How Dragon’s Crown Will Utilize PlayStation Vita’s Touch Screen

Recommended Videos

Sony unveiled Dragon’s Crown during their PlayStation Vita presentation at E3, but Vanillaware’s fantasy beat ’em up is also coming to PlayStation 3. Aside being portable, how is the PlayStation Vita version different?


"On PlayStation 3, you use the analog stick [like a cursor] to select objects such as healing items. We wanted to take advantage of features on Vita, like the touch screen, so on Vita you can do the same thing by touching objects on the screen," Kashow Oda, producer, answered.


Oda then revealed a neat feature, "In addition to items, you can touch parts of the background. Walls, for example, may collapse if you touch them opening new paths."


Dragon’s Crown also features PlayStation 3 and Vita connectivity. If you have both versions you can transfer your data from a PS3 game over to Vita and continue to play Dragon’s Crown with the same character wherever you are.


We’ll have more about Dragon’s Crown next week when our interview goes live.
