ATLUS and Vanillaware’s RPG brawler Dragon’s Crown is one of our most anticipated games of the year. We’ve been playing our review copies of the game (Thanks, ATLUS!) here at the 30lives non-office for almost a week now and we haven’t even scratched the surface of this deep and satisfying adventure.

“If you are expecting a D&D Mystara clone, be prepared to be blown away.”

We’re not allowed to post specifics about the game yet because of the embargo (will be lifted on July 31st) but here are the things we can say about it:

  • Lots of things to do besides the main quest. Side-quests are very rewarding and you will want to complete them.
  • Artwork is amazing — as expected from developer Vanillaware.
  • The 6 character classes offer VERY different gameplay experience, providing much replay value.
  • Tons of equipment and skills to collect and learn.
  • I thought it would be the reverse, but Dragon’s Crown is more RPG than brawler IMHO. If you are expecting a D&D Mystara clone, be prepared to be blown away.

Dragon’s Crown releases on August 6 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Watch out for our official review on July 31st!
