Dragon's Crown Pro Officially Announced for the West in Spring 2018

Vanillaware's 2D hack and slash lives again.

Dragon's Crown Pro, and updated version of Vanillaware's dungeon fantasy game first announced at this year's Tokyo Game Show, will find its way westward in Spring 2018.

The remastered version of the 2013 hack and slash is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro for $49.99. The western release will come with all the same features announced back at TGS.

That means updated visuals (4K support on Pro), a newly recorded soundtrack from composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, English and Japanese audio, and all the content from the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC. There's even going to be cross-play and cross-save compatibility with the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game.

Dragon's Crown Pro is a fantasy game that combines Vanillaware's distinctive art style with the traditional dungeon crawling fantasy element. The game garnered some controversy when it first came out in 2013 due to the depiction of some of its character designs for the female characters.
