Atlus (a brand of Index Digital Media, Inc.) has announced that it has acquired North American publishing rights for Dragon’s Crown, a cooperative action RPG for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Originally to be published by UTV Ignition Entertainment, the game will now be produced, published and distributed by Atlus, whose creative team will assist developer Vanillaware in resuming and completing work. “We are exceedingly proud to become a part of producing and publishing Dragon’s Crown,” stated Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Index Digital Media, Inc. “Vanillaware is a developer beloved for their tremendous visual talent and extraordinary attention to detail. Our previous collaboration with them, Odin Sphere, went on to sell over 350,000 units worldwide, entering the prestigious PlayStation Greatest Hits library. While much work remains, we believe this collaboration will be well worth the wait.” Dragon’s Crown is scheduled for release for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems in North America in 2013.
