Vanillaware and ATLUS have today announced that the 2-D hack and slash, beat 'em up action title Dragon's Crown will be making its way to Western shores this year. Players will be bludgeoning, cleaving, shooting and looting their way through intricate side-scrolling dungeons with six powerful adventurers and their unique abilities available for players to explore the fantastical world of Hydeland with.
"Dragon's Crown is one of the most perfect games I've ever played," said Naoto Hiraoka, president and chief executive officer, Index Digital Media, Inc. "The amazing game design and artwork are among the best in any console generation, and the cooperative gameplay is highly addictive."
Groups of adventurers will be challenged in the labyrinthine dungeons surrounding the medieval fantasy kingdom of Hydeland. As they explore deeper into the dungeons, non-player characters such as Samuel the Adventurer's Guild leader and Lucain, the wizard come in to play with quests and tasks, which slowly unravel the story behind the ultimate treasure, the Dragon's Crown.
Dragon's Crown will be available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems, and feature up to four-person cooperative play for adventurers to band together and conquer monsters, titans, and dragons in search of the ultimate treasure.
