Dragon’s Crown Pro Slated For A May 2018 Release

It’s time to do battle, remastered style

Atlus and SEGA have announced that Dragon’s Crown Pro, A remaster of the PS3 classic, now has a release date. 

The title is now set for release in the West on May 15, 2018, for the PlayStation 4/PlayStation 4 Pro. Dragon’s Crown Pro will be priced at $49.99 for the standard edition. There’s also the Dragon’s Crown Pro Battle-hardened Edition, which is also priced at $49.99 but is only available as a pre-order bonus.

 

This remaster of 2013’s acclaimed 2-D hack and slash couch co-op, beat ’em up action game from Vanillaware and Atlus will be returning to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro in 2018. With updated visuals and presentation for the current-gen, hunting for treasure in the Kingdom of Hydeland has never been more rewarding.

Dragon’s Crown Pro retains all the gameplay elements of the original game, including Vanillaware’s gorgeous 2-D visual flair and character design, but adds current-gen upgrades.

Key Features

  • Visuals Fit for an Ancient Dragon – With beautifully refined artwork and 4K resolution support, Vanillaware’s signature art style will come alive as you bludgeon, cleave, shoot, and loot through the dungeons of Hydeland.
  • A Rousing Adventurer’s Soundtrack – A newly recorded soundtrack by fabled composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, supported by a live orchestra, will accompany daring treasure hunters on their search for the Dragon’s Crown.
  • Glorious Presentation – Rejoice because English and Japanese audio options will now be available! Plus, game text will be localized in French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
  • All the Royal Bells and Whistles – If you already own Dragon’s Crown, your saves won’t go to waste. There will be online cross-play & cross-save compatibility with existing PS3 and Vita versions. Oh, and all patches, features, and the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC from the original game will be included!
  • Four Player Frenzy – With the fun local couch co-op and online multiplayer you remember, up to four players can experience countless hours battling together.

I loved this game on the PS3 and I can’t wait to jump back into it again. I already have my copy pre-ordered. How about you?
