Dragon's Lair 3D First Look
8:24 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Daily Radar has written up a first look of the upcoming title Dragon's Lair 3D, a 3D sequel to the classic 80's arcade adventure game. Like the original, Dragon's Lair 3D will have cartoon-like characters, but the entire game will be rendered in stunning 3D with an all-new engine. The game will also have various levels of control, with the 'normal' setting allowing you to play it as a third-person adventure (ala Rune or FAKK2). An easier level will simulate the original game's controls in which you only made certain decisions and the hero Dirk walks through pre-scripted events. This should make both old- and new-school gamers happy. Here's a clip from the preview with more:
What they have told us is that that Dirk will have a lot more to use this time around than his favorite poking stick. The trusty old sword will be back, only this time, "the sword will have different powerups and additional attack movements that Dirk will receive throughout the game," Parsons said, "and some of these powerups and movements will require Dirk to use some manna, and some will be abilities he will always be able to use." In addition to the sword, Dirk will also have a crossbow that will fire a wide variety of bolts found throughout the castle, which will add some strategy to the action.Check out the rest of the preview for more information. Dragon's Lair 3D is set to come to the Mac and PC early next year. Dragonstone Software is developing the game, and it will be published by Blue Byte. We'll be bringing you more on the title as it nears completion, so stay tuned.
