The PS3 and Vita multiplayer brawler's latest video shows off the six classes as they get trapped and fight their way through a sprawling labyrinth.
The game uses hand-drawn character designs by developer Vanillaware, the studio that previously worked on games such as Odin Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
It will offer branching pathways in each level based on how users play, such as running away and playing more defensively or stealing certain items from bosses.
The game supports online multiplayer for up to four users on either Vita or PS3.
Dragon's Crown is slated to launch this summer on Sony's systems.
