About The Game

A spiritual successor to the Sega Saturn title Princess Crown, Dragon's Crown is an online-enabled 2D co-op action RPG from Vanillaware, the makers of Muramasa and Odin Sphere.

The vast labyrinth lays spread out underground, the ruins situated below this city nothing more than its entrance.

Magic weilders, thier hearts blighted by the dark, have used their spells to connect all the land's ruins and monster lairs ointo one. They search, tirelessly, for the legendary treasure they know is to be found. It lies, patiently, somewhere within the corridors.

If it should fall into their hands, the entire land will be doused in blood before another day breaks.
