs. Cool that it still coming out.

    • Tails the Foxhound

      It’s a wonder I managed to forget about it, I’d seen so much…fan art…of it then suddenly nothing.

  • Go2hell66

    actually there’s a short trailer out

    have to say the game is looking beautiful

    • z_merquise

      Thank you so much!

      This game looks really good but its hard for me to get past the terrible character models. I’m probably the only person who thinks this way.

      • Go2hell66

        yea its just the artstyle, i’m sure once you get your hands on the game it’ll grow on you. the wizard and the archer look pretty normal though. you can always play as them. in fact those are the classes i’m most looking forward to trying out

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        Those are sprites dude.

        • TheExile285

          Potato, patato

  • z_merquise

    Brings back the good-old days of arcade beat-em-ups.

    It looked so beautiful!

    • Aoshi00

      The trailer actually reminds me of Golden Axe but much much prettier, looks epic like the Clash of the Titan movies :) This is on my Amazon pre-order list (along w/ 13 Versus & Last Guardian *.*)

      I definitely prefer Muramasa’s action to Odin Sphere, and Dragon Crown looks just like my cup of tea :) I’m getting it on PS3 though, to savor the 2D glory…

      • z_merquise

        True. Could be because of the heavy metal swords-and-sorcery look that both Golden Axe and Dragon’s Crown had.

        But for the gameplay, it reminded me more of Capcom’s Dungeons and Dragons arcade game (with the first game being directed by the same director of Dragons’s Crown).

        Just you mentioning Golden Axe just made me want to see new 2D arcade-style Golden Axe and not that Beast Rider game.

        Gameplay-wise, Muramasa is way better than Odin Sphere because Muramasa’s action is fast-paced and no complicated inventory management and leveling system. Really happy to see an improved version of it in Vita.

  • So glad this isn’t dead. I’m honestly more eager to play this than most big name titles in 2013

    • raymk

      I actually agree with you for once BoB Obb.

  • Unlimax

    This game is from the same developers who made Odin Sphere .. I’m looking forward to it .. love those Sprites by the way !

  • d19xx

    My vita is ready…

  • gamefreak86

    Hope they didn’t change sorceress, or id have to import from Japan.

  • grevlinghore

    Damn! I`ve been waiting for this! D:

  • Göran Isacson

    It lives! It actually lives! And it’s anatomy, both male and female is just as gloriously impossible and mindboggling as always! (note: that is a good thing, dudes with tiny needle-feet that could never support their chests and ladies with broken spines that… could never support their chests is what sold me on this game, please to not be mad)

  • Pockystix

    I wonder if they’ll ad new classes after this gets released.

    I’d like a spellsword girl, just kinda liked the Elf girl from Shadows over Mystaria~

  • Nitraion

    Odin sphere game style + Multiplayer?
    bring it on!!!

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    … I have nothing smart to say. The footage they showed looked that damn good. Imma watch it again and just sit here in awe…

    • raymk

      Pulls up chair, let me join you my friend.

  • Raoni Marques

    I’m happy to finally have another look at this game. Kamitami’s art style is among my favorites and I really love kicking the ass of some big monsters. Hope it doesn’t take too long to be released. This is gonna be a game I’ll get for both Vita and Ps3

  • The art and animations are masterful. One of my most anticipated games this year.

  • Cannot wait to get my hands on this!

  • .:Raphællius:.

    I am so waiting for this!

  • Kelsey Battle
