In a press release posted on PC gaming news site Blue's News, Ubi Soft Entertainment has just announced that coding on their re-make of the classic arcade game Dungeon's Lair has been completed ("gone gold").

Dragon's Lair 3D: Return To The Lair is the highly-anticipated re-make of the classic coin-operated laserdisc arcade game:

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.† The game is targeted to launch for (PC and Xbox) on November 18.†

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

Although the PC and Xbox versions are expected to be released next week, there's no word yet as to when the Mac version of the game will be available. Stay tuned to IMG for more news of the Mac port of this game as progress develops.
