Previously on News Regarding Dragon’s Crown, Atlus took over publishing duties from UTV Ignition. They also started lending a hand in the actual development of the game. Since then, well not much else was known (outside of Atlus censoring the Amazon and the Sorceress in the U.S. side of the official website). The trailer itself is pretty short, but quite a few new things are shown. For starters, we see some new art for all the characters. We can also see what seems to be player indicators over each character’s head and damage output numbers for attacks. We also see some new locales not seen in the initial trailer, including a ruined tower that can be traversed from the inside and outside via magic carpet. Finally, we see more of that mysterious merchant-like person that followed the heroes in the previous trailer. This time, he’s accompanied by a fairy.
Many feared that the game was in trouble after reports surfaced that developer Vanillaware were having problems making both Grand Knights History and Dragon’s Crown at the same time. The troubles piled on after XSEED cancelled GKH‘s localization since Vanillaware would have to do the programming (XSEED lacks this), and they already had their hands full. Now that GKH is released in Japan, they can now focus on Dragon’s Crown development. Atlus is also reported to begin talking about the game this March. Screenshots from the trailer after the break.
Rejoice! Vanillaware’s Dragon’s Crown gets a new trailer! [Japanator]
I must admit i am drooling for this awesome looking game. I absolutely 100% cant wait for this game and i am a huge fan of vanillaware and atlus. I enjoyed odin sphere and i’m looking forward to this game. I am highly excited for this game. I am longing for this game. Ive been looking at and thinking about this game ever since i found out about it. Ive looked at both trailers for this game and they both look amazing. Ive seen the new screenshots of this game, including the ones above and they look fantastic. I am glad this game is coming out. I cant wait to receive this game in my hands.
It’s also got that cool, old-school Golden Axe vibe to it, I know quite a few are clamoring for good co-op game in that style, especially James and Prota in the staff.
That reminds me, I gotta hurry up and finish that last chapter in Odin Sphere. Finished Velvet’s but never went further due to college work back then.
