Dragon’s Crown, the 2D multiplayer brawler from Vanillaware and Atlus, has received another update patch in North America. Here’s a list of changes the patch implements within the game:


[Bug Fixes]

  • Improved gameplay stability


[New Features]

  • Added an option to join random online games in the Labyrinth of Chaos to the Network Menu.
  • To enhance player character visibility, a triangular cursor has been added to the bottom of the screen.
  • Wizard: Charging MP when the MP is already at maximum will cause magic power to increase.


[Feature Modifications]

  • (PS3 version only) When playing offline multiplayer games, the story progression will now be saved for all characters.
  • If a network communication error occurs in online play, the game will now continue in the same stage rather than kicking the player back to town.
  • Amazon: A successful Parry raises Berserk level by 1.
  • Amazon: The Necksplitter attack can now be cancelled.
  • Various Skill effects of all character classes have been adjusted.
  • Other tuning and minor improvements to various gameplay elements were made.


Dragon’s Crown is headed to Europe next. NIS America will publish the game in Europe on October 11th.

    I like the Wizard buff

    Too bad i’m using my waifu the Elf archer.

    “(PS3 version only) When playing offline multiplayer games, the story progression will now be saved for all characters.”

    As far as I could tell (from playing the game couch co-op) this was already true the previous patch.

    “NIS America will publish the game in Europe later this year.”

    *In less than a month.

    I already spent 100+ hours in the game and yet I still haven’t started playing as the Wizard and Sorceress. Better start them now with the new patch.

    It’s so nice to see Vanillaware and Atlus still supporting the game.

    • Masengan

      The game came out not that long ago, it would be weird if they weren’t.

      • z_merquise

        I’m sure there are some games that have a strong focus on multiplayer that were never given a patch to fix things even with a vocal community requesting for it.

        One game that I know that had such case is Anarchy Reigns.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oooh, increasing Magic Strength for the Wizard when charging at full MP? There’s a neat bonus. As is a succesful parry insta-netting Amazon a Berserk level. Kinda curious as to what the triangular cursor is supposed to mean, though.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Basically a triangle below the character to show where they are… or above their heads to make it easier to spot where the player is. And the triangles are no doubt in the same color as the player icons.

  • Where’s the love for my Sorc

    Pressing X causes lovely movement which stuns enemies for 5 seconds

  • Christopher Nunes

    But I like the story progression and it gives me more motivation to play as the other characters. D:

    Well I could create a new Game File, but still I’ll play the game before… oh crud! I have an automatic download on game patches and and game save uploads.

    So do I need to beat the Final Boss on Normal Mode to get the other character’s picture and ending for the Gallery?

    The Elf has been my main (and I’m in love with her) and I haven’t started on the other characters yet.

  • Jonathan Tse

    man, the Amazon just keeps getting buffs.

  • Lemon

    If they ever make a sequel, I hope they add the skill to reduce your chances of being disarmed. Sure, I can carry two swords on my fighter, but it really gets on my nerves seeing him drop his sword far too often.

  • Linhua

    … WOW… The Neck Splitter can finally cancel… that was… really kind of awesome how I had been thinking how nice this would be but never voiced on it because it wasn’t too big a deal… and then BAM. It’s there.

    … how surreal… looks like i’ll be playing it again tonight~

    I’ve gotta say, the addition of ‘life bars’ to your items is a great improvement. Makes it much easier to pick your equipment when switching kit between dungeons.
    And an option to turn of the huge glowing triangular cursors at the bottom of the screen would be nice!
