Dragon’s Crown is a fond throwback to classic side-scrolling beat ‘em ups like Streets of Rage, or more specifically, Golden Axe (you can totally ride dragons!). Stages involve going from left to right with a four-strong group consisting of knights, amazons, dwarves, elves, wizards or sorceresses.

Coming from Vanillaware, the dev team behind Muramasa, we’ve got high hopes for the Vita/PS3 game. We’re still waiting for an EU release date, but American gamers can expect the game August 6th. Enjoy the video after the break.

Here’s the latest batch of character gameplay videos for the upcoming side-scrolling beat em’ up / action RPG hybrid, Dragon’s Crown, for the PS3 and Vita. The Amazon warrior makes the previously-revealed top-heavy Sorceress look like a nun, with an outfit seemingly made of string.
