Dragon's Crown Pro for PS4 Looks Majestic in New Trailer; Shows PS4 vs PS3 Comparison and More

Atlus shows a new trailer of Dragon's Crown Pro, which will bring the glory of the popular 2D side-scroller to PS4 next year.

Today Atlus released a new trailer of its upcoming Dragon’s Crown PS4 remaster Dragon’s Crown Pro.

The trailer gives us a look at the renewed visuals of the game, that will run in native 4K on PS4 Pro and in 1080p on standard PS4.

We get a comparison with PS3 graphics, a mention of the fact that multiplayer will be cross-platform with PS3 and PS Vita, and a look at the colorful characters, enemies, levels and features that will grace the new release.

At the end of the trailer, we see the day one purchase bonus, which comes in the form of a digital “Dragon’s Crown Game Book” which is exactly what you think it is, a retro “choose your own adventure” book in digital form. You can also see its cover and pages sample at the bottom of the post.

Interestingly, we also learn that (probably not unexpectedly) the touch pad on the PS4 Pro will be usable to control the cursor on the game.

You can check it out below, and bask in the glory of Vanillaware’s art by George Kamitani, that sets this and other games by the niche Japanese developer apart from the rest. On top of the trailer, you can also see a recording of the stage show from Tokyo Game Show.

If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first gameplay videos and the first screenshots. If you’re unfamiliar with the title, you can also read my original review of the PS3 version from 2013.

Dragon’s Crown Pro will release in Japan on February 8th, 2018 exclusively for PS4. At the moment, no western release has been announced, but it would be a crime if Atlus USA did not bring this game this side of the Pacific Ocean.

I’ll chain myself in front of their offices if I have to.
