Dragon’s Crown Pro Coming West sometime in Spring 2018

Atlus USA has now revealed a launch window for the upcoming Dragon’s Crown Pro, which is an updated version of last generations PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita game. This time its coming to PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe sometime in Spring 2018. The price for the game has been revealed to be $49.99 in the United States and $64.99 in Canada. European prices have yet to be revealed.

So what is new in Dragon’s Crown Pro that separates it from the last generation version? They have updated the in-game graphics to support 4K resolution, Hitoshi Sakimoto’s soundtrack has been re-recorded with a live orchestra, this copy will include both Japanese and English audio, and will also include all the DLC on disc. The game has also confirmed to support English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish subtitles. Dragon’s Crown Pro will also let you use your own PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita save files and even play co-op online with PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita users. I think that’s a great move by Atlus and Vanillaware, allowing all versions to crossplay online.

Dragon’s Crown Pro will be featured and playable at this year’s PlayStation Experience 2017 which goes on from December 9-10 in Anaheim, California.

Dragon’s Crown for PlayStation 4 Leaked Early by TGS 2017 Banner

AyNdgm6It seems that SEGA/Atlus can’t catch a break from these early leaks, at least lately. Just the other day the Bayonetta/Vanquish double pack and Shenmue I & II HD Remasters got leaked via retailers. Now it seems that Atlus has a port of Dragon’s Crown in the works for PlayStation 4.The game was leaked via the banner below that was posted on Atlus’ Tokyo Game Show 2017 NicoNico Live steaming page and was was suppose to be promoting a ‘limited edition’ version of Dragon’s Crown for PlayStation 4.

Obviously Dragon’s Crown came out for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita back in 2013. So this will probably be a port of that game. Not surprising considering that Atlus and Vanillaware also brought the then PlayStation 2 exclusive Odin Sphere to modern Sony consoles.  I’m sure a beat ’em up game like Dragon’s Crown would do well on the PlayStation 4. What are your thoughts on this leak? Would you buy Dragon’s Crown on a current generation system?

Atlus and Vanillaware tease their upcoming new project

We posted earlier about Atlus and Vanillaware doing Odin Sphere Leifdrasir, a HD remake of the Playstation 2 game in HD and on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. But that isn’t all they have in store for gamers, the companies have unleashed the teaser above. Atlus and Vanillaware gained a working relationship (working on a game together) when they co-developed Dragon’s Crown in 2013.

This could be Dragon’s Crown 2, but seeing the visuals in the trailer its leading me to believe it might be a brand new IP. What do you guys think? The game will get more details in September, catch it at TGS most likely.

Dragon’s Crown orginally started life as Dreamcast game


The upcoming Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita game by Vanillaware started life as a Dreamcast game. Famitsu had a 4 page interview with director George Kamitani.

The project started about 13 years ago after the team released their SEGA Saturn title “Princess Crown” (Published and developed under the Atlus banner). This game was supposed to be its successor on the Dreamcast. George Kamitani says games like Golden Axe and King of Dragon have influenced this game greatly, and has confirmed 4 player co-op.

Feels good seeing people finish up Dreamcast projects, even if they’re not on Dreamcast. How about we get a polished up version of some of these great canceled DC games?
