Dragon’s Crown’s Final Character Revealed, Introducing The Amazon

By Spencer . May 10, 2013 . 12:22am

The Amazon looks like Dragon’s Crown’s heavy hitter. This brawny warrior has a humongous axe and a flurry of kicks. It looks like the Amazon can close distance with jump kicks and  by sliding into enemies.

 

Dragon’s Crown comes out for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 on July 25 in Japan and a week later in North America.

    Amazon looks like a fun character, fast, good abilities and her butt is nice as well i guess heh.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Man, what a badass.

    • Alexander Aubert

      badass… LOL you made my day

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      are classes gender locked?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Yep.

        • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

          Can you change costumes for them or are weapons the only thing you can customize?

          • z_merquise

            I don’t think they’ll have alternate costumes but they have color swaps, like in a fighting game.

          • Solomon_Kano

            What z_merquise said.

    • Demeanor

      I see I wasn’t the only one to instantly think “this is badass!… lol no pun intended” XD seriously, not my fave look but she seems like the most fun to use!

    • ShadowDivz

      You deserve so much cookies.

    • Ric Vazquez

    • MogCakes

      They saved dat ass for last.

  • z_merquise

    The Amazon is so awesome! C’mon, she got Red Hot Kick!

    Plus her idle animation (0:11 – 0:13) looked so lovely!

  • kool_cid414

    My favorite!

  • Luna Kazemaru

    The best character.

      I feel sorry for you. Amazon is WEAK.

  • InfernoCommander

    Butt slam near 27s… it’s just too powerful.

  • Nitraion

    Wow I can do some chun-li combo here

  • Mace

    I’m way more bummed than I should be about her eyes changing to blue from green. I like my blonde hair greened eyed gals. Still using her when this comes out though, I love those kinds of “Spin Cycle” abilities.

    For some reason, I hope there are secret playable characters in the game. I’m already psyched to play these six characters, but it would be awesome to be able playing as the Thief or some other character.

    Every time I see art of the Amazon I can’t help thinking how painful her thong looks. No wonder she wants to kick things in the face.

  • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

    Very revealing indeed.

  • z_merquise

    That flaming dive kick!

      Inazuma Kick!

    • Crimson_Cloud

      More like Kuruda’s shadow skill: Sword to me. ;P

      • z_merquise

        Oh hey! Shadow Skill! It’s been years since last I watched it.

  • SpecDotSign

    It was either the Sorceress or the Amazon. Amazon wins, hands down. Especially since I know that the Sorceress essentially picking the hardest difficulty (Confirmed by Colin of Podcast Beyond).

    If this character designer worked for me I’d beat them with a cue stick every time they made something that looks like this. Good gameplay or not, it just looks terrible.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Wat.

      • http://www.facebook.com/charles.parker.5682 Charles Parker

        The Amazon’s artwork looks like she has scoliosis, a very tiny head, and giant shoulder blades jutting through her ass. Just one of her legs seems to be bigger than her whole torso. The in game version looks better, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

    • z_merquise

      Looks terrible? For me, it ain’t.

      I’m not an artist but I’ve seen bad artwork and the art made by Vanillaware aren’t among them.

    • Chiupon

      i generally think everything is bad and like
      even i think these designs are gr8.
      like the girls are age appropriate, sexy, and they’re not exploitative looking. They’re werq’ing. And the models themselves are flawless too, and match up very well with the art work, which is very evocative and inspired.

      the game itself looks pretty fucking grade-B+ too.

      I’m gonna sink hours into this.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    The Amazon is my favorite. She has her axe, and such wonderful ASSets =^_^=

  • d19xx

    Worship the Assmazon!

    • Solomon_Kano

      Assmazon is totally her new name lol.

  • Zhizn Snake

    Damn, she really does look like the strongest in the game, and her speed doesn’t seem to take a hit for it either.

    And it’s good to see Kamitani isn’t afraid to put a more muscular female into a game. Fans of muscular ladies haven’t had many heroes since Akiko Daimon, and Amazon also makes her look puny XD

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Oh reading bout ppl’s reactions to her and her constant thong shots should be entertaining.

    But she looks like a powerhouse and I like it. Diving flame kick, spinning buzz saw attack (Cornelius much?), and a huge butt slam? Very nice.

    Second Question: Has if been said whether or not there will be online multiplayer between systems? That might be my only deterrent from getting the Vita version (if there isn’t).

    Thanks in advance – you guys are super-helpful when I’m stupid.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Nah, no cross-play. Multiplayer is locked to each platform.

  • Fub Frank

    The game looks good outside of the clear catering to the assumed male demographic that is gonna play this.

    • Isaac Newton

      For female demographic just search for cho aniki there is so much male butt on that game.

      • Fub Frank

        Well, Cho Aniki comes across as something to laugh at as opposed to how these females come across.

        • Isaac Newton

          Sooooooo….
          Male Butts are laughable but female aren’t?
          Female Butts are fappable but male aren’t?

          It think you need to a doctor LOL(I’m not serious)?

          • http://twitter.com/Amiz4Eva Amiz4Eva

            It’s true to an extent though. The female body is usually used in media as an object of sexiness and allure, while the male body tends to be used as an object of comedy. Just look at things like LMFAO’s “Sexy and I know it” music video. It’s a bunch of skinny men in speedos jiggling their penises around, and the way it’s portrayed is obviously intended to get a laugh, not to turn a female audience on. Same goes for Cho Aniki. The men aren’t portrayed in a way that is supposed to be alluring to female audiences. It’s meant to be laughed at.

            If I was thinking of a male game character who was intentionally sexy, I’d think of Chris from Resident Evil 5 in his Warrior alternate outfit, or the original Dante from Devil May Cry. They’re just designed/dressed in a way that is appealing to female audiences (ignoring Chris’ steroid arms, of course. lol)

          • Fub Frank

            I thought I made it clear that I was speaking the tone of the games, not “Male butts are funny, girl butts aren’t”.

        • rebecasunao

          Oops replied to the wrong person. lol

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Always have to have one of you post this huh?

      • Fub Frank

        “One of you”?

        Sorry I’m not making more crude comments about the female characters or anything like that.

    • Chiupon

      you would think that, but the females in this game kick butt and look good doing it. Females aren’t turned off by that, which is why Bayonetta has a very large fanbase. If they’re being exploited, it’s a whole different scenario, but the ladies in dragons crown aren’t — they’re working their assets (literally) and look fabulous all while doing it, and that’s something that definitely attracts female gamers.

      • rebecasunao

        You shouldn’t speak for all female gamers you know. :/ If we were all pleased by designs like this no one would be complaining.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jin.lee.7927 Minasuki Sasuko

          No if the small minority of women who were actually upset with this wouldn’t be taking over as the voice of”all female gamers” there wouldn’t be such a fuss.

          • Luna Kazemaru

            Ok i’m going to be your friend right now and just tell you stop where you are with this right here. Trust me.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jin.lee.7927 Minasuki Sasuko

            I know where i am, I’m a female gamer who’s tired of being lumped in with other women who think they are the voice of all of us.

        • Chiupon

          Sorry for generalizing!

    Butt slam your enemies

  • http://thespellcraftcolumn.wordpress.com Rudolph Consuegra

    Chun-Li and Cammy are jealous.

    • Pain777sev

      Capcom should ask the artist to make 3d models for the SF series. An SF game with this art style in 3d or 2d would blow minds.

  • TheExile285

    Aaand Amazon steals the show

  • Isaac Newton

    I wish there is some wardrobe malfunction dlc for the Amazon LOL :D

  • ElGatoSerio

    (⌐■_■) Dat Ass

  • Eric Harris

    I think I’ll play either the elf or wizard. Every other character has something about them too big or out of proportion.

  • Teepo 64

    Not enough legs. :)

  • http://twitter.com/ChestnutBowl Chestnut Bowl

    I just want this game in my hands right this second.

  • Marco Tinè

    All characters in this game seems to play in different ways, with completely different sets of abilities. I think this is what matters the most about Dragon’s Crown, not the looks. I’m okay with George Kamitani’s interpretation of the characters, I don’t find them controversial at all. I’d rather concentrate on the game itself and try to see how it stacks up against other masterpieces of the same genre.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ren.mojito Ren Mojito

    Normally i’m not into that..but..i’m not the only one that wants her to sit on me..right guys? I’m normal right??A

  • Prinny Dood

    They should add wonder women dlc :)

  • Crimson_Cloud

    She is pretty cool, I’ll definitely try her, along with the sorceress and a mage. This and Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara will be awesome online play. ^^

  • http://www.facebook.com/jin.lee.7927 Minasuki Sasuko

    Why does it seem like they spent more time on her animation then anyone else i feel like she’s the only one with cool looking moves
