Dragon's Crown Patch 1.05 Released
A new difficulty level, a new dungeon and more!
12.22.13 - 11:00 PM

Though this sort of content is normally paid DLC, Vanillaware and Atlus have released a new free patch for the PS3 and Vita versions of Dragon's Crown. Patch 1.05 includes:

Bug Fixes

  • Overall stability improved.

New Features

  • Clearing the ninth layer in the Labyrinth of Chaos unlocks the new "Ultimate" difficulty level. This difficulty can be selected at the Temple.
  • When in Ultimate difficulty, a new randomly generated dungeon named the "Tower of Mirages" is added.
  • Ultimate difficulty raises the level cap from level 99 to level 255.
  • Item shortcuts can now be assigned and used separately by holding L1 and the Up directional button.
  • Damage values can now be displayed as a running total instead of per-hit.
  • To help increase player character visibility, characters can be shown with transparencies when they are on top of one another. This feature is available in the Options menu and can be toggled on or off.
  • Save files that have cleared Story mode can skip the first quests leading to the Talisman collection when creating a new character.
  • Guild Quests that have already been cleared may now be skipped in subsequent playthroughs.

Changes

  • Character class skills have received a number of adjustments.
  • NPC behavior has been adjusted.
  • Rules and effects regarding equipment, items, and skills in the Colosseum have been adjusted.
  • Other tuning and minor improvements to various gameplay elements have been made.

The bad news? This will likely be the last patch released for Dragon's Crown, though the new content here should keep you busy for some time anyway.
