Vanillaware’s Dragon’s Crown Is Finally Coming To PS4

by Jelani James


Vanillaware’s Dragon Crown remains one of the strongest titles on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. If anything, its greatest flaw is that it came just before the launch of the PlayStation 4, so many wound up not playing it anymore (unless they happened to have the unpopular Vita) once they upgraded their console.

Many had been clamoring since then for a Dragon’s Crown PS4 port and it looks like they might get their wish if a banner that briefly appeared today on the mobile version of the Japanese website Nico Nico is to be believed, per Hachima Kikou.


It reads “PS4 Dragon’s Crown Pro” and “Pre-Orders For Limited Edition Version Begin!”

Of course, pre-orders aren’t actually up, as this is a leaked announcement and it probably won’t be until Atlus gives its presentation on Sunday, which will be streamed on Nico Nico, or at least a day or two before it.

To be clear, this is still technically a rumor until Atlus makes an official statement about it, but it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that this is the real deal. Dragon’s Crown, as stated before, has been one of the strongest titles on the PS3 and PS Vita ever since its debut in 2013; and fans have always been wondering about a potential Dragon’s Crown PS4 port since the console hit the market.

If Dragon’s Crown Pro does become a reality, then one had to wonder about what the game will include. At the very least, we can expect content that came later in the game’s life cycle, such as Labyrinth of Chaos, to be included right off the bat. But is there a chance for new content to make its way in as well? Even just two new classes would be a welcome addition, though a new level or two, or added routes to the pre-existing ones would be fine too.

That said, anything related to Dragon’s Crown at TGS 2017 was completely unexpected, so perhaps a surprise announcement about 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, which many had been looking forward to, may be possible — though still highly unlikely.
