Showered in riches
A royal affair like Dragon’s Crown was never going to eschew pre-order bonuses.

Legs like tree trunks
We’re pretty confident that you could see the thighs of Dragon’s Crown’s playable Amazon character from space. Her extraordinary muscles pave the way for plenty of power, as this brand new trailer demonstrates.

Kind of magic
The wizard is without a doubt the best dressed class in Vanillaware’s upcoming Dragon’s Crown. Not only does the protagonist wear a stylish, silk cloak, but he’s also rocking some slick undergarments and leather boots. You can catch the character conjuring an asteroid shower from a magical tome in the trailer embedded below. The...

All of a quiver
Fortunately, there’s at least one character in Dragon’s Crown that knows how to dress properly. Atlus has deployed a brand new trailer for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita brawler’s Elf, demonstrating the protagonist’s ranged attacks and respectable clothing. The full title’s due out on 6th August in North America, but...
Friday19th Apr 2013
If you felt that the previous Dragon’s Crown trailer showed a little too much skin, then you’ll probably be equally displeased with this brand new footage focusing on the Dwarf. Rather than equip himself with clothing and body armour, he prefers to wander around partially nude. Still, at least he's got that big beard to cover up a bit...

Must be cold
Video game characters are renowned for their impractical dress sense, but we reckon that Dragon's Crown’s enchanted Sorceress class takes things to the next level. If we were venturing through grotty catacombs, we’d very much want to keep ourselves covered up – but the title’s magical character type seems content with letting it...

It's a big one
Atlus has unsheathed a brand new trailer for its upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita brawler, Dragon’s Crown. The full game features six classes, but this footage focuses on the Fighter.

Tastier than nacho cheese and bacon on crispy fries
If hotly anticipated PlayStation 3 and Vita brawler Dragon’s Crown was an animal, it would probably be a kitten wearing a big pink bow. Vanillaware has released a brand new trailer for the co-operative beat ‘em up, which introduces you to the cast of the game and also shows off a euphoric mouse...

Info for the fangs
Vanillaware's hotly anticipated Dragon's Crown for Vita and PS3 will reach the West in 2013. The gorgeous hand-drawn action RPG has switched publishers from UTV Ignition to Atlus, which seems a better fit to us: Atlus published previous Vanillaware title Odin Sphere on PS2, and that turned out all right. Last month we heard...
