Knock the cobwebs off your Fighters, Elves, Wizards, and the rest, because we’re adding in a lot of new content with The Fifth Dragon’s Crown Patch available now.
The Tower of Mirages is randomly generated and it has tens of thousands of levels. TENS. OF. THOUSANDS.
It’s a packed week on the PlayStation Store, with pre-orders of NHL 14, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. There’s also this week’s PSN Play title ibb & obb, the beautiful Dragon’s Crown on both PSN & PS Vita, and Tales of Xillia. There’s still one more week to pre-order Ducktales, so jump to it.
Dragon’s Crown (PS3 and PS Vita) takes the throne on today’s show! We begin with some hands-on impressions before diving into an in-depth interview with John Hardin of Atlus. Then plunge into the darkness with Batman: Arkham Origin‘s new multiplayer mode Invisible Predator Online, including a new interview with Creative Director Alastair Cornish from Splash Damage.
The kingdom is boiling in war all around you, and brigands threaten the crown just as much as the encroaching orc forces. But you, noble adventurer, have loot to earn and treasure to find. You have swords to wield and spells to sling! Welcome to Dragon’s Crown, from the talented developers at Vanillaware.
Dragon’s Crown has had a long development process – especially for those of you who remember E3 2011 when Ignition first mentioned the game. But now ATLUS and Odin Sphere developer Vanillaware are putting a stake in the ground for August 6th, 2013. If you’re not familiar with Dragon’s Crown, it’s a 2D multiplayer action beat-em-up exclusive to the PS3 and PS Vita that features four-person co-op play, six character classes, skills that can be leveled up, and all the dungeon-exploring, orc-slapping, treasure-seeking action you can shake a magical staff at.
Denizens of the Blog of PlayStation,
You know how you’re really excited for something and then something happens and you get even more excited? Like that time you found out they were making a movie for The Hobbit and you were excited…but kinda bummed that Peter Jackson wouldn’t be directing it. But guess what happened: Peter Jackson announced that he *would* in fact direct it, and you got a heck of a lot more excited. Right?
