Publisher Udon Entertainment announced last week, that this November it would be releasing a manga series based on Vanillaware’s 2D action-RPG for the PlayStation 3 and Vita, Dragon’s Crown (which was also just announced to be coming to PS4).
Adapted and drawn by Yuztan, the Dragon’s Crown manga delivers all the same action, fan service, and craziness that the game, created by George Kamitani and Vanillaware, is known for. The story of the title follows six heroes, the Fighter, the Sorceress, the Elf, the Wizard, the Amazon, and the Dwarf, as they come together for a quest of riches, glory, and the honor of the kingdom of Hydeland. Their journey, for mostly riches, will take the team through catacombs, castles, and labyrinths, giving readers a chance to revisit all of the fun of the game.
The 196-page first volume ($12.99) of the Dragon’s Crown manga will be available in mid-November of this year. A second and final volume of the series is also expected to follow, in 2018.
If you are interested in experiencing the action of the game yourself, Dragon’s Crown was published in North America for the PlayStation 3 and Vita, by Atlus USA. You can learn more about the game, by visiting the official site. Once again, the game is also headed to PS4.
In more video game related news, Udon also announced earlier this week, that it would be re-releasing its original Street Fighter comic book series, written by Ken Siu-Chong, with main story artwork provided by artists Arnold Tsang and Alvin Lee. The six-issue Street Fighter Reloaded mini-series will make its debut in November of 2017, with issues one and two, while issues three through six release every two weeks through December and January. The issues will be value priced at $0.99 each. A softcover trade paperback will also be made available, in April of 2018.
