Dragon's Crown brings Norse mythology to a side-scrolling universe

A new trailer for VanillaWare's side-scrolling RPG Dragon's Crown offers a glimpse at some of the in-game action, impressive artstyle and playable characters available in its PlayStation 3 and PS Vita release. One small technicality: It's not in English.

Also worth noting before you hit play: It takes, er, liberties with the female form.

Developer VaniallaWare has been relatively quiet about the title since its initial announcement from Atlus in 2011. The game did, however, make an appearance during the recent Vita Heaven presentation last month.

The game was only recently given a firm release date for its Japan launch. Dragon's Crown is scheduled to hit Japan on July 25. No official North American release date has been announced as of yet.
