    With everything you loved about the base game intact, and all presented in glorious 4K, both fans of the original and newcomers to the game can enjoy the adventure together with cross-play to both older systems. I hope that other companies take notice of allowing players across old and new releases of games to play together, and being able to upload your save from the original to the re-release, because it was just awesome to be able to enjoy it with friends and keep my character and all my badass equipment from the original game.

    Dragon's Crown Pro is still the best 2D beat 'em up that you can play on PlayStation 4.

    Repetitive but never monotonous thanks to the range of heroes, Dragon's Crown PRO is an arcade of the old guard made with a great audiovisual style. Nothing new for its old players, but continues to be a gem in the ARPG scene.

    The pricing will seem somewhat steep if you've already poured countless hours into the original Dragon's Crown, but that doesn't take anything away from what is still one of the best, most memorable beat-'em-ups on the market. Topped off with some incredibly addictive RPG elements, it's difficult not to fall in love with Vanillaware's stellar sidescroller all over again.

    Dragon’s Crown Pro is an excellent dungeon-crawling beat ’em up adventure.

    Some might consider it repetitive, vulgar and may even be left wondering what all the fuss was about. But, for those of you who ever fell in love with arcade brawlers, fantasy storytelling, and tabletop RPGs, then Dragon's Crown Pro will shine oh-so-brightly as the unique and sublime treasure it is.

    This game would still be hard to fall in love with if it didn't absolutely assault the laws of human physics.

    Still a brilliant Coop-Game, i highly recommend it,at least for fans of the genre, and everyone who misses more Coop-Games. Only downsideStill a brilliant Coop-Game, i highly recommend it,at least for fans of the genre, and everyone who misses more Coop-Games. Only downside would be that there are not that many maps. You basically have to run trough a lot of them too often. The gameplay is great, so it isnt that much of a problem, but there could have been more. These few are beautiful thou, everything handdrawn.
    Addicting Gameplay with great Coop-Support. 10/10

    For those who miss old school couch beat em up games, this is for sure your choice.
    Gorgeous designs for characters, great music, bad ass
    For those who miss old school couch beat em up games, this is for sure your choice.
    Gorgeous designs for characters, great music, bad ass bosses and simple gameplay. Story is not big deal, but it is not important in a 2d beat em up game. You just need cool maps and to kill a boss at the end of it.
    I must say, however, playing the game locally with friends could be a bit tedious, since you have to share the screen for learning skills, buying, repairing, switching ítems and changing builds. This is not a big issue tho.
    This game is a jewel, specially phisical day one edition. I'm happy with my purchase.

    I've played this game for almost 40 hours and i can say it gets better and better the more you play it. I can easily say this game is no likeI've played this game for almost 40 hours and i can say it gets better and better the more you play it. I can easily say this game is no like the other. Anyone that appreciates nice fluid combat, good character progression and absolutly beatiful art style should try this game out. All of 6 characters are different from each other and this makes the game worth for its price easily. Not to mention the replay value it has. If you are intrested in beat'm up Rpg genre even just a little, you should definetly get this game and try. Expand

    Dragons Crown Pro
    Worth going back for
    Dragons Crown Pro is a 2D action RPG that supports up to 4 player co op and a remaster of 2013s Dragon Crown where you play as the class of your choice, some characters more difficult to master than others, and you set off on an 8 hour journey to obtain the dragons crown, a crown being used to control a dragon…
    and im happy to say the game is more than its giant boobs
    Im a very aggressive player in most anything I play as, so I played as the brute tank knight character, all about close ranged combat and defense…
    theres a town area which is a bit of a hub, here you can mess with your part, sell unused items, resurrect new party members, accept quests, and dump skills into your characters skill deck…
    the game at first can seem a bit overwhelming, but that’s just because Japanese games tend to over complicate tutorials.. its actually super simple and straight forward…
    you enter an area, and you kill all of the things in your way…
    you have a thief friend with you that you use your curser using your analog stick to unlock chests and doors.. chests which contain gold and loot, and as you progress them game you’ll run into piles of bones.. these bones can be collected and brought back to town to resurrect a character and add them to your party… a party that can hold up to 4 players, though online isn’t available until deep in the game, so you’re going to be doing this with computer controlled teammates, and at the end of every level there is a boss for you to defeat, then you turn in your progress rinse and repeat…
    and at the end you’re rewarded your xp, and you can either take your spoils and get them appraised for some cash revealing their stats or sell them on the spot
    cash I found to be plentiful in this game, you’ll mostly be using it just for resurrections and appraising, with the occasional repairing items..
    the gameplay itself I found to be pretty easy, no level or boss in the entire game gave me any trouble, but then again I was using a very beginner friendly character…
    your teammates though will die usually during boss battles, and you can use coins to revive them if they lose all of their lives to keep them in the fight… these moments though are where I find my biggest issue with this game.. the curser for whatever reason during these moments of trying to revive a fallen part member just doesn’t want to be responsive… so you stop attacking mid boss fight, trying to get the curser over the character you you can press the touch pad to bring them back..
    you can imagine how many accidental deaths youll take because of this.. but again I didn’t find the game to be all that difficult… though there is a post game challenge after credits roll where the difficulty ramps up to hard and you have to hunt down even stronger bosses
    another issue I had with this game was just keeping track with of my character.. there’s so much going on on screen, I found myself really just button mashing until all of the things were dead, having no idea where I was…
    All in all though Dragons Crown is a really great and addictive action rpg…
    finding hidden chests and juggling your loot is satisfying.. the art style and character design is great, the deliver of this game and its story is so charming as its told with storybook like narration, as the narrator will voice different characters..
    It has slight flaws, but is definitely worth checking out for the rpg fans out there…
    I give Dragons Crown Pro
    an 8/10

    Another example of devs slapping a new paint of coat on an old game and then selling it for full price. Everywhere you turn you see rereleasesAnother example of devs slapping a new paint of coat on an old game and then selling it for full price. Everywhere you turn you see rereleases of old games but with nothing new or substantial added. Just a cash grab, meant to get people excited about a game thats already been out 3 years so they can sell it for $60, and it works. Expand
