The Beautiful Environments And Ferocious Monsters In Dragon’s Crown

By Spencer . June 30, 2013 . 12:57pm

We’ve seen plenty of pictures with the characters in Dragon’s Crown, but where is the Wizard going to explore when he goes out for a mission? If you’ve been itching to know check out these images Atlus shared of the game’s environments and the monsters lurking inside. Some monsters such as the dinosaur-like baby dragon and saber-toothed cat can become mounts after you clonk them on the head a couple of times.

    Ahh…There is something in lighting here that western studios most often miss…
    Edit:Uh-oh, i said the L-word…:D

  • Ninastars

    I really love the whole visual look. It really captures this whole old school fantasy illustration look but with that Vanillaware flair that makes it gorgeous.

  • Imagine seeing the game on one of Sony’s 4k no gamer can afford does your laundry super TVs

  • TheExile285

    Can’t wait to get the game and artbook. One more month!

    Insane detail on that dragon and that succubus/bat lady looks hawt!

    Looks like that harpy can’t even lift her upper torso due to the 2 heavy luggage attached to it…

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    I’m excited that this will be Vanillaware’s first HD title. Their past games still look good on HD TV’s now (with a little blurriness), but Dragon’s Crown will not just be pretty, but exceptionally crisp. August ho!!!

    “Video games are NOT art!”
    This game says otherwise ;)

    • Txtsword

      Is containing art the equivalent of being art?

  • Arcana Wiz

    It’s so beautiful, been a fan of vanillaware since Odin sphere and this looks neat it’s like it is screaming buy me NOW!

    • z_merquise

      That avatar of yours is the little girl from Odin Sphere, right?

      If it’s okay to ask, do you got the full pic? I’ve seen many great fan arts from Vanillware games but I haven’t seen that before.

    • XiaomuArisu

      She is reading the best book ever!
      OswaldxGwendolin ftw!

  • I need all of Vanillwares art in the highest resolution possible. I doubt I’ll be able to buy the first print of DC at launch. I hope the prices don’t get too crazy. ;_;

    August is going to be one hell of a month thanks to Dragon’s Crown and Tales of Xillia, I really can’t wait to play them.

  • Learii

    I hope this not gonna be my last Atlus game

  • Sekundes

    Vannilaware ALWAYS has the most beautiful dragons.

  • Neophoton

    That last dragon vaguely reminds me of Belial, from Odin Sphere.

    Nonetheless, Vanillaware always draws out some amazing dragons. Cannot wait for this game.

  • Alestaos
