Dragon’s Crown, also reffered to as PlayStation 3 and Vita side-scroller has become the most expensive project VanillaWare has ever produced. The current exchange rate is expected to be around $1 million.
Dragon Crown will not support cross-buy. First announced by Ignition and later Atlus picking the project up, Atlus declared it more expensive than Ignition had expected.
“Dragon’s Crown is actually the first title our company has developed that has gone over the ¥100 million wall in costs. I’m very thankful to have met the release date without problems.” said VanillaWare founder and lead artist, George Kamitani on Twitter.
VanillaWare’s noted previous titles were Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Odin Sphere.
