Vanillaware’s action-RPG brawler Dragon’s Crown will gain PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita cross-play functionality through an upcoming update, publish Atlus announced.
According to Atlus,t he only reason cross-play wasn’t included in Dragon’s Crown from the start was because the team at Vanillaware “was focused on delivering the best game possible, so we couldn’t include it at launch.” The update arrived in Japan earlier this week, and is expected to release in North America “very soon.”
For those of you unfamiliar with Dragon’s Crown, it is in many ways the spiritual successor to the side-scroller beat ’em up/brawler/RPG Dungeons & Dragons games Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, which Capcom unleashed in arcades back in the mid 90s. Both games were released as a compilation as Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara for PSN, XBLA, Wii U, and Windows PC earlier this year.
