They actually took direct inspiration from golden axe, and few other games like Dungeons, and dragons arcade.

They didn't need to take inspiration, Kamitani worked on Capcom's D&D games.

Anyway, it's nothing like Golden Axe. GA is sluggish, clunky and lacks advanced techniques or combos. DC is much more technical and combo-oriented, with strong RPG elements.

I would say it's much more akin to King of Dragons (SNES, arcade) than Golden Axe, but that's just my opinion.

Did not know that, but still doesn't change my opinion that's it seems to have more in common with King of Dragons to me.

I wish Capcom would release the Capcom Classics Arcade Collection 1 and 2 in HD.

Sega at least did that with Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.

The games are in their original form, just with 720P HD.

Dragon's Crown is really the only designed from scratch HD arcade side-scroller of it's type this gen.

Not sure where you got that idea from, since it's really not.

If you don't count Castle Crashers, Dungeon Fighter Live, Sacred Citadel, and some others I'm probably forgetting. But none of them can even compare.
