Dragons's Lair 3D to Appear at CGE
1:33 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A press release from the Classic Gaming Expo found its way to our inbox recently, noting that Dragon's Lair 3D will be appearing at this Las Vegas event next month. This remake of the video arcade classic hasn't been seen for some time (including no presence at this year's E3), and it's great to see the Dragonstone team will be showing off their work for all to see.

Dragon's Lair 3D will feature a full-3D game engine used to re-create the atmosphere and gameplay of the original arcade machine. Different modes will be available which will allow you to play the title as a 'normal' third-person shooter or in the classic, quick-decision style of Dragon's Lair. Cartoon-like characters shading will make elements of the game look like the original animated adventure, though the actual environments will have many modern effects gamers have come to expect. Here's a clip from the PR with more:

The games' creators have formed Dragon's Lair LLC. as well as
Dragonstone Software, a development house ready to bring out
top quality software titles for the PC, Mac, PS2, and X-Box
platforms. Dragon's Lair 3-D will be the first release and
players will again assume the role of the brave knight, Dirk
the Daring, as he fights to save princess Daphne. "With our
current 3-D technology, we can give the player complete control
over Dirk, with the ability to fully explore the castle in his
quest to rescue the princess," states Rick Dyer, one of
the creators of the original Dragon's Lair game. "In Dragon's
Lair 3-D we take the player on an adventurous trek via a
technically innovative 3-D game that will impress both the
reminiscing and modern hard core gamer."
With this showing on August 11, there is sure to be more information on this game appearing soon. Stay tuned to IMG for the latest word on its status.
