Dragon’s Lair HD DVD Dated

DL_HDDVD.jpgFollowing a successful HD-remastered Blu-ray re-release of Dragon’s Lair, Digital Leisure has now announced release details regarding the upcoming HD DVD version (trailer below). Dirk the Daring’s classic arcade adventure will be available in HD DVD format for standalone players and the Xbox 360 add-on drive on August 15th, featuring full 1080p HD video, interviews with Dragon’s Lair creators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Rick Dyer, and full length video commentary.

“I’m amazed at the high definition video.” says Don Bluth, one of the original creators of Dragon’s Lair.  “Finally, the game looks as good as it did on film. And, the 5.1 audio sounds even better than original. Now whether you have Blu-ray or HD DVD you can enjoy this terrific, high definition version of Dragon’s Lair.”

Digital Leisure will also be releasing Space Ace and Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp in HD DVD (and Blu-ray) format later on down the road. We’ll keep you posted as additional info comes along.
