In preparation for the release of Dragon’s Crown Pro next month, Atlus USA has released a cool little video illustrating the differences between the old HD visuals and the shiny new 4K rendering. The video also features a peak at the newly recorded orchestral score (which has been done for every track in the game).
Some other features from the new version (lifted from the press release):
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.
Dragon's Crown Pro will be available physically and digitally for $49.99 on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro on May 15. Super-fans may be interested in checking out the Battle-Hardened Edition, which includes 7 collectible skill cards and a cool metal case.
