Enix of America has shipped Dragon Warrior III for the Nintendo Game Boy Color. Based on the classic NES game, DWIII follows the exploits of a 16-year-old hero who must travel through a world of deserts, mountains, pyramids, towers, and dungeons.
"The support we have received for Dragon Warrior III from both retailers and consumers has been phenomenal, as the franchise has become one of the premier role-playing games ever introduced," said Paul Handelman, president of Enix America. "With more than 70 hours of overall gameplay, Dragon Warrior III is the perfect game for travelers, and it's the ideal product to kick off the Year of the Dragon, during which we will introduce a total four new Dragon Warrior titles by year's end."
Enix will release Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Cobi's Journey and Tara's Adventure for Game Boy Color in September and Dragon Warrior VII for the Sony PlayStation in October.
