Dragon’s Crown: New Difficulty and Dungeon Available Now


Dragon's Crown

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house,
No DualShock was stirring because you didn’t know there was a new Dragon’s Crown patch out.
The players are all partying in the tavern with cheer,
Because “Holy Crap!” a new difficulty level and dungeon are here!

I’m fairly certain that’s how that poem begins, and I refuse to accept any corrections to it.

It’s been a while since Dragon’s Crown launched, but we haven’t stopped working to make it better. We added cross play, improved the game balance, and tweaked many things to make the game even more fun. You would think we were done by now, but today we have a true holiday miracle for you: another brand new feature. So knock the cobwebs off your Fighters, Elves, Wizards, and the rest, because we’re adding in a lot of new content with The Fifth Dragon’s Crown Patch.

If you’ve ever played a Vanillaware game before (Odin Sphere and Muramasa: Rebirth spring to mind), you know the brutal difficulty the games are known for. We got the impression that a lot of people didn’t feel Dragon’s Crown was hard enough on the way to level 99, so now there’s a brand new Ultimate difficulty level. After you clear the ninth layer of the Labyrinth of Chaos, you can access the new difficulty in the Temple.

So what’s it do? Well, it makes things harder, for one. But harder monsters mean players need to be better, stronger, and faster, so we’re raising the level cap from 99 to 255. You read that right, you now have 156 levels to grind out.

“However that’s various grinding the identical ranges time and again,” you’ll say. Neatly, we have now you coated there, too! When you’re on Final problem, there will probably be a brand new dungeon unlocked, known as the Tower of Mirages. It’s randomly generated and it has tens of hundreds of ranges. TENS. OF. THOUSANDS. I say this with all sincerity, when you consider that I do know a few of you’re going to check out to KO it: “Excellent good fortune.”

Discovering it exhausting to surrender your maxed-out Dwarf to start a brand new personality? We mounted that too (form of). So long as you’ve gotten a shop file with the Story mode cleared, which you can make a brand new persona that skips over that phase and leads straight into the Talisman assortment quest. Now there aren’t any excuses for now not making alts!

Along with all that, we threw in just a few different enhancements for gameplay steadiness and more than a few different tweaks to controls, NPCs, and personality abilities.

So go forth this vacation season and revel in all of the new stuff from Dragon’s Crown!
