Ignition Entertainment and VanillaWare have announced a joint venture to develop a new game for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Dragon’s Crown, currently being shown off at E3, is VanillaWare’s first game ever to feature high-definition visuals. The developer is known for its work on titles such as Odin Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

Set for release in 2012 on both systems, Dragon’s Crown features four-player co-op on a single screen, real time online gameplay, character customization options, and six “wildly different” classes to play. It’s set in a medieval world where dungeons are yours to explore, monstrosities are yours to smite, and adventure is yours to experience.

Dragon’s Crown on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita will offer the same gameplay, as Ignition says not to expect the portable version be scaled back in any way. According to the publisher, “the game will offer the same fluid hand-drawn animation, blazing special effects, and haunting soundtrack on both PS3 and the new PS Vita.” Special connectivity features between the two will be announced at a later date.

See the debut trailer for Dragon’s Crown below.

      Is this like a multiplayer brawler btw? Seems pretty awesome like that. Like TMNT for Genesis/SNES lol.

      But yea, bringing PS3/Vita features to the game, that’s cool.
