In Dragon’s Crown, players take the role of one of six adventurers who must roam labyrinths in search of treasure and the legendary “Dragon’s Crown.”
Your mission is to dive into the dank underworld, uncovering treasure and strengthening your mettle as you unlock the secret behind the ancient dragon threatening the world. Simple, easy-to-learn controls allow anyone to dive into the fray and enjoy the breathtaking sword-and-sorcery action. In addition to long-lasting gameplay, the game also features a vast array of character customization features – with six wildly different classes to play as, raiding the catacombs for epic loot remains fresh and engaging.
Although intrepid adventurers can certainly enjoy Dragon’s Crown on their own, the real excitement begins when four players team up online for a four-player cooperative mission. And don’t expect the portable Dragon’s Crown to be scaled back in any way: The game will offer the same fluid hand-drawn animation, blazing special effects, and haunting soundtrack on both PS3 and the new PS Vita, with some special interoperability features between the two versions to be revealed at a later date.
Dragon's Crown isn't a flash-in-the-pan action game; finding the ultimate treasure in the land wouldn't feel very ultimate if it could be recovered in a few hours. To that end, players will have to get very comfortable with their characters, so Dragon's Crown includes customization options:
- Name - Character names are selected randomly initially, but are fully editable. (within good taste, naturally)
- Outfit - Each class comes with five different color palette options for their outfits, ranging from "True Steel" to "Deep Crow."
- Voice - Not only will each class have an English voice, but we've also left the Japanese combat voices in the game. It's a per-character option, so the battlefield can have a mix of languages.
- Analog - For the old-school fans out there, Dragon's Crown includes an option to switch movement from the analog stick to the D-Pad. (other controls are locked)
Dragon's Crown will be available for $49.99 (PS3) and $39.99 (Vita).
