Hot on the heels of the Sorceress and Fighter, Atlus USA has once more given Western audiences a sneak peek at two more characters from Vanillaware’s 2D beat’em up Dragon’s Crown. The two characters, the Elf and the Dwarf, are shown in vivid detail as fans are shown how they attack, dodge, and unleash special abilities in all the glory Dragon’s Crown is going to offer. Unlike the Japanese movies though, there are no voice-overs detailing the character’s abilities, instead, Western Fans will have to do with a few side-scrolling descriptions, detailing the contribution these battlefield specialists will offer to the adventure group.
For those who want more, here are the English videos and Atlus USA’s character description for your own pleasure.
THE DWARF: Uses his brawn to fling enemies across the battlefield or his dual weapons to demolish foes where they stand. The Dwarf’s small stature is made up with acrobatic movement, as he catapults himself around the battlefield to close gaps or escape danger.
THE ELF: Combines the power of nature with the deadly sniping capabilities of a ranger. She can charge her bow with elemental power to rain destruction on enemies, but players need to be mindful of the number of arrows in her quiver. When enemies get up close and personal, she uses lightning-quick kicks and slides to neutralize the danger and can backflip to safety.
Dragon’s Crown will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems for $49.99 and $39.99 respectively and will be available for pre-orders now from major retailers. For more information, movies, and to check which retailers will be carrying the game, here is the Official Dragon’s Crown Website. Dragon’s Crown will be making its way to North America on August 6th, but a European release has yet to be announced.
