Rumor: Dragon’s Crown due out August 6

Official announcement due later this week?

Atlus and VanillaWare’s action RPG Dragon’s Crown will launch for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America on August 6, according to an updated GameStop release list acquired by IGN. 

The same list also mentions Aksys and Marvelous AQL’s Muramasa Rebirth for June 26, XSEED and Marvelous’ Valhalla Knights 3 for September 4, and Falcom’s Ys: Memories of Celceta for September 25—all of which are also PS Vita games.

Atlus is teasing an update on Dragon’s Crown for this Thursday, so the timing on the leak is about right. Of course, don’t consider anything confirmed until we get the official word from Atlus.

        I followed andriasang.com very late (about 1 month before its closing) but now I moved to Gematsu as recommended by someone on the comments for Japanese gaming news.

      • Kurisu Makise

  • Elvick

    Hm… that would be awesome. 4 days after my birthday. :D

    Tearaway though… if that’s true. ):

      31 December 2013? That’s just the generic 2013 deadline for games which have no set release yet. c:

      All we learn from that date is that retailers expect it sometime this year.

      I for one can hardly wait~

    • PrinceHeir

      so advance? XD

  • tubers

    So with Q3-Q4 VITA software line-up.. seems to be a good time for an official VITA price drop..

    Hopefully…

    (1st Sony said last year there’ll be a 2013 price drop, then retracted the comment.. they also said they’ll be letting MS do the 1st move for the next gen but let the PS4 reveal happen much earlier

    TL;DR: don’t trust them)

    Japan had their massive Feb-Mar VITA software line-up and that’s when the price drop happened.

    • sherimae1324

      it will have a price drop oni-chan
      just a matter of time ^_^

      • tubers

        I really think it’s somewhere between Q3 and Q4.. not to mention that’s around the rumored release date for the PS4.

        It will only make the PSV a much tempting PS4 add-on with the price drop :D

        • sherimae1324

          hai! just like last year when we wait for game announcements like these. i just cant wait till e3
          now we are waiting for a global price drop and ofcourse more game announcements!
          and it will all be fine, im never expecting the vita to beat the 3ds in SALES but to beat it in QUALITY and VARIETY of games ^_^

    • http://www.squarealliance.com/ Zackasaur

      Actually, Sony said they would not rush the PS4 announcement just to beat MS to the punch. The point was that MS’s timing would not affect Sony’s either way.

      It just so happens that Sony were ready first.

  • http://www.squarealliance.com/ Zackasaur

    Jeez, that picture reminded me that we have a whole bunch of great Vita games coming!

    So glad I’ve had mine since launch.

  • PrinceHeir

    it’s funny how this was actually was supposed to be released in August 2012.

    so they delay it one year, understandable :)

    man been playing Hard Corps Uprising, and i can see how i miss 2D sidecroller games(shooter, beat em’ up)

    want this BADLY!!!

    • z_merquise

      I remember SNK mentioning that Metal Slug would “mark a great charge” (whatever that is) this 2013.

      All I wanted is a new HD 2D Metal Slug if that’s what they’re teasing.

      • PrinceHeir

        yeah i remember that last december.

        what the hell happened SNK O___O

        also do you think Samurai Shodown VII is sitll possible?? T__T

        • z_merquise

          Samurai Shodown is the fighting game I really really wanted to see in HD 2D other than Guilty Gear.

          It’s possible but the question is would SNK do it. I’m hoping they would.

          • PrinceHeir

            Guilty Gear 3 is already given don’t worry :P

            yeah KOF13 engine Samurai Shodown VII would be godly!!

            im still waiting for my Bloody Roar 5!!!!

  • z_merquise

    I’m so excited for the Dragon’s Crown update this week.

    And hey, Muramasa Rebirth’s (leaked) release is just few days after my birthday.

    EDIT:
    Since Dragon’s Crown is for PS3 and Vita, I just want to ask which version are you going to get? Playing this game on the go is cool but I think I’ll go with the PS3 version. Just wanted to re-live the good old days of playing beat-em-ups in SNES with my bros.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Both. Vanillaware goodness on my TV and on the go for me.

    • DrForbidden

      Haven’t decided, to be honest. The PS3 version will have large screen HD goodness, but between work and grad school, being able to sit in front of my TV for hours every day is increasingly a luxury. I may have to get the Vita version just to be able to play it regularly…

    • Rafael Martines

      If it will be Cross-Buy I will play both versions, if not… Vanillaware always will have my money… I’ll buy both XD

  • GaySkull

    Oh Yes!!!!

    Look at them games!

    Osamness!

    Oh that hits the spot!

    Thanks Gematsu!

  • GaySkull

    Sony HDMI cable video out pleez for PS Vita

    • sherimae1324

      maybe it has something to do with the mystery port
      well who knows tee-hee ^_^

    • Duc PC-QB

      Why ? If you want HD there is PS3 version here

      • Solomon_Kano

        Might be referring to the other listed titles. Tearaway, Soul Sacrifice, Ys Celceta, Muramasa, VK3.

  • HassanJamal

    Damn, no tearaway date :C
