Dragon Fantasy is a project that Adam Rippon and Bryan Sawler began in 1995 when they were both 14 years old. It got pushed to the side whilst they focused on their careers in the game industry. However, after his father passed away in late 2010, Adam resurrected the project as a tribute. Adam cut 90% of the story of the game so he could focus solely on the story of his father’s character, Ogden. Initially released on August 23rd, 2011, Dragon Fantasy has been very well received by its audience, who have consistently rated it 4.5 stars on the iOS and Mac App Stores.

It’s now due out on the April 16th for PlayStation 3 and Vita as an enhanced port featuring these improvements:

New 16-Bit Mode & Rain-Proofing
Tired of the NES era?  Upgrade now to the SNES era at no additional charge!  Players can move seamlessly between the 8-bit and 16-bit version of the game with a quick menu choice.  Ogden’s bald head has never looked so delightfully pixellated.  With the graphical upgrade comes more colors, more layers for map effects and depth, and parallax backgrounds (which we’re told makes the tech nerds super happy).   Buildings in Chapters 1 & 2 now have hastily constructed roofs which will peel away as the player enters these domiciles.  No more will the citizens of Westeria dread rain.

Remastered Music & Interface
What’s a new graphics mode without the musical improvements that went with the dawn of a new era?  Players who romp through Ogden’s story in the new 16-bit mode will be rewarded with improved sound effects and remastered music.  Not to be left behind, the status screens have also been optimized and will be more responsive in all game modes.

New Content
You asked, and we answered. Anders’ chapter now includes a new tower of trials dungeon, giving a chance to ramp up his recruitable allies: Punchibald “Punchy” Hammerstone, Casterella “Casty” Von Magicpants, and perhaps even the mysterious Serpent Diablo, before taking the plunge into the ice cavern.  Of course, no PlayStation game would be complete without trophies, so achievement hunters can track down all the secrets of the game starting April 16th

Later this year Muteki will release Dragon Fantasy: Book II.  Scheduled to come out this summer for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3, it’s the 16-bit sequel to Dragon Fantasy: Book I which continues the story of Ogden.

“Thanks to Sony for bringing our game to the big time!  We’ve been working on it since we were kids, so it’s quite literally a dream come true!”, said Adam Rippon, Creative Director.  “Launching as part of the Sony Spring Fever Sale means the game will be on sale for $8 at launch for PS Plus members… I kind of dig it: 8 bits, 8 bucks!”.

        Indeed, that would be the final phase of The Sickness. I don’t think I’m quite there yet.

        Maybe. Possibly.

    its cross play isn’t it

    • http://twitter.com/mutekicorp mutekicorp

      it’s a single player game but supports cross-save (that is, you can save your progress to PSN on your PS3, pick up your Vita, and load from that saved data and resume, and vice-versa)
