It's unfortunate that other territories have to wait, but at least gamers in those regions can now circle an exact date on their calendars.
As revealed in the latest NIS America newsletter, the critically acclaimed Dragon's Crown will come to Europe, Australia and other PAL regions on October 11. It was also confirmed that an art book pre-order bonus would be available from various retailers.
The action/RPG that initially looks like a straightforward brawler is definitely a work of art. It has already released for the PS3 and Vita in North America and Japan and it managed to ship over 300,000 copies in its first week. We're glad it's doing well because we were afraid it'd be too niche to succeed. Thankfully, with the help of critical praise and great word-of-mouth, Dragon's Crown appears to be on the way to financial goodness. And such a well-designed, engaging, and beautiful game deserves it. Vanillaware really went above and beyond.
If you're in a PAL territory, you've gotta give it a try in October. We promise you won't be disappointed!
