  • That was beautiful and I am crossing my fingers for that art book. I love that Vanillaware listened to the fan request for an art book while they were working with Ignition. I am so excited for this game.

  • uhawww

    The wait for the end of July just got much more difficult.

  • Adol Christian

    They better release that artbook here :)

  • I don’t like the female character designs, as those huge boobs are not my cup of tea, but besides that it looks ace.

    • Yeah, the character design is for the most part pretty gross.

      The elf and wizard look nice.

    • Adol Christian

      I kinda agree with you. The knight and the elf look pretty nice.

    • Kobracon

      Which is weird considering their past releases. All the girls in Odins Sphere were great. Momohime from Muramasa. The main character from Grim Grimoire. The female designs in Grand Knights History. All good.

      I guess they decided to go full extreme in Dragon’s Crown. I mean did you SEE the other characters in there? They’re all HUUUGE

      • HUUUGE is the understatement of the day :P
        Momohime is awesome. The other character designs are amazing as well. So stoked for Oboro Muramasa!

      • DrForbidden

        I’ve always felt that many of the female characters in their previous games (including momohime) were rather loli, and I’m no fan of that. I prefer the DC women, to be honest.

      • z_merquise

        Do you remember the undead queen and Mercedes’ mom in Odin Sphere? How about Opalneria and one of the demon units in Grimgrimoire? Or Kongiku and Yuzuruha and the female monsters in Muramasa? Those characters have exaggerated figure as well.

        Nothing exactly changes in their art style then and now.

        • Kobracon

          True….but I think the Sorceress’ bust may best even Kongiku’s. And I’ve never seen design like the Amazon.

    • Elvick

      Elf looks great, but the amazon looks ridiculous. I’m fine with the Sorceress, but she would look better with smaller breasts. Her face is amazing.

  • This… Actually reminds me a lot of Castle Crashers. lol

  • XypherCode

    Freakin’ awesome! George Kamitani’s works are the best! Not to mention great gameplay! :))

  • GaySkull

    EPIC Awesomeness!

  • Jontaku

    No European release? Dammit Atlus

    • Region free platforms at least and in English.

  • HeatPhoenix

    Looks like standard fare beat ’em up. I’d like to see more of the gameplay.

  • Kobracon


  • PrinceHeir

    man those 2D backgrounds and art are amazing O____O

    definitely one of, if not the best 2D art game ever along with Blazblue, The King of Fighters XIII, and Rayman Origin/Legends!

  • great add to the list :D

  • Awesome trailer! =)

  • Aldridge517

    I had no idea this was a PlayStation game. Every time I saw it I just figured it was something for the 3DS

  • Kurisu Makise

    Did anyone else get that 90’s Beat em up Nostalgia after that trailer?

    • z_merquise

      Yes! That’s what the game is aiming for. And being a fan of the genre, I’m happy that it isn’t forgotten.

      • Kurisu Makise

        Never shall we forget. All of my youth was in that genre and platformers. Though I preferred Beat em Up’s even more than platforming at the time, especially with Co-op.

    • Raoni Marques

      Definitely. Lately I’ve been on quite a nostalgic game sessions, playing beat em ups as much as I can. Beat AvP, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, Battle Circuit, Violent Storm and some others. I’m just happy this game is coming soon, and so is D&D remastered. Can’t wait to play both games online!

      • Kurisu Makise

        Then I’ll definitely see you there no doubt! Oh the multiplayer mayhem this game will have.

        • Raoni Marques

          You bet we’ll see each other! I’ll be playing this non-stop when it’s out. I’ll probably get both versions!

  • My wife saw me watching the video as she walked by and saw the chick with big breasts hanging nearly out and rolled her eyes. Not exactly the best moment to understand what I was watching.

    Dat Sorceress.
