Dragon Marked for Death dev blog - digital release structure, pre-purchase bonus, additional quest DLC, and physical version

We have already discussed release details for Dragon Marked for Death, but some appear to be confused about how everything works. Thankfully Inti Creates has put out a one-stop shop for all that information in their latest dev blog. Get filled in on the details below.

The release of Dragon Marked for Death is almost upon us, and now the game is available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo Switch eShop in North America! (pre-purchase opens in Europe on Jan. 17th) Let’s take a closer look at how the game is being sold digitally, and get an overall look at what’s on the table for this game!

Dragon Marked for Death is available digitally in two sets, each of which contains the base game’s content for two of the four playable Dragonblood Clan characters for $14.99 each. Rather than release the game with all four characters in one for a $29.99 price point, we wanted to make the game more financially accessible to people. No matter which set you get, you will still be able to experience everything the game has to offer as the characters you have available to you. The only difference is which characters you will be able to play as right off the bat.

Time to learn a bit about the Warrior, another character appearing in Dragon Marked for Death. He's one of four playable characters in the game.

When he goes out fishing one day, the Divine Knights attack his hometown – eradicating all of his fellow orphans and friends.”

Dragon Marked for Death was originally planned for PSP

Believe it or not, Dragon Marked for Death was originally was originally going to see release on the PSP. This info comes straight from Inti Creates president Takuya Aizu. The original concept materials for the game date all the way back to August 18, 2008. It seems much of the gameplay ideas/mechanics from that original concept remain intact for the upcoming Switch version. As to why the game never saw release on PSP, Mr. Aizu never explained.

Dragon Marked for Death - official prologue details

To go along with the concept art and screens, Inti Creates has released some new story details for the upcoming Dragon Marked for Death. Check out that content below.

Prologue

Long ago, forces of Celestials and Astral Dragons clashed in a realm steeped in chaos. Caught in the midst of a battle between gods and dragons, humans either prayed for salvation or hid in the dragons’ shadow, waiting for peace.

After eons of conflict, the largest of the Astral Dragons, Atruum, was felled. Run through at the hand of the Celestial Primatis, Atruum plunged to the earth below. The forces of the Astral Dragons soon fell into disarray and were defeated one by one. The Celestials claimed a hard-won victory.

The Celestials used their holy weapons to purify the corpses of the enormous Astral Dragons, and used their bodies as replacements for the land lost in the war. When their work was done, they created two moons in the sky to watch over the lands, and left the realm.

The Dragonblood Clan are a group of humans descending from people who were once saved by Atruum. They look similar to regular humans, but bear a Dragon Scar on their body that contains draconic power. They continue to worship Atruum, and thus are despised other humans and treated on the same level as slaves or the poor.

Apart from their Dragon Scar, there are no physical differences between the Dragonblood Clan and regular folk. However, when they bear within them strong feelings such as anger or despair, they are able to connect with the Astral Dragon’s consciousness and form a pact. However, the draconic power does not go into their Dragon Scar. Instead, a dragon itself overtakes the body part with the Scar.
