Vanillaware Reveals 20th Anniversary Artwork Featuring Dragon’s Crown Cast

Vanillaware has shared new celebratory anniversary artwork for their 20th anniversary, with this piece highlighting the Dragon’s Crown cast by the manga adaptation’s artist @_zunta.

For those unaware, this is an action JRPG that was initially released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita before seeing an enhanced PlayStation 4 version called Dragon’s Crown Pro. This was actually more of a beat ’em up with six selectable character classes, all boasting unique traits. It’s a pretty addictive and enjoyable game that managed to sell over one million units.

In case you missed it, the developer announced a 20th-anniversary event with new artwork of several heroines from the games.

GrimGrimoire OnceMore will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on April 4, 2023.

Originally released on PS2, GrimGrimoire OnceMore tells the story of Lillet Blan, a young girl who recently joined the Silver Star Tower academy and wishes to become a great magician. As she learns the art of summoning familiars, she will have to do her best to deal with the perils hidden within the tower.

A new gameplay mechanic, Grand Magic, has been implemented. This allows access to exceptional skills, such as Mana Burst, which deals fire damage across a wide radius, and Resurrection, restoring the health of familiars. In addition, a new skill tree has also been added, where players can spend coins earned from completing optional missions to obtain upgrades, including familiar strengthening, magic buffs, and more.

Regarding convenience, fast-forward mode does the self-explanatory to make battle actions pass by more swiftly. Further, the newly added Hard difficulty will challenge those who want to push their strategic know-how to their limits. Other new features comprise the aspect ratio being upgraded from 4:3 to 16:9 and voice lines being added to combat.
