Atlus announced Dragon’s Crown Pro last month, a remastered version of Vanillaware’s PlayStation 2 title. However, Atlus needs to push the release date of the game back in Japan. The original release date was January 25, but the new date is February 8.

To make up for the delay, Atlus will offer a special Dragon’s Crown gamebook, a Dungeons & Dragons style pen and paper game based off the game.

If you’re unfamiliar with Dragon’s Crown, we do have a review of the PlayStation 3 original! It’s an informative review:

First and foremost, Dragon’s Crown is a beautiful game. The art style is wonderful to look at and the screenshots don’t do it justice. You have to see this game in motion to get a full appreciation for how beautiful it really is. I never got tired of the characters, environments or effects that filled the game because they were all so pleasant to look at. This is also one of the only games that I have been excited for artwork to be the unlocks after completing side quests because each piece of art (all done by a variety of artists) is truly stunning. Dragon’s Crown doesn’t further the argument that games can be art, but rather proves that art can be games.

The game’s sound design melds perfectly with the visuals and really brings everything together. From the music in each stage to the sound effects to the narration that hides a subtle hint of dry wit, the audio of Dragon’s Crown is noticeable. But if you’re here reading this you are probably a gamer, and you probably want to know about how the game plays, right? Well alright then. You’ve forced my hand. Let’s move on to gameplay.

Dragon’s Crown Pro will release on PlayStation 4 February 8, 2018 in Japan.
