Ubi Soft Entertainment announced Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair for the Xbox and the PC has shipped to retail stores nationwide. Developed by Dragonstone Software, Dragon's Lair 3D features the same fun, pick-up-and-play gameplay that made the arcade version a blockbuster hit in 1983. Now gamers will be able to experience Dragon's Lair 3D with the highest quality graphics and sound available today. Dragon's Lair 3D is rated "T-Teen" and is available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 on Xbox and $29.99 on PC.
"Dragon's Lair is a classic, landmark game that has always pushed the gaming industry's limits in terms of graphics and gameplay," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "Dragon's Lair 3D is now the FIRST Xbox title to feature 1080i HDTV compatibility, breathing vibrant color to the characters and environments that jump off the screen!"

The Legend Continues!

True to the classic arcade phenomenon, Dragon's Lair sets players against the menacing dragon Singe and the evil wizard Mordroc to save the beautiful Princess Daphne. With full control of Dirk the Daring, a valiant but clumsy knight, Dragon's Lair 3D players fight their way through the castle's treacherous, labyrinthine-like halls to overcome new monsters and obstacles lurking in the shadows. Incredible new gameplay includes jumping over flaming pits, climbing ropes to fly across chasms, and battling swarms of the wizard's minions with Dirk's sword and crossbow.

Other game features include:

  • 18 large, detailed, action-packed levels featuring more than 40 environments to explore and 250+ rooms with numerous puzzles, traps, power-ups and hidden secrets to uncover
  • A real-time, 3D modeled and hand painted, textured world features new next-generation visuals
  • The first Xbox title to feature 1080i High Definition TV graphics mode, along with 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio and 16:9 anamorphic widescreen support
  • New intro and ending movies hand-animated by legendary animator Don Bluth

"Dragon's Lair is a franchise loved by fans all over the world for more than 20 years," said Rick Dyer, president and CEO of Dragon's Lair, LLC. "Reinventing this franchise into a three-dimensional world utilizing the most powerful game graphics ever will be a treat for Dirk fans everywhere."
