What can be said about Dragon’s Crown Pro for PlayStation 4 in it’s remastered version that wasn’t said in its original release in 2013? In this review, that appears courtesy of Vanillaware/Atlus PR that gave ADG a copy of the game, we’ll explore those things and more in this review.


Let’s start by taking a look at the general info that Vanillaware and Atlus provided me.

General Info

  • Dragon’s Crown Pro is a remaster of Dragon’s Crown, which was originally released for the PS3 and PlayStation Vita in 2013. Dragon’s Crown Pro is developed by Vanillaware, the masters of storybook-style graphics and storytelling through such games as Odin Sphere, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, and the upcoming 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

  • Take control of one of six unique character classes, including a fierce Amazon, a stout Dwarf, an agile Elf, a steadfast Warrior, a destructive Wizard, or a beguiling Sorceress and engage in chaotic side-scrolling beat ‘em up action with up to 3 friends in local or online co-op! Characters can be developed and customized with a wide range of skills and equipment to take on increasingly-difficult dungeons.

  • With art and game direction by George Kamitani, 

    and music by Hitoshi Sakimoto, players will be immediately immersed in the beautifully-realized storybook world of Dragon’s Crown Pro.

  • A recent patch for Dragon’s Crown on PS3 and PS Vita allows players to engage in cross-platform multiplayer and save data with Dragon’s Crown Pro on the PS4.


Looking at this alone, you can see that you can expect the same unique artistic co-op experience as the first. The only differences are now you can cross-platform play and have the ability to play in 4K on new 4K consoles and monitors. During my time with the game, I did notice an increase in load times in some areas but some areas without any change. Which is very odd.


It’s no doubt that Dragon’s Crown Pro is a good game. The question here is does the remaster warrant its price and who should purchase this game? The 49.99 price tag is quite heavy to me unless you are purchasing the Battle Hardened Launch edition and I’ll only recommend that to new adoptees or high marked fans. In fact, you should only be buying Dragon’s Crown Pro if you want the game back in your library, never experienced it, or finished it. Did I mention the game shares the same trophies as well across all formats on PSN?! The visuals aren’t really that much better. It still is a good game that coop and action RPG fans should experience.
