Updated OP with preorder bonus ("Dragon's Crown Artworks" 64pg art book for both Vita and PS3 versions), retailers who are offering preorders, preorder links, new videos, preview from IGN, etc.

This game is shaping up to be very nice; I'm watching for Newegg preorder bonus codes to get one or both of these preordered.

Just a heads up: Free DLC for early adopters until a month after launch. Now this is what I consider day one DLC done right. It not only rewards purchasers at launch but also makes the company money after the initial release, or aftermarket sales. It's just additional voice acting to fit your preference (horse armor anyone?) but it's still a nice gesture considering how dick-ish companies like Capcom can be for far less.

Only about two months away now; can't wait to try this game out!

They had me at the art book, otherwise I was going to wait for a price drop, even though I think this game is pretty awesome.

Preordered the PS3 version because my Vita is at maximum capacity with more games waiting to be loaded onto it once I beat the ones currently loaded...

Yeah the artbook will be sweet. I was just waiting on amazon to update the preorder bonus listing. Been hyped for this game since they started doing the character reveals.

Totally playing as the dwarf first and throwing boulders at stuff.

I beat and loved both Odin's Sphere and GrimGrimoire, but I will be passing on this game. Mainly because I strongly dislike the artwork. Just sharing my irrelevant opinion.

Quick update:  Amazon and Target currently have Dragon's Crown preorders slightly discounted (OP has been updated with new prices and has links to the games on most websites):

 

PS3 - 45.39

Vita - 37.19

 

Target still doesn't list the artbook as a preorder bonus though, only Amazon and GS explicitly list that.

Unfortunately they still don't list the artbook as a preorder bonus for either Vita or PS3 version on the BB product pages, which would make me not want to preorder this game from BB.  I already preordered both versions from Amazon since they offer a slight discount and they explicitly list the artbook as a preorder bonus for each version.

I preordered this game a year ago from Newegg because they offered a $10 off coupon code.  Today I got this e-mail:

 

Thank you for shopping at Newegg.com

Unfortunately, we have been unable to fill the Pre-Order listed below, and it has now been cancelled by our system.  Here are the details for your reference:

I'm guessing they cancelled it because the order had been open for a year, but that seems silly since they always have pre-orders for games that are over a year away from release.  I'd had second thoughts about buying the game, though, so I don't think I'm going to contact them about it.  Still, that's just weird.

Amazon put Dragon's Crown up way too early as well (when Ignition was going to publish it, which later changed to Atlus), and I preordered both the Vita and PS3 versions (@ $29.99 for each version, very low prices).  They cancelled both preorders when that publisher backed out (or fell through), then they put up new product pages later when Atlus took over the publishing (at the new higher prices of $40 Vita and $50 PS3).  I think your Newegg order met the same fate as my early Amazon orders. 

 

Honestly, you're better off ordering this from either Amazon or GS (and possibly BB if they ever update their product pages) to make sure you get the artbook. Newegg still doesn't list that as a preorder bonus, so you can't count on them providing it, and it's probably worth getting when you pick up the game.  Amazon has both versions slightly discounted so that helps a little too.

^ At least I saw reports of Amazon honoring their previous prices so you can still see if you can get it for $30 a pop. Newegg, unfortunately, your SOL.

Got my today also...  Looks to be a 1 year preorder limit.  I'm talking to customer service right now.  Will update soon.

 

Edit: Got blamed for the cancellation and told I could reorder it.  Linked to your above post to prove otherwise and then was told they would honor the 10 dollar off coupon if I reordered.  (The funds would be given back 3-5 days later.  A note was left on my account and all I would have to do is contact them again or email Emma directly.)

 

Its newegg so I feel I should trust them but this really rubbed me the wrong way...

Don't know Japanese at all, but I am guessing there will be cross platform multiplayer.

newegg has been sketchy regarding preorders, sometimes they oversold on it, and cancel preorders. I would advise against preordering from newegg, if you really want your game. Unless, you do not care.

Absolutely, I have it preordered from Amazon, both versions (Vita and PS3). Love this style of game and really want to support it, and I want the artbooks too which is what pushed me over the edge to preorder from Amazon (GS offers the artbooks too, BB supposedly is going to but not confirmed on their product pages yet).

On a related note, a new series of Dragon's Crown preview videos from IGN started today. There will be one new video every day this week about different aspects of the game. The article title on IGN is: "IGN's Dragon's Crown Week is Coming Soon". Here's the article link:

http://www.ign.com/a...-is-coming-soon

The first video (Monday July 8) is about character classes. Next videos coming up will be:

Tuesday July 9 - The Loot and Equipment System, Fully Explained
Wednesday July 10 - The Finer Points of Combat
Thursday July 11 - Exploring the World of Hydeland
Friday July 12 - Meet the Enemies (and Bosses!)

I pre-ordered the game from Amazon. I was planning on getting it at or near launch anyway, but the artbook pre-order bonus sealed the deal for me. I love Vanillaware's art, an artbook for their latest title is right up my alley.

 

I also picked up Muramasa: Rebirth for the Vita, and got some time to play it over the 4th of July weekend. The game looks absolutely gorgeous on the Vita. It also controls really well. I have a copy of it for the Wii, but the Wiimote was never the right way to play that game. It really gets a chance to shine on the Vita with higher-definition graphics that really show off the colorful art.

Hmmm... I want to pre-order both, but $90 is a big sum of money just for convenience. Wish I got in when amazon had it cheaper.

Haven't seen anyone post this yet, so here are some sample pages from the art book.  It's only the cover and five pages to preview with one being the content page in Japanese, but It still looks like a worthwhile bonus.

Yeah, I don't know if I'll go with Best Buy or Amazon...  I got 25 off at Best Buy but with Amazon I should get the art book with no fuss.

I believe it says you can play with up to 4 people and then it mentions cross save.

Only 1 trophy requires a level to achieve and only 1 character needs to do it. So in essence, unless the campaign is super long, probably only 50 hours.
