2D co-op brawler coming to North America
Atlus has announced the acquisition of North American publishing rights for Dragon’s Crown.
The cooperative action RPG is for both the PS3 and Vita. Licensing rights were transferred from UTW Ignition Entertainment to Index Digital Media, Atlus’s parent company. The transfer of these rights means that Atlus will now produce, publish, and distribute the game while its creative team will help the original developer Vanillaware.
Index Digital Media president Shinichi Suzuki said, “We are exceedingly proud to become a part of producing and publishing Dragon’s Crown. Vanillaware is a developer beloved for their tremendous visual talent and extraordinary attention to detail. Our previous collaboration with them, Odin Sphere, went on to sell over 350,000 units worldwide, entering the prestigious PS3 Greatest Hits library. While much work remains, we believe this collaboration will be well worth the wait.”
Dragon’s Crown is expected to be release sometime in 2013 in North America for the PS3 and Vita systems.
