    Really? I figured it would have broken 1,000,000 by this point.

  • MrFinalgamer

    And this was because of the sorcerer’s amazing rack, and the Amazon’s ass…thank you. =’)

    • shogunknight

      And the awesome gameplay….the AWE-SOME gameplay

  • Rafael Martines

    Would be cool if Dragon’s Crown get DLC’s too… but I’m ok, right now I’m focus on get Muramasa Platinum and then get the awesome DLC’s :)

    • stephane3012

      Getting that platinum was nerve wrecking but felt so rewarding! :)

      • Rafael Martines

        Hell yeah, I did the first ending for both Kisuke and Momohime on Fury, now I’ll do the second ending and then… try the evil caves to get the swords needed for Muramasa :P

  • CerealKiller

    Wondeful game, I love it.

  • Unretributed

    On a rumored $1 million budget? Sounds like a good return.

    Now bring on a new Dragon’s Crown on the PS4! Create a chat party, play my future game of the year like DC was, and I’m set. Absolutely loved DC, still have my retail copy and bought it digitally too.

  • epy

    Thank you to all the silly social justice warriors that made a big deal out of this. Your controversy just added to the sales.

  • PrinceHeir

    Amazing stuff Vanillaware!!

    And lol Fuck you Kotaku.

  • Sirichanh

    I’ve still yet to get this game, I need to get it ASAP -.-

    • z_merquise

      You should get it soon. It’s one of the games I will really recommend especially if you like 2D beat-em-ups.

  • Hidayat246

    wow that sales 0_o
    never think Vanillaware can make such huge sales after change publisher

    • z_merquise

      The game made a lot of attention already when it was first announced that it instantly generate so many fan art especially in Pixiv.

      But I guess the way Atlus handle the promotion of the game helped too.

      • Hidayat246

        ah, yeah forgot about atlus LOL

  • z_merquise

    Oh man that’s double the good news!

    I’m so happy for Vanillaware. Dragon’s Crown is so awesome and it really deserve the good reception and sales it get.

    Plus Muramasa DLCs are amazing and the kind of DLC I really want to see. I’ll look forward to the 4th DLC.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Wasn’t the games budget only roughly the equivalent of 1 million USD?

  • Zackasaur

    I guess they lost hope on waiting for a one million sold announcement. lulz

    It’s a good game, if a bit tasteless. Muramasa is definitely more my style, both in gameplay and art direction.

    Congrats to Vanillaware!

    • z_merquise

      They just commemorate the game’s release in Japan which was July 25, 2013 so they just posted the current sales no. for the game a year after its release.

      • Zackasaur

        Ah, that makes sense. It was a bit weird to see an announcement for 940,000. lulz

      • PrinceHeir

        Damn the game is already a year now!

        Time sure flies by!

    • buddyluv324

      That’s just the thing with one of the reasons that DC has gotten such buzz before release. Instead of letting the creators do what they feel fits for their vision and letting the consumer decide on whats tasteful and what’s not, the likes of Kotaku, Polygon, etc. seem to force their views as if they’re absolute and shamming those who oppose their views. There’s really no right or wrong when it comes to artistic vision. You’re either for the style or you’re not. That’s what art is. But thanks to the overblown “controversy” I think it partially helped reach the sales numbers by getting people more curious about the game enough to play the game which is the exact opposite on what the nay-sayers may have wanted.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Now, if only we could get some new content for this.

  • Elle

    I hope they make a sequel with more depth.

  • Elvick

    Do a couple more digital sales to knock it over a million! ;D

    I was two sales, got it on PS3 and PS Vita, got two of the art books too. :3

  • Jay

    Well deserved Vanillaware… Now begin work on part 2 with more classes and stages.

    • Cheesy04

      I like how you think! What classes though? I want more ranged characters with tricky targeting like the Elf class.

      • Jay

        Hmm, maybe a Ninja or Thief with quick ground to air combos and throwing knives. And maybe a Samurai with more of a focus on countering and well timed heavy strikes.

        • Cheesy04

          Sounds good but Ninja and Samurai feels out of place with the general theme of the game :/

          • Jay

            Good point, but maybe the next game they would fit ;)

            • Cheesy04

              Oh! Muramasa Rebirth setting!? O___O

              • Jay

                Would be nice, wouldn’t it?
