See also

Despite some "bad publicity" early on and a few minor road bumps, 2013 has been kind to "Dragon's Crown" in terms of both critical acclaim and sales. This week (December 30) "Dragon's Crown" takes both the number one and number two spots on the Japanese PlayStation store and cements itself as one of the best selling PS Vita games of all time. Nice going, Vanillaware. You've earned it.

Also, as you may have heard earlier in the week "Dragon's Crown" got a huge content update for both Eastern and Western audiences. Here's what you have to look forward to if you haven't already downloaded the free patch:

  • New Ultimate Difficulty unlocked upon clearing level 9 of the Chaos Labyrinth
  • New area, the Sky Tower of Dreams (randomly generated new locations and randomly generated enemies)
  • Level cap increased from 99 to a whopping 255
  • Multiple content tweaks including character buffs, nerfs, NPC tweaks, new item shortcuts, and more

The netcode seems to have been reworked as well. Still on the fence? Take it from someone whose poured almost 70 hours into the game: If you hadn't already found reason to play through "Dragon's Crown" before, now's a better time than ever to dive right in. Vanillaware needs to support so that we might see more ambitious titles such as "Dragon's Crown" and "Muramasa" in the future.
