With the game right around the corner, Atlus have issued a press release with all the details you’ll need.

It’s the little things…

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)

Don’t forget, there will be a separate voice pack available for free for the first month after the game’s launch on August 6. The voice pack changes the narrator’s Victorian accent to any of the six playable classes.

Dragon’s Crown will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems for $49.99 and $39.99 respectively and is available for pre-orders now from major retailers. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. More details about the game are available on the official Dragon’s Crown website at: http://www.atlus.com/dragonscrown/

Pre-orders and first-run printings will include the 64-page full color
Dragon’s Crown Artworks book, pictured below. Keep an eye out for a sample of the artbook next week!

  • Lester Paredes

    This is me, desperately foaming at the mouth for this game.

    • Escapethemoi

      Indeed, if they don’t announce it for Europe soon I just might have to order it from America.

      • Jonathan Harding-Rathbone

        Ditto. I really, really want this game!! What worries me is with Atlus going bankrupt whether it will come to Europe at all with all the extra languages needed 🙁

        • Escapethemoi

          Oh damn you’re right, I missed out on that. Imagine NIS buying out Atlus tho. One can dream.

      • BastianSiv

        Will you be able to use the online functionality on a EU PSN account with this NA game copy? Please say YES!

        • Escapethemoi

          As far as I know, you can, but only on the NA servers. I have a NA Ragnarok Odyssey at home, I really should look into that.

          • BastianSiv

            Yeah NA servers are fine with me. 🙂

          • Escapethemoi

            Yeah I don’t mind either. One thing that might be an issue tho is the fact that you cant download DLC from the EU store if you’re using a NA copy of the game, and with a game like this I’m quite sure there’s going to be more content.

          • BastianSiv

            Yeah that would be a shame. Hopefully it will come to Europe.

          • Jonathan Harding-Rathbone

            I’m not going to say for definite but it should be ok…my Korean copy of DJMax Technika Tune has online leaderboards and rankings and obviously was never released in the EU.

  • Justin Konzon

    I got a second psvita because of Muramasa and Dragons crown so I could have a American account , Saving money in the long run importing games . Not feeling confident about Europe releases just now : (

  • Terramax

    As always, EU has to wait and see…. who was it who keeps saying the EU gets better deals than the yanks again?

  • Alex Simmonds

    This looked awesome, until I realised it was a side scroller 🙁

  • Pre-ordered for the art book. I might review this one if Play-Asia ships fast enough.
