Relive your childhood of gaming with Dragon’s Crown, a 2D beat-em-up brought to you by Vanillaware. In this fantasy world of knights and wizards, you’ll hack and slash your way through a series of dungeons, collecting loot and vanquishing evil.
Choose from one of six character classes, each with their own fighting styles and dangerous combinations. The Fighter is your typical melee-heavy character, equipped with swords and axes. The Dwarf is similar to the fighter, but equipped for more offense and able to throw enemies across the screen. The Amazon is the final melee character and focuses exclusively on relentless offense. If you’re a magic-oriented player, choose from the Wizard or the Sorceress. The Wizard primarily utilizes devastating fire magic and can create wood golems from crates, while the Sorceress combines offensive magic, defensive magic, and the ability to raise skeletal minions. Finally, the Archer shoots enemies from afar with a bow and arrows.
During the main story of Dragon’s Crown, you’ll explore a variety of hand-drawn dungeons, full of monsters and loot. But don’t worry, you won’t go at it alone. Choose up to three additional AI characters to follow you into battle. Additionally, Ranni the rogue and Tiki the fairy will follow you on your journey, unlocking chests and doors and guiding you toward hidden treasure. Speaking of treasure, each dungeon features a series of treasure chests and one major boss to provide you with more loot than you know what to do with. After each quest, you’ll be given the option to appraise your loot, and either sell or keep it.
Dragon’s Crown also provides an intense multiplayer experience. Fight your way through the game with three close friends or three complete strangers. To expand this experience, a patch unveiled in October 2013 added cross-play capability, allowing PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita users to play simultaneously.
Dragon’s Crown is playable on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It released in Japan on July 25th, 2013; North America on August 6th, 2013; and Europe on October 11, 2013. For the latest news, reviews, guides and more, click the button below.
