New Support Characters Who Will Be Helping You Out In Dragon’s Crown

By Sato . March 29, 2013 . 4:15pm

Atlus have updated their Dragon’s Crown website with the addition of new characters along with some multiplayer information. The home point of Dragon’s Crown is set in a town called Hideland, where you’ll be able to visit shops and group up for your upcoming adventure.


Here’s a look at key characters you’ll be meeting in Hideland:


Princess Vivian


Princess Vivian first appears at the castle of Hideland. She’ll be requesting for your help in solving cases, it is still unknown as to how you’ll be helping her, but I have a feeling it’ll have to do with plenty of dungeon exploring.


Guild Master Samuel


As his title implies, the bulky armored Samuel is the master of the town guild. He’ll be responsible in registering your name to the guild and providing quests.


Lucain The Wizard


Lucain is found researching in an ancient tower. Known for his many achievements throughout his lifetime of being a great wizard, he now spends his days studying and providing adventurers with knowledge and hints.


The next two characters will be helping you explore the dangerous dungeons of Dragon’s Crown. They might not possess the strength to help you out in actual combat, but they will definitely help you out in dungeon runs with their useful skills.


Loni The Thief


Loni is a talented lock picker, who’ll follow you through the depths of any dungeon. He will help by opening doors and treasure boxes, which you normally wouldn’t be able to on your own.


Tiki The Fairy



Tiki is a fairy helper, who will help guiding you with directions to help navigate your way around dungeons.


Multiplayer will have up to four players in a dungeon at a time. Co-op mode can be played through Ad-hoc on PlayStation Vita or through a party of players on the PlayStation 3. Data sharing between the two devices will also be possible, so you can play Dragon’s Crown on the big screen and also on the go.


Both the PlayStation 3 and Vita will have online play, where players can be matched up with other players within a certain level range. Unfortunately, there won’t be a cross-platform multiplayer feature, but data-sharing is possible.


Dragon’s Crown is slated to be released on July 25th, for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

    The Artwork is so great in this game!

    • Indeed plus it has Online/Ad-hoc for PS Vita and then Split-screen/Online for PS3. This is how you do Multiplayer!!! Getting this baby! xD

      • Kickersu18

        I’m definatly gettin this game!!! But a cant preorder the game in germany at the moment… so i have to wait.

      • Woah, SPLIT SCREEN? I definitely want it more now. Most Co-op games only allow you to only be so far apart from the other characters.

        • Kevadu

          Did they actually say split screen? It’s a brawler, I would assue everyone just shares the same screen because that’s how they usually work…

          • The Watcher

            i was thinking the same

  • KingGunblader

    No cross play is a bummer but I want this! Hopefully there will be a discounted bundle or something.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      If only! =0

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Looks great. Glad the Vita version has both Ad-hoc and online, but lack of cross-play is sad. Oh well, dungeon mapping I shall go!

  • OMG…

    The music on the official site…

    <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    This game is beauty. Beauty everywhere!

    • z_merquise

      Yeah. I love Studio Basiscape’s music in every Vanillaware games and in Valkyria Chronicles series.

      Looks like this game would have an amazing soundtrack.

    • Go2hell66

    • TheExile285


      • tubers

        Ah crap. Thanks.

  • I cannot wait to get my hands on this game!

  • ShadowDivz

    I still don’t know what system to get it for.

    • Go2hell66

      The answer is simple


  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Guts The Black Swordsman!
    I could only wish…

  • Cameron Ward

  • Kelsey Battle

    Yes please. I am getting this baby! My PS3 is ready! I cannot wait to get my hands on this gorgeous game. This game is beautiful. One copy for PS3 please! Everything about this game that I’ve seen so far is breathtaking. I want this game so bad. The Artwork is so beautiful in this game.

  • Vanillware makes some of the best female character designs. Tiki looks adorable!

  • NightzeroAX

    I am ready. Oh yeah!

  • Göran Isacson

    Dat beard. That is what the playable Wizard only wishes he could one day sport.

    • z_merquise

      Well at least the young wizard got fabulous, flowing long hair.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Fabulous, flowing robes too.

  • Lester Paredes

    Wait, I’m confuzzled… Vita’s multiplayer is ADHOC only? Please, say it isn’t so!

    • Go2hell66

      ps3 and vita will both have online multiplayer

      • Lester Paredes

        Well, they only mention ADHOC. there’s no mention of any other mode of multi-player for Vita. I know it’s a go on the PS3,.. i mean, if that’s the case, i might just get the PS3 version. Do you by chance happen to have a link to somewhere where it’s stated that there will be more than just ADHOC? And, is it called Infrastructure? I’m confused on that part as well, which may/may not tie into my general confusion on Vita’s multiplayer aspect of the game…

        • Go2hell66

          It clearly says in the article above both ps3 and vita versions will have online play(2nd last paragraph)

        • Kelohmello

          There’s no cross-console-play. They mentioned this earlier.

  • Go2hell66

    Yea i think the sorceress needs all the support she can get
    if ya know what i mean…

  • Ill get this for my birthday on july :) !

  • JustThisOne

    Noooo! The thief isn’t playable! ;___; *cries*

    Who will I use now?! Doushio?

  • Bob Stockalockapoulos

    This game looks really cool. I never heard of this until now. Most definitely giving this a try.

    Indeed, the artwork is dope. It totally reminds me of the ol’ school.
