Atlus and Vanillaware’s stylish action/RPG Dragon’s Crown is getting a fresh art book from Udon. If you’re a fan, then you’re going to want to see this.
Dragon’s Crown was one of the more popular action/RPG/hack ‘n’ slashes to make its way to consoles in recent years. Actually, it might be possible to even consider it a “classic” at this point, since it originally launched in 2013. The bottom line though, is that it’s an excellent title.
Also worth pointing out, is that Dragon’s Crown is still a unique looking video game, even today. That’s partly thanks to Vanillaware’s super-exaggerated style of art. Dragon’s Crown goes well beyond traditionally overblown, hugely-muscled heroes, and takes things to a whole new level. And that style has now spawned a full blown art book from publisher Udon.
Coming to retail in the form of one giant volume, Dragon’s Crown: Official Artworks will include a lot more than just imagery too.
Included will be:
- Character & enemy artworks
- Story cutscenes
- Location illustrations
- Tribute pieces from some of Japan’s top video game concept artists
With all that content, you can imagine this is set to be one chunky volume. And yes, it definitely is, clocking in at 200 pages total with a price tag of $49.99 USD. Watch for it on shelves on September 24th.
