It’s official – Dragon’s Lair is coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade from Microsoft Studios and Digital Leisure.

Dragon’s Lair for XBLA is a super rad title that adds a whole new level to the Don-Bluth-animated, dragon-fighting, disc-dropping, ball-avoiding, Dirk-the-Daring-killing experience we’ve loved for years. We’re super proud to be able to provide another platform everyone to enjoy Dragon’s Lair on. (For those of you keeping track, XBLA will be platform SIXTY-SIX for the game that started in arcades back in 1983.) Enjoy the screenshots below and stay tuned for more Dragon’s Lair news posting soon!!!
UPDATE: We’ve been informed by reliable sources (aka, The Internet) that Burnout: Crash for XBLA, from our friends at Electronic Arts and Criterion Games , was the first XBLA game to include both Kinect and controller support. We regret the error and have sent our fact checker to Microsoft Building 7 to get a left handed edition of PowerPoint.
