Dragon's Crown is due out on 8/6/13 for both PS3 and Vita. It is produced by Vanillaware (will be published by Atlus). It's a 2D arcade/action/RPG game in the style of King of Dragons, Knights of the Round, Shadows of Mystara, and Princess Crown. Art directed by one of the same people who worked on the fantastic Princess Crown for the Sega Saturn.

Official website: http://www.atlus.com/dragonscrown/

Official Trailer E3 2011:

PREORDER BONUS

Preorders for Dragon's Crown from many retailers will include a 64 page artbook titled "Dragon's Crown Artworks". Official retailers listed on the Atlus website include Amazon, Newegg, FRYS, VGP, Gamestop, EB Games, Target, Wal Mart, and Best Buy. Here is information from the Atlus website about this preorder bonus:
 

 

Available for a limited time and only for preorders, "Dragon's Crown Artworks," the soft-cover art book, will be 64 pages of full-color drawings from Dragon's Crown. These include intricate drawings of characters in the game, lush environment backgrounds, and descriptions from George Kamitani, the creative mind behind Dragon's Crown. Also included in the art book will be commissioned illustrations of the Dragon's Crown universe from three prominent Japanese video game artists, Akira Yasuda (Akiriman), Kinu Nishimura, and Gouda Cheese (BENGUS). Sure to become a collectible, "Dragon's Crown Artworks" is available only while supplies last.

Sorry, I didn't see your original thread (last post was 6/9/11). I should have searched first . . . DOH! I just never saw any information about this game in the forums. My mistake.

Gotta admit, the character designs completely turn me off...tired of developers going after the T&A market. *PASS*.

Err, maybe it's just me but I saw it as stylized art a la Frank Frazetta. Pretty fitting and one of the main draws for me.

The art is basically Vanillaware's signature style. It is the same as GrimGrimoire and Odin Sphere.

Uh, did I miss the memo somewhere that this was canceled? Just got a notice from Amazon that it will not be released by the supplier on the expected date and it has been removed from my order. If this is some bullshit move by them to relist it at a higher price, there will be blood.

Same here, and yes that will be total garbage if that's what Amazon is up to.

Not canceled so far, but apparently Vanillaware has been having some problems. The NA Grand Knights History was pushed back from March to TBA because Xseed had trouble getting them to work on it.

Edit: Read it got delayed from April 2012 to "TBA 2012." Vanillaware is really fucking shit up lately...

Seriously...the only game from that original pre-order for me still going is Gungnir, now that DC orders have been cancelled and Grand Knights History is now TBD.

Someone mentioned Vanillaware needs to ramp up some staff to get their localizations done and their product out of the door (especially their PSP game) if they wait too long people are going to forget or not care or run into competition from Atlus or umm...Atlus. :lol:

When I opened the email I seriously thought they cancelled GKH, until I saw it was DC, I was like wtf is this all about, the game looks awesome they just need to get it out, and the $30 price tag would have made mad sales for those interested. We just need for them to get it out now...

The thing is, these games, especially Dragon's Crown, aren't super fucking epic RPGs that need a ton of translation work.

Well I'd disagree with GKH (see the Youtube vids of it in action, lotsa text in there, sadly some of it is already translated though =p ) but I agree with DC, but on the flip side even the stills the game is very pretty, so that kind of work must take some man hours to get done (see comment below).

I think if Vanillaware had more than 5 Japanese guys coding in the back of a Ramen shop they could get more done. ;)

Either that or they should look into partnerships with local translation companies and license those out to western publishing houses.

I like Xseed and all, but they need to grow too since they seem to be biting off more than they can chew here recently as well.

Hopefully around E3 these two games finally get some love and more importantly release dates. :D

Yeah, that's a curios bit... is it because of Atlus or because it really isn't feasible?:-k Then again, where did that $30 price tag come from?

Either way, a lot of people are now going to be pissed because of the price...

Well, maybe the pissed people can use the extra 6 months to save an extra $10-20...I'm just pleased this game is still coming. It sounds to me like Ignition had literally no idea what they were doing - throwing out a price point and release date so early in the development of the game that it had no basis in reality.

PSN or disc version being released? $30 seems like a low price for a PS3 disc copy. I can understand a physical copy on the Vita at that price. Looks fun, giggle physics seem like overkill.

Either way, a lot of people are now going to be pissed because of the price...

These are the specifics of what they said about it:

When we took over the reins, we realized that a lot of the information made available to the public was ambitious and unfounded conjecture. The release timing, the pricing, and many of the features detailed for fans and members of the press were simply unknowable at the time they were disseminated (and frankly we were quite shocked to find out that many of the details were made public unbeknownst to even the developers).

It’s still way too early in development to be talking about specifics, but we can say that the game simply cannot retail for $29.99. We don’t know where that price point came from, but it is a logistical impossibility. We’re all gamers and we all wished it could be so, but it would have essentially destroyed any chance for profitability.

Atlus is a good business, so they have a good idea about how much money it'll cost them to get it finished, produced, and sold at the price they're looking at. It's best for them to settle the price issue now so people can get upset now and be over it by the time it's out.

It would be nice if they could do a $40/$40 split with a bundle deal for $60 for those that want it, though I'm not sure this is the kind of game I'd really want on two platforms.

Yeah, hopefully more is revealed about the game and it has more robust features to make it worth the increased price. As it was it seemed only a little more than DLC level.

hmm missed this thread, but I had it preordered for 28.xx from my goldbox and it was cancelled. Now I know why. I had a feeling it was going to be delayed just because the website for it was so bad.
