Dragon’s Lair was a pretty big deal in the 80s. Maybe it seems a little silly now, but if you were that kid next standing next to me in the TG&Y arcade in 1986, then you totally know what I’m talking about. Well it took a few years, but in 1991 it got a sequel which, for a time was only available on laser disc. Now it’s coming to Blu-Ray. You know you want it. Details:
Sharpen your sword and get ready to guide Dirk the Daring as he races through time to save the beautiful Princess Daphne from the clutches of the Evil Wizard Mordroc in Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp. This long awaited sequel to the award-winning game Dragon’s Lair has been completely restored and enhanced with an all-new 5.1 surround sound mix and is now available on Blu-ray from Digital Leisure.
From legendary animator Don Bluth (‘An American Tail’, ‘The Land Before Time’) Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp allows you to play the heroic Dirk the Daring, who must stop the Evil Wizard Mordroc as he has kidnapped Princess Daphne and taken her through time! But you must hurry, for once the Casket of Doom has opened, Mordroc will place the Death Ring upon Daphne’s finger in marriage and she will be lost forever… in the Time Warp!
Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp was authored in the Blu-ray Java environment (BD-J) and features completely remastered animation, and an all-new surround sound mix, creating a fully arcade-authentic experience.
“The visuals and story of this game really bring me back.” says creator Don Bluth. “I haven’t seen this game look this good since it was on film, before we put it to laser disc at just TV resolution, two decades ago. It looks and sounds better than ever. You gotta just love Blu-ray and what you can do with sound today. People are in for a real treat with this release!”
This Blu-ray release includes the following special features:
- Interviews with game creators Don Bluth and Gary Goldman
- Picture in Picture video commentary from the creators
- Viewing Mode Options: Widescreen (16:9) or Anamorphic (4:3) video playback
