Dragon’s Lair, With Kinect Support, Arrives On Xbox Live In May

Announced back in March, the Xbox Live port of Dragon’s Lair was dated for May 18 by Microsoft yesterday. The game will feature Kinect support, allowing you to jump out of the way of the Lizard King and dodge the columns on the mechanical horse, if you so prefer. Digital Leisure is handling the port and the Kinect support.

Judging by that video I’m very sceptical that Kinect can make this game any more manageable. It’ll be fun if by fun one means “dying a lot”. Dragon’s Lair is the product of an era when game experiences were designed to be short so that they kept sucking quarters from your pocket. Therefore, this features a ton of trial and error, even if you know exactly what to do. And I’ve beaten Dragon’s Lair across multiple platforms at least a dozen times.

A premium theme and picture pack is available now on the Marketplace if you’re that fired up about Dragon’s Lair. Or check out the upcoming documentary on the game.


  • Wow this game has survived for so long since the late 80’s and had been on almost every console imaginable, and without any major changes just better quality video and resolution.

    Kinect may actually work for this.
    They should also look at also releasing the other games Dragons Lair II, Space Ace and Space Ace II.

    But this has to be the last one, ok one for the virtual reality holo deck.
