Dragon’s Crown Mesmerizes With More Screenshots

By Spencer . May 5, 2013 . 10:00am


We’ve seen videos for most of the characters in Dragon’s Crown. Atlus still has the Amazon to reveal, here’s a look at them her then.

Dragon’s Crown also has a Wizard, Dwarf, Elf, Fighter, and Sorceress to play as. You start the game in town, then move into a dungeon to beat up monsters, and after you clear quests you will see event scenes. Dragon’s Crown supports online play with PS3 and Vita* (but not cross online play compatible as originally announced by Ignition). Dragon’s Crown comes out on July 25 in Japan and August 6 in North America.

  • Learii

    day 1 with tales of xillia I can’t wait

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I want this game, I want this game really bad!
    P.D. em I the only one who thinks the amazon is more attractive than the sorceress? no? no one else? ok then…

    • kool_cid414

      While I love the sorceress I have a thing for tall and muscular girls so the amazon is definitely my favorite.

    • Slayven19

      I think a fair amount of people like the amazon more than the sorceress. I however prefer the elf.

    • Kelsey Battle

      I agree. That amazon is more attractive than the sorceress. She looks hot and sexy.

    • I like them both evenly. I think the sorceress is hotter but the amazon is cooler in a fight. I’ll play as the amazon but have the sorceress in my party too.

      • Valtiel Ikari

        I like the amazon because I think shes a bit less overly proportioned, the sorceress boobs and but are just WAY to big, while the amazon, apart from the legs (that since she is a warrior can be forgiven) is less overkill in proportions

        • I like overly proportioned features. In real life everyone and everything looks typical or average. Even the way people imagine things. People often say “you got your head in the clouds” meaning we need more down-to-earth ideas. This is a fantasy story. I want everything thing to be larger than life! If I wanted reasonable features of any kind I’d walk outside and gaze at a random person in shape. I’m not knocking you. But to me I crave more from any story, show, or game I see. Anything that reminds me of boring everyday life I try to avoid.

          • Valtiel Ikari

            I guess you do have a point, it’s fantasy setting afther all, why the hell not go all out then!

          • Exactly, but if d-cups aren’t your thing, that’s cool. I like the Elf too for being more cute than foxy LOL. For me it was all over when I saw Sorceress’ breast jiggle wildly as she jumped. Am I proud of that, no. Do I stand by my love for her anyway, yes.

          • Valtiel Ikari

            takes a real men to go out and screem their love for wildly jiggling boobs, I tip my hat to you, good sir.

  • DanijoEX

    I’m leaning towards getting this one. The Elf I’m already liking (and wanting to play as).

    I’m saving up to ensure I get it on Day 1…(or 2).

    • Zenthos

      You and me both.

    • KuchikiSentou

      Lol, I already have the money down pat. Just eager for news of a European release.

      If not, I’ll be hesitantly dusting off the ol US PSN for this one.

      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        Why not import it? Sure, you have to pay shipping but having to be swapping PSN accounts for one game seems like a hassle, plus the trophies wouldn’t count for your true account~.

        • KuchikiSentou

          I was a HUGE fan of PSPGo. So I’m kind of spoilt by digital downloads.

          Lol, I actually find having game cards and swapping them more tedious than switching accounts. Not that it is… I just don’t see myself having 5-6 game cards. Too inconvenient. The only game card I have is the one that came with my VITA bundle.

          I haven’t started caring about trophies as much as I should yet; given time constraints et al, but my US PSN was largely PSP so I guess I can manage

        • Wappuli

          There’s no need to swap accounts if s/he gets the PS3-version.

          • KuchikiSentou

            Nah. Dragon’s Crown is a VITA game to me.
            I’d completely understand/appreciate the fact that it’s not cross/buy; if it turns out that way.

    • Reserved it. Day one for me. I wish they talked and had their own names though. Hope it’s long too story wise.

  • Anyone know if the game adjusts to how many people you’re playing with?

    The screens look fantastic. Usually they never did Vanillaware games justice as they just never compared to what the game looked like in person and in motion. Makes me excited to see just how beautiful this game will look like once I’m playing it on my TV.

  • Hope there’s a combo pack or discount for people buying both versions or I’ll get the PS3 version only.


    • *high five* Go big or go home! I got a decent size HD TV recently. Got tired of squinted at PS3 game text on a SD TV. 33tv

  • The Watcher

    this looks like a fun Plat

  • Kelsey Battle

    I want this game so bad. PS3 version will be purchased for sure. This game looks amazing. Playing as the ELF. The amazon is so attractive. Ive been drooling for this game. Cant wait. This game has something for everyone. I will most likely have to play as DAT AMAZON too.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Man, the wait for this game has been agonizing. I wanna dive right in with these characters ASAP. I do hope there is a demo planned at some point before release.

  • I hope this plays like Sacred Citadel and Odin Sphere mixed. And I want a sequel to this that’s done in the Muramasa’s universe.
    My squad will be Amazon, Wizard, Sorceress, and Elf.
    Playing with the Fighter and Dwarf seem to typical.

    • Solomon_Kano

      So… you want a sequel Muramasa with more characters. It wouldn’t make any sense for a sequel to Dragon’s Crown to be set in Muramasa’s world.

      • My bad, I meant to say I want a system like them in a full sequel to Muramasa. Muramasa, like Odin Sphere had no party system. Character interaction was only at beginning and end of chapters. So I want Muramasa 2 to have a party and play like this with ninja and a long story with lots of interaction amongst the cast. I’d be all over that!

  • Nitraion

    Hmm I wonder Vanilaware have thought to make cameo boss battle with like odin sphere’s chara and muramasa blade chara………

    • It’d be nice idea for DLC.

  • I hear you don’t raise your stats in this game by battling but by eating like in Odin Sphere. So will battle just be for gaining money to BUY food then?

    • z_merquise

      I guess we’ll just have to wait for more updates.

      I expect that after they completed the character trailers, they’ll show more about the gameplay mechanics this time (without spoiling too much, hopefully).

      • yeah I hope so. I read my info on Wiki, so it may not be true. But I think it was this time. Something about making it easier to get strong for players who hate level grinding (or as I call it, character training).

    • Nitraion

      Lol i still wonder in odin sphere’s why chara didn’t get fat or die because obesity XD

      • LOL good point. I often forgot to raise my stats that way and got my ass kicked often. I eventually get the hang of it. I’ll do better in this game.

  • Kelohmello

    Man, I still remember back when Odin’s Sphere came out and it was one of the best looking games on the PS2. George Kamitani never disappoints, Dragon’s Crown looks absolutely stunning visually, just like all of Vanillaware’s games.

    • z_merquise

      Yes. No matter how old Vanillware games were, the art still looked so well-detailed and beautiful. I found their artwork timeless.

    • like playing a action-pack pop-up book

  • will this game still playable alone?

  • Any word of voice acting? Will the characters that issue quests or serve as antagonists have voice overs?

  • Teepo 64

    I don’t care how small their heads are and how big their…um..yeah.. are… I’m getting this game!
