Folks who pre-order Vanillaware and Atlus' forthcoming 2D hack-and-slash game, Dragon's Crown,
will also receive a 64-page limited edition art book for their troubles. The paperback tome includes character and environmental artwork by Dragon's Crown
designer/artist/Vanillaware president George Kamitani, in addition to pieces by other Japanese video game artists, such as Capcom alumnus Kinu Nishimura and Akira Yasuda.
Atlus has also revealed the game's North American box art, which does a good job of obfuscating the art design's more controversial
aspects. Dragon's Crown
will drop for PlayStation 3 and Vita August 6, at $49.99 and $39.99 respectively.
