Dragon's Crown is a new 2D Action RPG from Vanillaware, the developer that's also working on PSP's Grand Knights History for Marvelous Entertainment. Ignition is handling the worldwide publishing on this one. The official site says that it's the second Japan-produced title from Ignition (the first was El Shaddai).

Although the game appeared in Sony's PS Vita trailer reel, the official site reveals it to be in development for both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. The game will see release in Spring 2012 and features support for 1 to 4 players.

George Kamitani is directing the game. Ignition's Kashow Oda is serving as producer.

As detailed at the official site, Dragon's Crown offers "red-hot multiplayer 2D action." Up to four players can team up via online play to work through dungeons, clearing quests and progressing through the game's story.

The lets players build up their character as they collect items, treasure and weapons from the dungeons. You'll need to build up your character to face off agains the screen-filling dragons.

The official site isn't totally clear about this, but it seems that the game's PS3 and Vita version will have cross console play. The official site says "Up to four players work together via PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita."

Nice that it's coming to both. Now Vita for portability or PS3 for HD graphics? Would be nice if you could get them bundled together with some smart save syncing.

Dragon’s Crown is a 4-player online cooperative game


God DAMMIT. Even the Japanese are throwing in bullshit online now.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Having more than one player in a sidescroller beat`em up is not exactly unheard of. Games of this genre have been like this since forever. And it`s not like it`s co-op only, so I don`t see the problem.

Is single player announced yet?
I get a feeling it'll be something Frontier Gate.
I dislike even that idea.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Jeez, some people are a little too eager to hate.  This looks awesome.

Jesus that's some "dwarf". And there's nothing new I can say about the others.

Given their game design (and the fact it's not adhoc-only) I'd say it might actually be a great fit, an improvement possibly! Kind of like how Diablo's kind of repetitive and monotonous alone but is a blast with other people.

I like how the skeleton's face is smothered at the Sorceress' breasts.

That Amazon is ridiculous- pretty much crossed the line into Rob Liefeld awfulness with that one.

    • My DeviantArt site!  Come, stay, laugh, cry.
Vanillaware loves the sort of outlandish logos.  Anyways.  I will have and I will want this game for these reasons:

I'm not too crazy about the stupidly-portioned characters though.  Cute with giant-muscle-bearded-man, but the sorceress' tits are just embarassing haha

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the character designs either, but other than that, I'm excited for it big time.
