Ignition Comments On Atlus Picking Up Dragon’s Crown

Posted on April 20, 2012 AT 02:06pm

THE BUZZ: Last night, we brought you word that Atlus had picked up publishing rights for Vanillaware’s upcoming side-scrolling action RPG Dragon’s Crown from UTV Ignition. Today, Ignition released a statement on that transfer of publishing rights.

EGM’s TAKE: Here’s the statement in full as in came from UTV Ignition:

UTV Ignition Games today announced that Dragon’s Crown will be published by Atlus. Developed by Vanillaware, the 2D action RPG will be available in multiple formats including PlayStation Vita.

UTV Ignition has now exited from all internal development of Dragon’s Crown, with Atlus acquiring the publishing rights. “While we are saddened to no longer be associated with the Dragon’s Crown project, we are very confident that the title is in excellent hands with Atlus,” stated Lokesh Dhar, senior vice president of UTV Ignition Entertainment. “Since the initial announcement, information on timing and features in the game have changed and other details regarding design and functionality are yet to be determined. We are confident that Atlus and Vanillaware will deliver the finest game possible.”

In Dragon’s Crown players take the role of one of six adventurers who must roam labyrinths in search of treasure and the legendary “Dragon’s Crown.” With 2D multiplayer action, up to four players can connect around the world to play through the game together.
