One major difference between the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Dragon’s Crown

Dragon's Crown

Dragon’s Crown is an upcoming fantasy side-scrolling beat ‘em up for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 by Vanillaware.  Despite being on different systems (one being on a handheld, the other a home console), the game will essentially be the same, save some differences in gameplay. One notable difference is the use of the PlayStation Vita’s touchscreen, which Kashow Oda, the Dragon’s Crown’s producer, detailed.

“On PlayStation 3, you use the analog stick [like a cursor] to select objects such as healing items. We wanted to take advantage of features on Vita, like the touch screen, so on Vita you can do the same thing by touching objects on the screen.”

He then added that “in addition to items, you can touch parts of the background. Walls, for example, may collapse if you touch them opening new paths.”
