Dragon's Lair Could Be PSP-Bound
It's considered one of the "lesser-known classics" (unfortunately), but that only means a new generation should be privy to its old-school charms. United Coders has worked to deliver a remake of Dragon's Lair for the Nintendo DS, and now it appears they're also planning to bring this project to the PSP as well.
It was a fantastic fantasy adventure back in the day, one that had you embarking on a classic quest to save the damsel in distress from an evil dragon. The player would work his way through a dark and mysterious castle, where a wizard had tossed up all kinds of treacherous obstacles to get in your way. But if you succeeded, you would find the dragon's lair and become a true-blue hero by rescuing the princess! No, it's not a "next-gen" game, but that's okay, because we should always honor our roots. And if you look at this section of a recent press release for the DS version of Dragon's Lair, you'll see that PSP owners should soon be getting their own version:
"United Coders, developers of the Nintendo DS version of the game, are currently putting the final touches to the Nintendo DS version, and is currently seeking a publisher for a version of the game on the Sony PSP. In exchange for funding the development and intellectual property cost of Dragonís Lairģ for Sony PSP, the publisher will be granted the global publishing rights for the format. United Coders expect to begin development of Dragonís Lairģ for Sony PSP in February with a release date of Christmas 2008 on the platform."
Yep, we're already talking about Christmas 2008 when Christmas 2007 is but only a few days gone. Typical, right?
