Dragon’s Crown is VanillaWare’s most expensive project

PlayStation action RPG out now in Japan.

Dragon’s Crown might still be two weeks away from North American shores, but it’s available at retailers starting today in Japan. And to commemorate the game’s release, VanillaWare founder and lead artist George Kamitani has taken to Twitter with some new artwork and information.

Dragon’s Crown is actually the first title our company has developed that has gone over the 100 million yen (around one million dollars) wall in costs,” he said. “I’m very thankful to have met the release date without problems.”

The Atlus-published action RPG is due out for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on August 6 in North America and this fall in Europe.
