Dragon's Crown Coming To Vita And PlayStation 3

We couldn't be more excited that the creators of Odin Sphere and Muramusa have a new action/RPG for HD Sony platforms. You'll love the first trailer and screens.

The newly announced Dragon's Crown will be Vanillaware's first true high-def game. Targeted for a spring 2012 release, the game features play for a single player, or up to four players working cooperatively -- including online play.

The game plays as a 2D action-oriented title with some brawling overtones, but you'll be exploring a maze of dungeons and slaying monsters along the way. The game includes six different classes, all of which are customizable.

Ignition claims that Dragon's Crown will feature the same hand-drawn animation, special effects, and soundtrack for both the home console and portable version, and there will be interoperability between the two. How that interaction between systems will work remains to be announced.

Last week, we posted a new trailer for Grand Knights History, which Vanillaware is working on for the PSP. It's great to see the developer has the reach to expand to a second game. Check out the breathtaking trailer, first screens, and remarkable art from Dragon's Crown below.

  • Pretty. Vita seems to be getting a lot of good games from what I've seen.
  • NICEE GRAPHIX DUDE

  • Glad i held off on buying the 3DS. PSV looks like it will have a lot of great games when it releases. Can't wait to play this game!

  • Muramasa was one of the most beautiful games I've ever seen, HD or otherwise. This could be the Golden Axe I've been waiting for.
  • looks pretty good so far

  • That looks so darn cool. I can't wait for this, also I still hope they release a translated version of Princess Crown here in North America.

  • Totally reminds of the old arcade games D&D: Tower of Doom and D&D: Shadow Over Mystara. Pretty *** excited for this.
  • I have always been impressed by games that look like this (graphically) but I have never tried one. When this comes to the Vita I will definitely be getting it!

  • Nice graphics, except that one lady who looks like one of those people that work out at the gym 24/7.
  • I'm glad to see that developers have stopped over-sexualizing females in video games. Other than that, this game looks pretty freaking sweet.
  • I love Vanilla Ware games. Even Grim Grimoire. I am really excited for this game and happy that the animation will truly pop out in HD.

  • VanillaWare has always made amazing 2D games, this looks awesome and I'm hoping that this could possibly lead to a HD re-release of Odin Sphere and possibly Muramasa. But still a pick-up for me on the Vita and PS3
  • Caan't wait, this is definitely a buy at release date for me. I loved Muramasa, it's the only Wii game I have completed. I don't understand these games coming out for PS3 and PSV, they connect with each other, but you'll have to buy 2 different versions of the same game? Sounds kinda, meh...
  • looks like fun

  • This reminds me of the old dungeons and dragons arcade game. Which is a good thing. Can't wait.

  • Must buy this game the firts day, i love odin shpere was agreat rpg game

  • Vanillaware...co-op...customization...Vita...PS3. My word.

  • Cool

  • Looks decent, but is there any plot?

    I dunno, Grand Knights History looks far more impressive.

  • holy f if my gf looked like that i would never fuss with her.
