Remember when we talked about Dragon’s Crown remastered edition coming to the PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 8th, 2018? Atlus has now confirmed that Dragon’s Crown Pro is getting a western release in Spring of 2018, meaning that you’ll be able to play it too on your PS4 couple of months after its first release.
The announcement came through a new Dragon’s Crown Pro Announcement Trailer on Atlus USA Youtube account, featuring gameplay content that we still haven’t seen.
In this new trailer, you can watch all classes in action, slaying bosses like Chimaira and Medusa through a series of hand-drawn dungeons. As it suggests Dragon’s Crown Pro includes refined artwork as well as 4K compatibility for the PlayStation 4 Pro. Its soundtrack is also revamped with the use of a live orchestra making its jRPG music even cooler.
The trailer description also gives you a hint about the game’s content, even though you can get hyped and want to grab it even by looking at this trailer since we don’t usually see such beautifully drawn video games:
Dragon’s Crown Pro features groups of heroes that face dreadful challenges 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 to complete. Use six adventurers (Fighter, Dwarf, Amazon, Wizard, Elf, and Sorceress) and their unique abilities to unravel the story behind the ultimate treasure, the Dragon’s Crown.
Atlus announced the new PS4 and PS4 Pro version of the game will cost $49.99 USD and will get its official release to the west in spring 2018.
The game got a good bit of controversy when it was first announced due to the over sexualization of characters like the Amazon and the Sorceress, but was a fairly solid and beautifully illustrated beat-em-up that still apparently won enough fans to get a remastered version.
