Dragon’s Crown Receives “Ultimate Difficulty” Level in Latest Update

If you’ve been easily rampaging through Dragon’s Crown then perhaps it’s time to take on a bigger challenge. A new update has been released for the game which adds a new ‘Ultimate Difficulty’ level and raises the level cap to help players take down more challenging enemies.

To access the mode, players must clear the ninth layer of the Labyrinth of Chaos; after which the new difficulty will be accessible in the Temple.

John Hardin, PR manager of the game’s publisher Atlus, wrote on the PlayStation Blog that it would “make things harder”.

“But harder monsters mean players need to be better, stronger and faster, so we’re raising the level cap from 99 to 255. You read that right, you now have 156 levels to grind out.

He continued saying that the grinding doesn’t necessarily mean going through the same levels over and over again. “Once you’re on Ultimate difficulty, there will be a new dungeon unlocked, called the Tower of Mirages. It’s randomly generated and it has tens of thousands of levels. TENS. OF. THOUSANDS. I say this with all sincerity, since I know some of you are going to try to KO it: ‘Good luck.'”

The latest update also brings more stability to the game, with tweaks to character skills and controls.
