Two volumes to tell the tale.
Vanillawaren's Dragon's Crown is emblematic of what makes the developer so special; the graphics of its games look like they were drawn by hand right onto the screen. Dragon's Crown in particular looks like an over-the-top comic book come to life, so it's perhaps fitting that the game will be getting adapted into a manga. The series is set to be published here in the West by Udon Entertainment, which is best known for its astounding video game art books and Street Fighter comic book adaptations.
Here's Udon's official rundown of what fans can expect from the series:
"FANTASY, FIGHTING, AND FAN SERVICE ARE ON FULL DISPLAY IN THE ‘DRAGON’S CROWN’ MANGA
The Fighter, the Sorceress, the Elf, the Wizard, the Amazon, and the Dwarf! These six heroes have come together to quest for riches, for glory, and for the honor of the kingdom of Hydeland! (Though really, it’s mostly for the riches…) Join an epic journey through catacombs, castles, and labyrinths, in the fun and fantastic video game manga – DRAGON’S CROWN!
Adapted and drawn by artist Yuztan (Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid), the Dragon’s Crown manga captures all the hard hitting action, sexiness and silliness of the beat-em-up RPG. Created by George Kamitani and Vanillaware, the game is known for its gorgeous artwork and designs, and the manga certainly lives up to that visual legacy."
Volume 1 of Dragon's Crown will debut this October, with a final volume set to come out some time next year.
