Encore brings Dragon's Lair 3D to consoles

Encore has confirmed the upcoming release of Dragon's Lair 3D on the PlayStation 2 and the GameCube.


Encore announced recently that it has reached an agreement with Dragon's Lair LLC to publish Dragon's Lair 3D for the Sony PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo GameCube. The game is based on the classic Dragon's Lair game, but features an entirely new 3D engine, new characters, more than 200 new rooms to explore, an original score, and more.

"Dragon's Lair is a legendary franchise, and we believe that this new version will appeal to both classic gaming fans worldwide and a brand new generation of gamers," said Michael Bell, chairman and CEO of Encore. "Dragon's Lair 3D will set the standard for 3D gameplay by offering state-of-the-art animation and character movement, while staying true to the design and storyline of the original arcade game."

Many of the minds behind the original Dragon's Lair is involved with the new game, including Don Bluth and Rick Dyer. Both the GameCube and PS2 versions will be released in Q3 2002. For more on the game, read our PC gamespace .
