Reigning champion

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 wearing a wizard’s hat.

The game’s due out on 25th July in Japan, and if you pre-order early you’ll get a 64-page art book as a bonus. The tome will include illustrations from the developer, as well as additional artwork sketched by Kinu Nishimura, Bengus, and Akira Yasuda. Yes, we assume that there’ll be pictures of the sorceress in there, too.

There’s no word on a western release date just yet, but we can’t imagine that the international launch will be too far behind. Looks good, doesn’t it?
