Dragon Marked for Death: info round-up (sets, early purchase bonus, DLC, voice cast, and more), livestream recording

Over the past few days, Inti Creates have shared plenty of details about Dragon Marked for Death, along with some pictures and even some footage. We’ve rounded it all in this post for your reading and viewing convenience!

First, some additional details about the two sets. As you probably already know, Dragon Marked for Death is releasing in two sets. They each contain the full game, but only 2 of the 4 playable characters. Instead of releasing just one version with all 4 characters for $29.99 (which is quite pricey for a digital game), Inti Creates decided to split the playable characters in two sets, and sell the game for $14.99, making it more affordable.

That way, you can enjoy the full experience with just two of the characters (no other content was cut), and if you really like it and want the other two characters, you can always buy the second set as DLC for the same price. Inti Creates explain it’s the most content-packed they ever created, so even if you only end up buying one set, you’re still in for a wild ride!

Here’s details about the two sets:

Frontline Fighters

Purchase Dragon Marked for Death: Frontline Fighters to play through the game as the Empress and Warrior. The Empress is a well-balanced DPS character who bears the power of the Astral Dragon in her arm. She utilizes powerful sword attacks at close range and fiery dragon breath attacks at mid to long range to make short work of her foes.  The Warrior is a tank type character who bears the power of the Astral Dragon’s scales in his torso. He can deploy an impregnable shield that protects and heals his allies, and can deliver powerful attacks with his two-handed weapons.

Advanced Attackers

Purchase Dragon Marked for Death: Advanced Attackers to play through the game as the Shinobi and Witch. The Shinobi is a quick and nimble DPS character who bears the power of the Astral Dragon in his legs. Armed with deadly kunai and shuriken, he excels at generating/keeping aggro, and he is well equipped at avoiding damage with his unparalleled speed and by utilizing tricky movement abilities such as the wall kick, glide, and double-jump. The Witch is a spell-caster that bears the extraordinary depth of the Astral Dragon’s knowledge. She can damage her enemies with powerful offensive spells and heal her allies with restorative magic.

Also, if you pre-purchase the game on the Nintendo eShop (now possible in Europe, following North America and Japan last week), or buy the retail version at launch, you will be able to get the Striker Gear Pack as bonus:

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this set will be available for purchase separately after launch…

Speaking of additional content, Inti Creates has shared details about the two DLC sets planned for the game:

  • Additional Quest: “The Dragonblood Village” (available from launch): includes just one new quest
  • Additional Scenario: “The Dragonblood Thief” (release planned for March 28th): new scenario, featuring several quests telling a brand new story.

Next: the retail release in Europe and North America. Unfortunately, it won’t be simultaneous like in Japan, and will come at a later date (as soon as possible, basically). It will be published by Nighthawk Interactive, and will cost $49.99.

It will include the following:

  • All four playable characters: Empress, Warrior, Shinobi, Witc
  • Download code for the Additional Quest DLC: The Dragonblood Village and The Dragonblood Thief
  • Download code for the Striker Gear pack

Here’s what the North American boxart looks like:

Now, onto the game itself. Inti Creates certainly didn’t do things half-heartedly for Dragon Marked for Death, and this also applies to voice acting. They went and hired no less than 16 voice actors to voice the 4 playable characters in the game. Each character has 4 possible voices, and players will be able to choose which one they prefer!

Here’s a video introducing all 16 voice actors:
