In 2015 Vanillaware revealed 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the latest very pretty game from Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere director George Kamitani. Today Atlus announced it will be localizing and releasing the PS4/Vita game in the West. The game’s Japanese release date is still TBA, so expect it sometime after that.
Odin Sphere for the PlayStation 2 is a gorgeous 2D masterpiece of an action role-playing game with a big slowdown problem. The high-definition remake, out today for the PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita, does away with the game’s one glaring flaw.
It’s called Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir. One of the most beautiful PlayStation 2 games ever made is going HD.
Muramasa: The Demon Blade was truly a lovely game. While it was originally released in 2009, there are now allegations that it's been copied by a Korean game developer. There are claims that the knock-off even stole Muramasa's original code.
Perhaps you've heard that PS Vita game Muramasa Rebirth is getting new downloadable content? It looks to be an eyeful.
A long-lived forest race who are often much older than they appear to human eyes. While slight of body, they are deadly masters of the bow and arrow, using their superior athleticism to fight nimbly and fearlessly from a distance
Dragon's Crown designer George Kamitani says his characters—including the sexy, controversial sorceress—are all exaggerated so they'll stand out from other fantasy art.
OK, so there are some issues with the character design in Dragon's Crown. Jason has written about this, people are divided about it, and many in both camps have very valid reasons for their respective cases.
The newest trailer for Vanillaware's side scroller Dragon's Crown shelves the questionably-designed Sorceress, showcasing the ridiculously muscular Dwarf instead—although, he looks more like a viking on steroids than a dwarf. Dragon's Crown is coming to PS3/Vita on July 25.
This is the newest trailer for Dragon's Crown, the Vanillaware-developed game that will be out this year for PS3 and Vita. It features the sorceress, one character from the game. As you can see, the sorceress was designed by a 14-year-old boy. Perhaps game development studios should stop hiring teenagers? At least…
The action-RPG, from Vanillaware, is out on PS3 and Vita later this year. "Later" can't come soon enough.
Dragon's Crown, an action-RPG from boutique Japanese developers Vanillaware (Odin Sphere), has been missing in action since its E3 debut last year. If you were thinking that meant the game was dead, though, you're wrong! Atlus just signed on to publish it on both PS3 and Vita, and it'll be out next year.
PlayStation title Dragon's Crown has the worst game title font I've ever seen. It also has enormous norgs. Go figure.
Not counting erotic game developers, Japanese game developer Vanillaware must surely must have the market for the industry's sauciest website cornered. Don't believe us? Check out its landing page.
Odin Sphere developer Vanillaware brings their signature hand-drawn 2D style to the Nintendo Wii with Muramasa: The Demon Blade, a touching tale of a boy, a girl, and a whole bunch of swords.
Savvy marketing, this. For the September issue of play magazine, Ignition entertainment managed to get gorgeous Wii side-scroller Muramasa top billing on the front cover. Bottom billing, too.
Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a lovely looking side-scroller. But it could be even lovelier at higher-than-Wii resolution, an option not out of the realm of possibility, according to studio founder George Kamitami.
