We’ve learned (via Eurogamer) that Vanillaware’s classic side-scrolling beat ’em up, Dragon’s Crown, has been removed from the European PlayStation Store.
The reasoning behind the game being taken down is actually an expired license from European distributor NIS America.
Despite the outage, Atlus is now picking up the game for digital re-distribution, and are working to bring the game back to the European PlayStation Network:
“With regards to our previous statements on Dragon’s Crown for the European PSN, we must extend our deepest apologies to Atlus and European fans regarding the incorrect information about the removal from this store.
“The removal of Dragon’s Crown from the European PSN was part of NIS America’s and Atlus’s mutual agreement on this title. We are happy to announce that Dragon’s Crown will be available directly from Atlus in Europe through PSN.
“Please look forward to Dragon’s Crown returning to the European PSN soon.”
