Dragon’s Crown has been removed from the European PlayStation Store. NIS America’s European branch confirmed on Twitter that its license for the Atlus game had expired. Back in April 2016, NIS America said it would no longer act as a publisher for Atlus’ games in Europe.
NIS America Europe offered additional information for Europeans who had purchased digital copies of Dragon’s Crown. If someone bought the game and has it on their system, they will have no problems playing it. The online cooperative multiplayer should function normally. It should also remain in the download lists of people who purchased it prior to its delisting.
Dragon’s Crown was released on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Europe on October 11, 2013.
Update: Siliconera received a statement from NIS America confirming Atlus will release Dragon’s Crown digitally in Europe.
With regards to our previous statements on Dragon’s Crown for the European PSN, we must extend our deepest apologies to Atlus and European fans regarding the incorrect information about the removal from this store.
The removal of Dragon’s Crown from the European PSN was part of NIS America’sand Atlus’s mutual agreement on this title. We are happy to announce that Dragon’s Crown will be available directly from Atlus in Europe through PSN.
Please look forward to Dragon’s Crown returning to the European PSN soon.
