Vanillware has revealed the PS Vita’s Dragon’s Crown is a long-delayed project, originally intended for the Dreamcast.

GameSetWatch reports the side-scrolling action RPG is a spiritual successor to Princess Crown, which appeared on the Saturn in 1997, with a PSP port in 2005.

The sequel was supposed to appear on the Dreamcast, but Vanillaware didn’t get around to it until completing Muramasa on the Wii.

The four-player title has a strong emphasis on co-operative play, and boasts the studio’s traditional approach to lush visuals and tight action – alá Odin Sphere.

Realistic character design? Not so much. Enjoy the trailer, few screens, and collection of artwork below.
