The Dragon's Crown art exhibit and trial event was pretty good and a tad underwhelming at the same time. I can only assume that the artists at Vanillaware are doing their works in full-digital without relying on traditional medium, because the artworks were all printouts. Still, there were some new stuff to see, and they were also giving out some nice freebies. Interestingly enough, there were minimum restrictions on photography.

They had a few new announcements on that side of things as well. First, a Sorceress figure is being released by [URL=http://www.orchidseed.co.jp/]Orchid Seed[/URL] and a protype was on display. There's also a 1/1 scale model figure of the game's fairy Tiki coming out from [URL=http://www.vertex-jp.net/]Vertex[/URL], and figures for the Amazon and Elf are underway by [URL=http://www.megahouse.co.jp/]MegaHouse[/URL]. MegaHouse will be showing the prototypes at the upcoming Wonderfest on the 28th. .....Hey, no dwarf figures?

I'm not going over on details since there's been plenty reported already, but here's my two cents on what I thought. - There was supposed to be a developer at the trial event to answer the harder questions, but he was MIA at the time. There were staffs from Index/Atlus though, and I've been told that Atlus' official stance regarding whether joysticks can be used for the game is that... the game has been developed for play on the default PS3 pad and they make no recommendations for it on joysticks. It's not going to hinder my purchase though, especially after seeing the preorder bonus. - Graphic-wise, both the Vita and PS3 version are really good. However, you really can't see details like the character's faces in the Vita version because the screen is too small. The rare exception may be when you're in the town where the screen is zoomed in. - Control-wise, the Vita version is superior to the PS3 simply because of the touch pad. It makes the cursor control a lot easier. - This is one of those games where you want to pick up whichever version you have more friends to play with. It's the same thing as Capcom's D&D; you can play it solo, but its true fun comes when you play it with people. - The preorder/early-purchaser bonus is a lot better than I imagined. I thought it'd be a mini-booklet about the size of the PS3 disc package, but it's actually the size of an issue of National Geographic (B5 size). It's 64 pages so it's got less pages than the world's beloved nature magazine... but this bonus booklet comes in hardcover so it's around the same thickness. If you're picking up this game, you may as well get the preorder unless you're thinking of buying it used or old. [URL=http://www.mmcafe.com/pics/events/dragonscrown/dragonscrown_14.JPG]You can sort of see the booklet in this shot[/URL] (direct photography of the booklet was prohibited) - The Dwarf is round, cute, and feels like a Sonic on steroids when he's in the air. - These adventurers are hungry! You leave them in neutral for about a second and you see them eating already. - Doing dashes with forward x 2 motion is really hard, both likewise on the PS3 and Vita. I thought doing it was a tad tight back with P4A, but Dragon's Crown takes the cake. Fortunately you can also do it with forward + attack, which is the recommended/official way of doing it in the game. - The in-game gallery seems to have a bit over 50 images.
