Dragon’s Crown Character Maker Gives Players Different Color Options

By Spencer . May 23, 2013 . 2:54am


Whether you’re in the same room or online, Dragon’s Crown is designed to be played with friends and everyone can’t be a fighter with the same silver armor. Vanillaware created color variations you can choose from.

Look at all of the different elves!



Players can pick a name for their character choose voices (which implies an option between Japanese and English voiceovers), select a greeting message, and a dying message.

When you level up you gain skill points and when you return from an adventure you can use these at the guild to purchase skills. There are class specific skills and common skills you can choose from.

Dragon’s Crown starts in a town where there are different people to talk to. Some of them sell items so you can prepare before you go on a quest. When you leave town, Dragon’s Crown has monsters to fight, loot to collect, and experience points to earn. Occasionally, you’ll meet up with adventurers while trekking through dungeons. Even in single player mode, you’re never truly alone in Dragon’s Crown a fairy follows you and shows you which way to go. A thief who can unlock treasure chests and doors is also part of the party.

    This all sounds amazing…

    I’ll admit, I was on the fence for a purchase, but Vanillaware has pulled me in…

  • AkuLord3

    Sounding better and better…really can’t wait for this. Going have fun with two Vanillaware games this year~

  • Go2hell66

    if the fairy is anything like navi i’m going to cry

    • SuperSailorV

      Hey! Listen!


  • Virevolte

    The arts pains me a little. In Odin Sphere, I found it still good, in Muramasa : gorgeous, but now… I don’t know. It’s the curious assemblage of body proportions and skins tones… I still want to play it though.

    • ShadowDivz

      I think that’s what people love about it.

      The fact the artist is saying “SCREW ANATOMY! IT’S MY PENCIL, I DO WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT!”

  • Guest

    Best example of the different color options. Too bad some guys on a certain site took it to mean something else…https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/59637_429947370434109_277578159_n.jpg

    • Virevolte

      M… my eyes…! Urh !

    • ShawnOtakuSomething
      • XypherCode

        I got a laugh out of this. XD

        • Linhua

          … lol… me too… I got a kick out of that “Pro Asshole” part. Don’t think i’ve ever heard that used before.

          … and then he went “LOOK AT IT.” And I certainly did while I lol’d. XD

      • Amazing lol

    • GH56734

      This is why we can’t have nice things

      I feel bad for Mr. Kamitani drawing such a nice artwork, just to be rewarded with having to deal with such dumb controversy-stirring “journalists” with twisted ethics (and interpretations), trying to apply the Bechdel test (“oversexualization!”) on everything and anything in their desperate search for a good headline.
      Hope this doesn’t prevent him from sharing some of his awesome works from behind-the-scenes with fans in the future.

    • Final Aura

      Odin is displeased…

    • Pockystix

      y’know, I really think the artist just loves the human body

      like, a lot lol

  • Lucian Kara

    I’m definitely interested in this. Can’t wait to play as the Elf.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    O!M!G! A TANNED ELF!!! SOLD!!!


    Ehem… I do hope they make more color sets as DLC but for now, I like them. Especially the tanned elf, black dwarf and scarlet/pink haired amazon.

    Actually I also like the skill card illustrations too. The two versions of the character on a single card is a neat design.

    • ShadowDivz

      tanned elf = dark elf no?

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        Sí, señor!

  • Bakuryukun

    Ooh, I wasn’t expecting this as a feature. I’m glad I have this game pre-ordered, it’s sounding better all the time.

  • Hours

    It’s too bad we can’t be the versions of the characters shown on the cards. They are much more appealing IMO. Or at least let us unlock that barbarian dude and the Princess as playable characters.

    • It would be a welcoming addition anyway if we could unlock more characters. Of course, these 6 characters are already awesome to begin with, but more additional fighters are always welcome.

  • KingRuff

    Can we actually put a squirrel on the elf’s head like in the picture with three elves, or is that just an example of perfect picture moment? Oh, and I love the tan elf design so much. I have to play as her now.

  • Kelsey Battle

    This game looks so amazing. I cant wait to play as the elf. I like how you can name you character. I’m ready for this game.

  • Dat ass…….. now available in different colors =^_^=

  • Aristides

    Pure awesomeness! I’m digging the gold knight XP I can’t wait till this comes out, something tells me this is gonna be my next Demon’s Souls XP

  • JohnNiles

    Dying message?? I hope they aren’t canned/pre-selected (for the usual reasons). If not, mine will be: ELF NEEDS FOOD BADLY.

    • Neophoton

      Was just wondering that, and hoping it’s something that can happen. Mine would probably be “____, you idiot” when I’m playing with my friends.

    • I’d probably say “It’s time to go to Valhalla.” or “See you in Valhalla, mate!”

    • Ty Austin

      Mine would be: “YOU PRESSED THE WRONG BUTTON!!!”

  • Prepare for alternate colors as DLC.

  • TheExile285

    *Throws money at screen*

    You know the drill Atlus. Just take my money.

  • Learii

    looking good

  • Solomon_Kano

    There’s a skill system too? I cannot WAIT for this!

  • z_merquise

    I hope there’s a dark black armor for Fighter so I can have my own “Black Swordsman Guts”.

    Also hoping each character class have sort of a “Ultimate Skill” with an all-powerful attack/spell with awesome animation and all that.

  • Prinny Dood

    I wonder if this is the sorceress truth form an old witch : /

  • ragingmerifes

    I’d prefer different boob size options, especially for the dwarves.
