Dragon’s Crown Removed from the PlayStation Store Due to License Expiration

By   /   Jun 30, 2016
Dragon's Crown

Dragon’s Crown was a part of the PlayStation Store’s Japanese publisher sale but no one is able to buy it for a discounted price. In fact, no one is able to buy it at all.

Fans digged around the digital realm in search of an explanation as to what’s going on. Finally, earlier NISEurope revealed that its license, issued by Atlas, has expired so they were forced to take down the game from PlayStation Store.


This would have been OK if NISEurope gave a heads up at least but they remained silent which caused confusion over the situation. We don’t yet know of something is being done to resolve the situation.

You can still download the game from PlayStation Store but only if you already own a copy. Newcomers will have to settle for a different Japanese title.

On a related note, “Big in Japan” sale on PlayStation Store has some of the most amazing Japanese titles. There are 300 games on sale and Dragon’s Crown was one of them, sadly, it is removed as I mentioned above.
