Dragon’s Crown, a 2D action RPG currently in development at Vanillaware (that worked on Odin Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade) was supposed to be published stateside by UTV Ignition Entertainment. Last week we learned that the company relinquished the publishing rights in favor of Atlus USA.
Lokesh Dhar, senior vice president of UTV Ignition Entertainment, released an official statement on the handover, that you can read after the cut.
“While we are saddened to no longer be associated with the Dragon’s Crown project, we are very confident that the title is in excellent hands with Atlus. Since the initial announcement, information on timing and features in the game have changed and other details regarding design and functionality are yet to be determined. We are confident that Atlus and Vanillaware will deliver the finest game possible.”
Dragon’s Crown will be available next year on PS3 and PS Vita.
