If you pre-order Dragon's Crown from "participating stores" (most likely the ones listed on the pre-order page, such as Amazon, GameStop, etc.), you'll get a free 64-page artbook:

Spoiler


The book includes illustrations of the characters, environments, and commissions from artists Akira Yasuda (Darkstalkers, Marvel vs. Capcom), Kinu Nishimura (Code of Princess, Virtue’s Last Reward), and Gouda Cheese AKA BENGUS (Super Street Fighter II, Darkstalkers).

The game will be available August 10th. Important thing to note is that you can only play online with people who have it for the same system you do, so you can't go online with your Vita to play with PS3 owners & vice versa. However, you can still transfer your saves if you own both versions of the game.

I would be embarrassed to have such a thing in my house. What if a child was to see it?! This game is what is wrong with the video game industry! Ban this trash!

I hope this is sarcasm.

Anyways, do I want this art book that bad? Hmmm.

Yeah I'll probably get it.

p.s. It's okay to admit that the artwork is potentially problematic for some people while still enjoying it personally.

p.p.s. Boobs exist.

Amazon updated all of my preorders in the past if any bonuses came up. I didnt have to do cancel and reorder.

I preordered Soul Sacrifice way before any preorder bonuses were announced, and I still got the codes heh..

I remember I did, but now it was as if I never pre-ordered. Its like they removed the listing and relisted or something and voided my pre-order.
Because I KNOW I preordered a long time ago.

The thing I don't like about this is, is that gamestop and amazon don't even list the pre-order bonus.

Don't be too jealous, only a very select few people who took it up with CS will be getting that price. Amazon cancelled all of the $30 preorders ages ago.

It does seem like a pretty clear violation of their own price guarantee policy but, eh, what are ya gonna do.

When was this? I am only noticing that my order vanished when I saw this art book pre order bonus. And I searched through my amazon and newegg preorders and came up with nothing. Who do I complain to. $20 is a big deal.

The order disappeared from my account too, but I still had the initial email. Got on live chat, gave them the order#, and they told me it was because it changed publishers and was a different company, so essentially it was a different product.. or something to that effect.

Anyway, they still honored the PS3 version for $29.99 without any hassle. :D

What a bummer, I had long deleted those e-mails. LUCKILY I dug through newegg and I actually DO have a preorder with them for $38. So not a total loss. But still. I know for a fact I had that at $30 at Amazon. I'm just glad I never canceled the newegg order.

I guess I need to try it too then. I'm a CAG, $20 is a big deal. :) Still not going to get my hopes up but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Edit: Mind sharing exactly how you got them to comply? I want to go in prepared.
