After being leaked last month, Atlus USA has announced that Dragon's Crown Pro will release on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in Spring 2018 in both physical and digital formats. The game will be priced at $49.99 ($64.99 CAD and commensurate European pricing). Dragon's Crown Pro will also be playable at PlayStation Experience in Anaheim this weekend.
Dragon's Crown Pro is a side-scrolling brawler developed by the team at Vanillaware (Odin Sphere, Muramasa: The Demon Blade) that features six playable adventurers (Fighter, Dwarf, Amazon, Wizard, Elf, and Sorceress) that explore labyrinthine dungeons in the medieval fantasy kingdom of Hydeland. This PlayStation 4 remaster features 4K resolution, a newly recorded soundtrack, as well as an option to choose between English and Japanese voice-over language. If you have a save file for Dragon's Crown on PlayStation 3 or Vita, you can even transfer your progress over.

Dragon's Crown Pro retains all the gameplay elements of the original game, including Vanillaware's gorgeous 2-D visual flair and character design, but adds current-gen upgrades.
Dragon's Crown Pro features:
- Visuals Fit for an Ancient Dragon - With beautifully refined artwork and 4K resolution support, Vanillaware's signature art style will come alive as you bludgeon, cleave, shoot, and loot through the dungeons of Hydeland.
- A Rousing Adventurer's Soundtrack - A newly recorded soundtrack by fabled composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, supported by a live orchestra, will accompany daring treasure hunters on their search for the Dragon's Crown.
- Glorious Presentation - Rejoice because English and Japanese audio options will now be available! Plus, game text will be localized in French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
- All the Royal Bells and Whistles - If you already own Dragon's Crown, your saves won't go to waste. There will be online cross-play & cross-save compatibility with existing PS3 and Vita versions. Oh, and all patches, features, and the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC from the original game will be included!
- Four Player Frenzy - With the fun local couch co-op and online multiplayer you remember, up to four players can experience countless hours battling together.
UPDATE: A definite date has been announced for its release, which is May 15 this year.
