• Muteki Corp has announced their classic RPG tale, Dragon Fantasy, is ready to launch on PlayStation 3 and Vita next week.  Whether you’re new to the Dragon Fantasy series or a fan of the iOS and PC/Mac version, there’s plenty of amazing content to explore in this updated release.  From graphics and musical upgrades to a new Tower of Trials and even specially constructed roofs, there’s a little something for everyone in this enhanced port.

    New 16-Bit Mode & Rain-Proofing

    Tired of the NES era?  Upgrade now to the SNES era at no additional charge!  Players can move seamlessly between the 8-bit and 16-bit version of the game with a quick menu choice.  Ogden’s bald head has never looked so delightfully pixellated.  With the graphical upgrade comes more colors, more layers for map effects and depth, and parallax backgrounds (which we’re told makes the tech nerds super happy).   Buildings in Chapters 1 & 2 now have hastily constructed roofs which will peel away as the player enters these domiciles.  No more will the citizens of Westeria dread rain.

    Remastered Music & Interface

    What’s a new graphics mode without the musical improvements that went with the dawn of a new era?  Players who romp through Ogden’s story in the new 16-bit mode will be rewarded with improved sound effects and remastered music.  Not to be left behind, the status screens have also been optimized and will be more responsive in all game modes.

    New Content

    Anders’ chapter now includes a new tower of trials dungeon, giving a chance to ramp up his recruitable allies: Punchibald “Punchy” Hammerstone, Casterella “Casty” Von Magicpants, and perhaps even the mysterious Serpent Diablo, before taking the plunge into the ice cavern.  Of course, no PlayStation game would be complete without trophies, so achievement hunters can track down all the secrets of the game starting April 16th

    “Thanks to Sony for bringing our game to the big time!  We’ve been working on it since we were kids, so it’s quite literally a dream come true!”, said Adam Rippon, Creative Director.  “Launching as part of the Sony Spring Fever Sale means the game will be on sale for $8 at launch for PS Plus members… I kind of dig it: 8 bits, 8 bucks!”.
