Don't watch if you want to be completely spoiler free (contains a boss type character).  The last few minutes are nuts.

Hadn't really thought much about this game until recently. Watched some gameplay vids and it looks pretty fun, just pre-ordered it for the Vita. Better late than never I suppose.

In case anyone's keeping score, seems Best Buy (at least as of today) is not carrying this in store.  Online only.

I see that. There is however ship to store options, for some stores, so you can probably have CS do it for you and still use the coupon as you originally intended.

The downside is the wait time.

New Patch Will Allow PS3 and PS Vita Cross Platform Multiplayer

 

One of the few flaws of Vanillaware’s Dragon’s Crown is that it didn’t allow cross platform gameplay between players using the PS3 and PS Vita version. Luckily, that’s going to change with the patch released today in Japan, and that will probably follow soon on the North American version. At long last we’ll be able to play with our friends regardless of the platform they’re using.
 
Here are the full patch notes.
 
Improved stability under certain circumstances.
Cross-play is now possible for co-op gameplay, matching players with the PS3 and PS vita versions.
It’s now possible to set a on/off toggle to protect items so that they’re not accidentally sold or discarded.
In the “Game Setting 2″ screen is now possible to toggle NPC joining on and off.
The behavior and effects of the skills of each class has been adjusted.
Conditions for matching in the Labyrinth of Chaos has been relaxed. Now it’s possible to join regardless of the number of rounds.
Other tweaks have been implemented in order to improve the system across the board and comfort of operation.

Well that's some splendid ass news.  Also, item protection toggle!  Looks like I'll be jumping back in to try and get up to the labyrinth.

hoping for a sale on the Vita version soon. $30-40 is still too much for me when so many good games can be had for $20 or less.

You can add me too, MildObstruction.  Just threw it back in the ol vita tonight.  I'll have to relearn what I'm doing but shouldn't take long.

Started up my second character last night trying to plow through the intro levels to get in to online play.  Man, it drags the second time around.  It really is amazing how different the characters play though - I went from a tankish dwarf to a squishy early level wizard so I guess it should feel different, but still.  

 

It's a good game.  I think I might be ready to be done with it, but at the very least I'm going to grind levels to get my dwarf to the end game - I'd like to see it.  29 levels until 99 feels like it's going to take a while...

"Dragon’s Crown Gets New Patch, “Ultimate” Difficulty, Raises Cap to Level 255, Opens New Dungeon"
 
Atlus just released a new patch of the PS3/PS Vita side scrolling JRPG Dragon’s Crown, bringing quite a few interesting new elements to the game. Here are the full patch notes:
 
[Bug Fix]
Improved operational stability under certain circumstances.
 
[Added Features]
If you clear the ninth level of the Labyrinth of Chaos you can now select the “ultimate”  level of difficulty at the temple.
When you’re playing on “ultimate” you can access the new automatically generated dungeon “Sky Road of Dreams.”
On “ultimate” difficulty the level cap has been raised from level 99 to level 255.
Both the up arrows and the L button can now be individually used as item shortcuts.
Damage can now be displayed as a total number.
Silhouettes can now be displayed on the foreground to improve visibility.
On a save game with a cleared game it’s possible to skip the initial phase of the story with new characters and start with the search for the talismans.
It’s possible to skip quests that have already been completed once.
 
[Operational Improvements]
Adjusted skill effects and actions for each class.
Adjusted behavior of NPCs.
Adjusted effects and rules of equipment and items in the Arena.
Made all round improvements to the system in order to enhance operability and ease of use.
That’s definitely a big patch, and those that loved the game like me will now have two and a half as many levels worth of progression. We’ll have to see just how nightmarish the new level of difficulty will be.
 
It’s worth mentioning that for the moment the patch has been released only in Japan, but Atlus USA is normally quite quick at localizing them.

In case anyone missed it (though it is mentioned in Frisky's PSN sale threads), Dragon's Crown (digital version) is on sale for 17.49 (same price for Vita and PS3, but not cross-buy), through Monday 3/3/14. Since I really love the game and want to support the devs, I double-dipped and bought both versions (already had the retail ones). Really love having it on the Vita digitally, can play anytime without changing the cart!
