It was no surprise when NIS America announced that they would be helping Atlus publish Dragon’s Crown for the PAL region, since they have been doing joint publishing for quite a few titles recently. It had been announced for a Q3 release in Europe, which wouldn’t be too far off from the NTSC region’s release. Thankfully, now we have a proper release date (http://www NULL.nisamerica NULL.com/index NULL.php?nav=n&article=pbomb%2FPrinnyBomb_Vol373 NULL.html): October 11th of this year.
Not only that, but NISA also announced that they would be offering a pre-order incentive. It will be the same art book that was offered in North America and Japan. Whether it’s hardcover or softcover remains to be seen, but it most likely will have the same amount of pages and provide the same content. It will be distributed at unspecified select retailers only. Hopefully, they will give more information about this at a later time.
Dragon’s Crown is a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita exclusive title that was released last month in Japan and is doing extremely well there. Its North American release was a week ago. If you live in the PAL region and are interested in the title, but don’t know if it’s for you, check out our review on the game.
