Atlus has acquired North American publishing rights for Dragon's Crown, a cooperative action RPG for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Regardless of Atlus' involvement with the game, Dragon's Crown is still being developed by Vanillaware.
"We are exceedingly proud to become a part of producing and publishing Dragon's Crown," stated Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Index Digital Media, Inc. "Vanillaware is a developer beloved for their tremendous visual talent and extraordinary attention to detail. Our previous collaboration with them, Odin Sphere, went on to sell over 350,000 units worldwide, entering the prestigious PlayStation Greatest Hits library. While much work remains, we believe this collaboration will be well worth the wait."
Dragon's Crown is scheduled to release for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems in North America in 2013.
The game was originally to be published by UTV Ignition Entertainment.
