Dragon Fin Soup Hits PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Tuesday, Free for PS Plus

Ash Monif's Avatar Posted by on Oct 30, 2015 // Co-founder, Grimm Bros

Hey, everyone! It’s finally time! After three long years of nonstop development by five indie developers, Dragon Fin Soup is finally ready to be served! For those of you who haven’t heard of Dragon Fin Soup, you can check out our previous PS Blog posts here and here, or just let us give you a refresher :)

Dragon Fin Soup

Dragon Fin Soup is a tactical-action RPG with roguelike elements set in a twisted tongue-in-cheek fairytale world. Inspired by those ingredients, the game features a 2D top-down camera and fluid turn-based movement that allows you to set the pace.

Dragon Fin Soup seamlessly blends genres to create a fresh experience: half story-driven tactical RPG and half high-stakes roguelike, with a pinch of crass humor and a heaping helping of murder & madness set in a procedurally generated fantasy world.

Dragon Fin Soup

Dragon Fin SoupDragon Fin Soup

Meet Red Robin, a charming, raging alcoholic bounty hunter who would rather get into a bar fight than deliver baked goods. Players must take up Robin’s blades and set out across Asura — a lushly colorful, fantasy world that sits on the back of an enormous space turtle — on a journey to discover the secrets of her bloody past.

Warning: This game is not for the casual player and can be highly addictive! We really went overboard with Dragon Fin Soup and threw in everything we found fun:

  • Superfluid turn-based tactical combat
  • Raging alcoholic bounty hunter heroine
  • Traces of dark majesty from the original Grimm tales
  • New procedurally-generated world each time you play
  • Mercenaries for hire and awesome pets to collect
  • Over 60+ hours of gameplay in Story, Survival, and Labyrinth modes
  • Gorgeous 2D world, all created by award winning artist Randis Albion

Dragon Fin Soup is the first of what we hope to be many RPGs we create and share with you. With your patronage and support we will continue to expand the world of Dragon Fin Soup and listen to your feedback.

To show our everlasting appreciation, enjoy these HD wallpapers painted by Randis Albion!

We are very excited to finally be launching our baby and hope you enjoy Dragon Fin Soup as much as we enjoyed making it.

If you’re on the fence as to whether Dragon Fin Soup is right for you, have no fear! Here is a candid in-depth gameplay showcase from PAX Rising 2015.

    Anyone complaining about this needs to have their consoles taken away from them. Looks pretty sweet. PS+ is definitely the best deal in gaming history. I generally care about the discounts more than anything else though. Probably would have outright bought this game. :).

I have a few questions I hope you don’t mind answering! :)

1) Over 60+ hours of gameplay in Story, Survival, and Labyrinth modes – Does this mean 180+ hours or 60+ combined hours between the three?

2) Any possible expansions in the future if it does well enough?

3) Platinum trophy?

Looks almost alot like Rainbow Moon and I loved that game so this game will be alot of fun. :D

    This is a rough estimate combines. Since this is RPG with RL elements it much depends on the play-style as well.

    DFS is turn-based, that is true but it does not play the same way as FF tactics or similar titles, it feels more like a real time but it tracks all turns takes so the game-play is fluid :)

Are you kidding me? Free on Ps Plus next month on Ps4, PS3, and Ps Vita. This could have been easily a discount game for around 20 to 25 dollars, maybe retail release. This is awesome! This feels like a full game. Is there Cross-Save and PsTV support?

    Thank you! We decided to go with PS+ because this is a great opportunity to get the word out and people who might not normally buy RL or RPG might get to try it as well. Also even tho the game is for free on PS+, PS+ is not a free service. :D

    How did you come to the decision of this game being free? Seriously! (super happy).


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 10:30 am said:

    I know I know. Had it since Jan, planning to renew. But still, this is awesome. I have a Vita and Ps4, and even the Ps TV, so I hope this is cross-save and PsTV compatible, or you guys plan to feature them in upcoming patches. Fun question, what will everyone else have to pay to play the game? I think 25 dollars is good.


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 10:41 am said:

    I know it is cross buy. But I would love it even more if it is cross-save and PSTV compatible on Vita as well as I have the PsTV in addition to the Vita and Ps4. That would complete this for me, and if not, please add it in future patches, you will make this guy really happy.

    I am just so pumped this month.


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 10:55 am said:

    And I also hope for DLC and new modes to be added as well. Man this just made my month. If this game got a physical release I be all over it.


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 11:06 am said:

    And also if you want to avoid many rage people, make sure the tutorial in the game is good. Just asking lol. I know its not for casual gamers, but we all have to learn to play the game, don’t we.


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 11:27 am said:

    Oh yeah, so I better start reading on it. Fun question, what AAA Publisher would release this game physically for you if you had to choose? I can see Atlus for sure.

    I can tell from your website that it is $17.99 for PC or something. Same here? I am still guessing around 20 to 25 dollar range. Cross-Buy is awesome, and I am glad you guys will care to support the game post launch, and I really do hope that PSTV support and Cross-Save comes.

    BTW, did you heard about the PSTV?


     

    + terminatorx0606 on October 30th, 2015 at 11:51 am said:

    Still can’t believe it! We would have very much liked to share all the news with you guys earlier but we could not reveal any info before Sony made the official announcement.
    We decided to go with PS+ because we believe that it help getting the word out and reach people who would not usually go for RPG and RL type of games.
    Just to avoid misunderstandings, the game will be for free only on PS+ for a period of time and even tho it is free, PS+ is not a free service, so people do actually pay for those games.
    No worries guys, this is not a micro-transactions infested free to play app :D

    The PS= is a great opportunity to get the word out and reach people who might not have noticed the game otherwise or are not usually buying RPG or RL. This is however bot a free-to-play app with micro-transactions. After the PS+ period it will go on sale.

This game looks really neat and look forward to playing it. But when I see

“We really went overboard with Dragon Fin Soup and threw in everything we found fun:
Raging alcoholic bounty hunter heroine”

As someone who has had close friends and family deal with alcoholism (to the point of being hospitalized) I can tell you that there is absolutely nothing fun about it.

    There is indeed nothing fun about alcoholism and we do not empower drinking. Robin has issues, she suffered a horrible past and has her anxieties and nightmares, her drinking habit is a flaw, she is by all means not a flawless character.

    We are very sorry for not have been able to share the news with you guys earlier but we could not make any announcements before the official Sony press release.
    We are very grateful for all the support we received from our backers and by all means this was not a wasted effort, it helped us developing this game!
    To avoid misunderstandings, this is not a free to play title with some weird micro-transactions, the PS+ service is not free, the members pay their fees and after the short PS Plus period the game will go on sale just as planned.
    The reason we decided to go with PS Plus is because we believe it will help us getting the word out and reach more people who would not normally even consider playing a RL RPG.
    The exposure will help as as we are a new studio and not yet well known as this is our first title. The exposure will be good for this game as it will give us more opportunities and means to support it in the future.
    Again, thank you very much for supporting us and we sincerely hope you can understand the reasons and don;t feel disappointed.

    + Tinye310 on October 30th, 2015 at 11:45 am said:

    I feel you man but it’s their decision and although as a fellow backer I kind of feel some backlash with it, at the very least I wish we we’re told ahead of time with a little dev update, specifically stating what they’ve already stated in some of the comment responses here. (More spread and cover for a game that might not be otherwise)

    I’m not sure how much you backed for but I got the game and the OST for cheaper than I would have otherwise so in essence I’m still getting something for it. Like they’ve said PS Plus is a paid service. We backed it so they could have the opportunity to make THEIR game and then do what they think is best for their game.

    I do feel you though but going to have to switch your mindset, kickstarter is like a mini-investment into/for a company and we get some perks with that that no one else has gotten here who just get it with PS Plus.

    I do think a little announcement to the backers prior to this announcement would have been nice. Cheers


     

    + Tinye310 on October 30th, 2015 at 11:46 am said:

    Well the dev beat me to the response. I understand that you couldn’t say anything to the backers, that makes sense. good luck


     

    + Harerazer on October 30th, 2015 at 1:54 pm said:

    Sorry but I’m with Bigsilvs. I backed this game because I believed it to be something different from the stuff that we’re constantly fed and felt they should be supported in their efforts. Now I see everyone with PS+ is going to get the game even if they care nothing for it. a 50% discount would have been acceptable but free? This will also be my first and last Kickstarter project.

    I don’t get it. Isn’t the whole KS thing a way for people to help developers by FUNDING their projects? =\

    When did it turn into a “I’ll give you money…but ONLY if you give me X” kind of deal? o_O

    I think the problem is not a “wrong” business decision by Grimm Bros…but a lack of COMMON SENSE on your part.

    If you donated 20 bucks to a charity you have NO RIGHT to demand ANYTHING from it. That’s why it’s called DONATION (and yes, I know we’re not talking about a donation per se here…but to my knowledge that’s basically the idea behind KS).

    As someone who didn’t even know about this, your donation helped this game get made. Your donation is why I’m able to get this for PS+, or even play it to begin with. And for that, your donation is much appreciated by people like me.

    As someone who donated to the Amplitude kickstarter, I won’t mind if they decide to put it on PS+. If it helps them create more Amplitude-like games, I’ll be a happy camper.

I can’t help but feel somewhat miffed by Dragon Fin Soup being free on PS+, as I was a kickstarter backer with plans of getting the PS4 version. I’m glad to have helped the game out to some degree, but this move undermines the whole rewards part of kickstarting. At least I’ll actually own it irrespective of my PS+ subscription I guess.

    We appreciate the support of our backers a lot, this helped us developing the title. being on PS Plus it means not that this game is a free to play app with micro-transactions or anything like that, also the PS+ service is not free.
    The reason we decided to go with PS plus is to get the word out, we believe the game will benefit from it as it will reach players who might not buy this sort of game. As a small indie with a first title on the market we can use all exposure we can get.
    After the PS+ period the game goes on sale just as planned.

Great news! I’m so glad you guys decided to release with PS+, otherwise, I wouldn’t have had a chance to play it until sometime next year. It’s that holiday rush time. I’m also glad to hear that there will be post launch support! I can’t wait to dive into this beautiful world and discover it’s dark and dirty secrets. I LOVE dark fairy tales (sure I loved the Disney ones growing up, but now I like a more “Grimm” outlook on my favorite old stories).

Last but CERTAINLY NOT least… THANK YOU a MILLION for continuing to support the Vita. I love my handheld and this is the PERFECT type of game to play on it. Half the other indies I’d been following have dropped Vita support since Sony did so themselves. I will most certainly axe something off my Vita memory card for your game! Hmm, that in mind I hope it isn’t a massive download :/ those Vita memory cards are atrocious! Either way, day one download!

Also there are other platforms and the game will be ported to even more.

I backed this project on kickstarter and am happy to see it come to fruition.

I am a bit upset that the tiers where people on kickstarter paid in advance for a copy of the game to help it’s development get the same rewards as those who pay a monthly fee to go online on their PS4. (yes PS+ is a paid service but it’s more or less a mandatory one since you cannot play online without it.)

I probably wouldn’t back another project by this team but I hope the game is a lot of fun.

    We are very grateful for your support and we hear you. We truly are sorry for not being able to share this news earlier with our backers, we had to wait until the official announcements before we could release any related info or release dates.
    We appreciate all the support from our backers and as we clearly stated in out KS campaign, the KS was by no means meant as pre-sales. All money went into development and without the help we would not be here today so no penny was wasted.
    The reason we went with PS + is because we believe that this will be good for this game as it will gain more exposure and reach gamer who normally would not buy this sort of genre. PS+ members will get the game but they will not receive any of the rewards reserved for our backers that come with all the tiers.

    DFS is not a mainstream title and as a new studio we really need to get the word out there. This is a choice between revenue and exposure and in the long run we rally want to be able to keep supporting this title.
    After the PS+ period the game will be on sales as planned.
    We hope you can understand our reasons and not be upset with us.
    Again, thank you for supporting us! We mean it.

    I thought the same thing with Stealth Inc, though not as a Kickstarter.
    But the company also sells the games on sale quite regularly, if they aren’t giving it away free.
    Just picked up Mark of the Ninja on Steam for less than $3 bucks.

    I was mad at first, but realized that it is the kind of business, that has shown more care about players playing than holding out with a firm price tag.
    And one worth supporting.

    Not sure if this company is any different, but something to keep in mind and feel good about.
    There maybe a few kids out there happy you did.

    You are talking about Curve Studios. Their games tend to be on sale a lot and eventually end up on ps+. However may I ask? How is that “Just picked up Mark of the Ninja on Steam for less than $3 bucks.” comment relevant? It’s like you threw it in there randomly :/

Is the levels in story mode procedurally-generated? What´s the roguelike aspect in this game? I´m not much a fan of roguelike games. I hope that is not you dying and having to start from the beginning.

    The story mode has two different options, playing the game in normal mode you can save and when you die you can continue from last save just as in any other RPG. Permanent death is only in the hardcore mode.

And an extra-big THANK-YOU for supporting the PS3 and PS VITA, so many games are ignorantly dropping off those systems and going PS4-only, they are missing out on many players who can’t afford a new PS4.

As an old-school gamer who grew up with Atari, NES and Final Fantasy games (from the very first one), I’m looking forward to this.
Nice to see something new and different. Sorry I missed the Kickstarter, I would have gladly backed it.
Since I don’t have much time to waste these days, how much grinding or repetition is there? Can we progress through the game naturally without having to stop and grind to level up? What’s the average time range for completing just the story mode?
And since I’ll be playing this on my Vita, any idea what the download file size will be? I need to clear some space on the memory card.
Thanks and cheers on the game release!

    + Orpheus_Aeons on October 30th, 2015 at 8:19 pm said:

    And I urge anyone SERIOUS about this game to THINK before going all crazy with the “free? downloading right now!” type of mindset: this is a LOOOONG game, and no matter what Mr. Monif says…it WILL be a grind-fest for sure (otherwise it will be a crappy TRPG).

    So don’t fall for the Sony trap: if you’re REALLY interested in this game…BUY IT (now…or wait till December for a Sale). If you go the “free” route YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BUY IT. As in never (and yeah, I know there is a way to do it…but is really a hassle for most people).
    So the minute you drop PS+ you will LOSE IT. And again: this is not Rocket League, a 100% casual game that you can say “meh, I can’t play it again? whatever”. If you’re just in the middle of it…and you can’t play anymore after putting 40+ hours of your life into it…you will kick yourself in the nuts. =P

    So unless you’re a lil’ kid, able to play 12 hours a day…or a “I’ll check this one out, but I’ll probably never play it for real” kind of player… BUY IT.

    Besides…this is a new development studio…they NEED people to BUY their games to be able to keep doing them. ;)


     

    + Realsvi on October 31st, 2015 at 12:40 am said:

    Three points.

    One: with everything they’ve said about this game, it’s easily worth 50$, you’d not regret subscribing on top of the other benefits it comes with.

    Second: any game you have through ps plps4 for free does not instantly erase off your hdd and all its save data. You’re just locked out until you resub with all its data intact along with the save data. So you needn’t worry about that.

    Third: as someone whose been a ps plus subscriber 3 weeks after it was released for the ps3, I didn’t have any reason to not resubscribe in all those years and neither would you I suspect.

    Bonus point: please explain this trap you mentioned at the top of your post.


     

    + Orpheus_Aeons on October 31st, 2015 at 3:48 pm said:

    @Realsvi :

    1) PS+ sucks atm…so $50 is too much for a crappy service. And unless you’re a PS4 owner there’s almost ZERO incentives to subscribe. There’s no “other benefits it comes with”.

    2) I never said the game was going to magically disappear from anyone’s HDD. What I said was that once you download a PS+ game you won’t be able to buy it in the future (as in “I wanna have this game forever”).
    So the only way to keep playing it would be to pay Sony for another sub…or go through a lot of needless hassle. And again: PS+ SUCKS.


     

    + Orpheus_Aeons on October 31st, 2015 at 3:49 pm said:

    @Realsvi (cont.) :

    3) I was a happy subscriber for almost 4 YEARS (since August 24, 2010…less than 2 months after launch)…and I finally let my sub die on May 2014 because of how AWFUL the service became after the whole mandatory stuff (thanks to the PS4).
    I did not regretted my decision ONE DAY. =)
    PS+ was bad back then…it’s almost PURE GARBAGE now. Again: only PS4 owners keep subscribing to it because…they have no choice.
    So you can have all the reasons you want for subscribing year after year. I can’t find ONE. :-|

    Bonus: seeing how you feel completely different than me about Sony and/or PS+ I honestly don’t think there’s any reason for me to try to explain the “trap” thing. It will only unleash a blind argument of “Sony is great” Vs. “Sony sucks”. Something completely irrelevant to this post and my original comment.

    Good day to you & Good luck. ;)

    @Orpheus_Aeons
    ps+ is an amazing service. Yes I’ll agree that it would have been awesome if they gave out games like fallout 4 and mgsV every month or have $1 sales for + members every week but let’s be realistic here shall we? $50 a year means about $4 per month. for $4 per month you are getting six games costing way, way more than that. Also instead of looking at the games and hating them you could at least try them out can’t you? But no, most people would go like “indies! f**k ps+! I’m shifting to xbox/nintendo/steam” and other such nonsense. Lastly I find it silly that people keep begging for AAA game and they go like “any AAA games will do” It’s as if they think indies aren’t games at all or the fact that if a game doesn’t have millions of dollars of budget then it shouldn’t be categorized as such.

    Seeing how you feel completely different than me about Sony and/or PS+ I honestly don’t think there’s any reason for me to try to explain the benefits. It will only unleash blind statements the likes of “Sony sucks” or “ps+(or ps- as you put it) sucks”.
