Yes, The Dragon’s Crown Opening Movie Has A Dragon In It

By Spencer . June 7, 2013 . 1:19am

Ahead of the game’s August release, Atlus uploaded the opening movie for Dragon’s Crown. The titular dragon is just one of the monsters in the game. Watch out for these enemies in Dragon’s Crown’s dungeons.


The Harpy bewitch men with their beauty and bring them back to their nests to feed them to chicks.




The Doom Beetle is a worm mutated by magic. Worms stun enemies with their tentacles while Doom Beetles attack players with their giant jaws.



The Minotaur was sealed in the Bilbaron Subterranean Fortress and orcs deliver it a human sacrifice once a month.



Vampires aren’t immortal in Dragon’s Crown, but they have eternal youth and bat-like wings.



The Wyvern is an intelligent creature that travels in packs and hunts for sport.



Dragon’s Crown comes out on August 6 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

    Music was awesome and those monster designs look great.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Good to see a positive comment that isn’t about tits lol

  • SpecDotSign

    I demand to know who is the composer for the game because that opening sequence had music that sounded iconic. Like Hitoshi Sakimoto iconic. This is already a day one purchase for me, but if it’s Sakimoto’s music…Day Zero!

    • z_merquise

      Studio Basiscape is the composer here for sure. And in most games they worked on, Sakimoto is always the one composing the theme song / title song.

  • Cero

    Uh oh! looks like the sorceress got some competition with the vampire.

    • Abyan Haidar

      yeah.. that gravity-defying magic and… ..

  • transferstudentx

    even monsters have boobs in this game IT’S GONNA BE AWESOME !

  • Virevolte

    Hmmm… the Harpy is too much of a fat bird to bewitch anyone. ^^”

    • Kenju

      Clearly you haven’t seen Soul Sacrifice’s Harpy.

      • Virevolte

        Oh dear… I had succeeded in forgetting it…

  • Testsubject909

    Aaaaah! Release already and let me play you!

    *tosses wallet at screen*

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Played too many monster girl games so I found those creatures with female bodies attractive… *sigh*

  • Go2hell66

    Oh god that minotaur is like the scariest thing ive ever seen come out of a video game

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Simple but clean opening movie. Me like.

    And the monster designs are awesome (like there was a chance that they wouldn’t be). Wyverns and Doom Beetles look fearsome, and the Harpy and Vampires are deceptively captivating. I look forward to crushing them all~! >=D

  • ChiffonCake

    Nice designs. I especially like how the harpy isn’t just a lady with bird legs and wings.

    • Raoni Marques

      The harpy is one of my favorites so far. Best harpy I’ve ever seen in a video game.

  • amagidyne

    Is it just me or is that minotaur kind of.. Mara?

    • SuperSailorV

      lmfao. probably intentionally phallic.

  • XiaomuArisu

    EU release please?
    I will buy both versions!

  • Yuriangels

    will at lest the vampires aren’t sparking!!!

    • JoJo_649

      Those aren’t vampires, back in my day they used to suck blood from the tips of their hands, shoot ultra pressured liquid from their eyes and take over other bodies as disembodied heads xD.

      • Kelohmello

        The vampires in my day also used to freeze time, throw steamrollers knives and what have you, and scream “MUDADA”. Now those were real vampires.

        • Ramengeddon


          • Raoni Marques

            You guys took all the good lines! Dammit…

        • ZA WARUDO!

    • puchinri

      Those are succubi in Twilight anyway, calling them vampires is just a cover-up.

  • Flandre Scarlet

    Oh good, I was worried for a second that there would be no dragons in a game called Dragon’s Crown. Boy, that’d be awkward!

    Still a day one buy, looking forward to it.

  • Kelohmello

    George Kamitani’s art and designs are always so wonderful. He always captures old mythical fantasticism in his art so perfectly and even more impressive is how it manages to take work of this quality and bring into a video game without losing its magic. Stuff like this is why i’m a major fan of Vanillaware’s games.

  • Oh man, i cannot wait for this to come out! And take that everyone who didnt think that kamitari drew sexualized male bodies as well!

  • Demeanor

    I got a strong FF Tactics/Vagrant Story vibe, atmosphere-wise and from the music. It’s amazing the way they can breathe LIFE into a 2D image like that, when the Elf opens her eyes my God I just MELT. Can’t wait for DAT ARTBOOK.

    Getting better and better, let’s hope it will be at least 40+ hours.
