Dragon’s Lair 3D (Gamecube/Ps2) - Facts & Screens

by Rainier on May 7, 2002 @ 12:55 p.m. PDT

Dragon’s Lair 3D is an entirely new, built-from-the-ground-up, three-dimensional version of the highly successful 1980s coin-op phenomenon. While it stays true to the design and storyline of the arcade game, it offers a 3D experience unlike anything else Dragon’s Lair fans have played before.

Princess Daphne has been kidnapped by the evil dragon Singe and hidden in a medieval castle owned by Mordroc, a powerful and malevolent wizard. To save her, players take on the persona of Dirk the Daring, a goofy but courageous knight. As he advances through the castle with the help of a magical amulet, Dirk must overcome a slew of challenges, from jumping over flaming pits and climbing ropes to flying across chasms and battling swarms of the wizard’s minions. Gamers must use cat-quick reflexes, cunning and resourcefulness to solve puzzles, defeat a variety of enemies, and fight their way through the castle to find Daphne and save the kingdom from Mordroc's clutches.

Features:

  • True control over Dirk, who alone has more than 150 animation sequences
  • 43 areas within the castle to explore – for the first time, in 3D
  • More than 250 rooms to explore, many of them brand new
  • Close to 40 different characters, from Cyclops Worms and the Grim Reaper to the Fire Goon Warriors
  • Over a dozen new characters, including the Lightning Drake
  • Realistic and amazingly fluid animation with a unique animated cel look
  • Power-ups, hidden secrets and special unlocks
  • Brand-new intro and ending movies, evoking the look of the original arcade game, hand animated by Don Bluth
  • 60 original music scores
  • Dolby™ Surround Sound (Prologic)
