    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.

    The lack of new content in Dragon’s Crown Pro may be disappointing, but when a game plays — and looks — as good as this, it’s hard to hold such complaints against it. Returning players, welcome back; new players, enjoy your stay.

    This updated 4K version of the 2013 release is great fun. The handcrafted graphics will blow your mind and the game does a great job of fusing together different genres. Online or local 4-player multiplayer is an absolute treat and hat's off to Vanillaware for enabling cross generational cross play features. The story is a bit stale and the online component is only made available after a couple of hours of single player campaign, which is a weird decision. This game is highly recommended provided you don't have either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita version.

    Its enjoyment relies so much on its visual flair but at the same time, the game is perfect for those people who just love nothing more than a good grind. Either way, Dragon's Crown Pro is a sure-fire buy for anyone in a mood for old-fashioned fantasy.

    Dragon's Crown Pro is the same great, hack 'n' slash played years ago. 4K resolution, new soundtrack and great gameplay take the game to a higher level.

    As beautiful as the storybook world looks in 4K, it simply isn’t enough to justify a second purchase for those who’ve already played through it on the PS3 and Vita. But if you fall into the camp of people who are intrigued by this charming world, or if you just want more Dragon’s Crown in your life, there’s no better way to play this game than on the PS4.

    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

The hand drawn graphics are gorgeous in 4k, and the entire game feels lovingly crafted. The story is relatively short, however the post game loot grind is the best experience the game has to offer. If you miss the 2d beat-em-up RPG brawlers of days past, this is a must buy! Expand

    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.

Jumped to another game and a little later on I was already on the PS4, so I kind of gave it up.

    This is a pretty solid beat-em-up/RPG. It's gorgeous to look at and a blast to play (especially on co-op). The cast of characters are varied and play differently too, which is good since it gives an incentive to play it again. It can be tough and very challenging, but the grind it's actually fun, so eventually you overcome that stage/boss which, at first, seemed too hard.

    Awesome, awesome game. A little pricey, though... I think 50 bucks is a bit high for a remaster. In my opinion, 29 dollars would be ideal. But the PS4 needs this kind of game and ATLUS does give a super polished product. It's worth the investment; there are hours and hours of fun to invest here.

    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

However for a $50 price tag, I would have expected the now 3+ year old title would have gotten at least ONE new map or character to freshen it up for returning players. Sadly, there is little to nothing in the way of game-play additions, making this a better candidate for "wait for sale" material. Unless you have not played it prior to this release, in which case its certainly worth every penny. 7/10 Expand
