Atlus has announced a delay for Dragon’s Crown Pro.

The newly updated version of the VanillaWare-developed action RPG will forgo its January 2018 release for one a month later, on February 8th. Featured above, you can view a somewhat-updated version of the game’s announcement trailer.

The game will support up to 4K resolution, as well as cross-play with users on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita (and save data importing). The game’s soundtrack has been completely re-recorded by a live orchestra.

Finally, Atlus confirmed first-run copies of the game will come with a digital game book “Treasure of Demon Island.” A western release hasn’t been confirmed yet – however it shouldn’t be too long. We’ll keep you guys posted!

    Yeah yeah, but where is Grimgrimoire HD/4K remaster?

    I need this game

  • I’m kinda hoping they add on a couple more new things, like new stages and characters (Roland and that nun come to mind). Though if they’re saying that they want to have cross-play between the Vita and PS3 version, I doubt they’ll do it.

    I believe Vanillaware is focusing all their team on Aegis 13, while this thing is mostly a quick way to finance their budget
