It was stunning then, and it’s stunning now: Arcade1Up is thrilled to release Dragon’s Lair in a home arcade form factor, faithfully reproducing its nostalgic gameplay, and gorgeous cabinet design!
In 1983, video game designer Rick Dyer and legendary animator Don Bluth captivated the industry with Dragon’s Lair®, a spectacular game that was unlike anything seen before, so ambitious and so advanced that it mesmerized video game players across generations.
With its hand drawn animation, creative levels, and strong dose of sword and sorcery humor, crowds gathered around Dragon’s Lair® just to catch a glimpse of this “I can’t believe I’m playing a cartoon!” sensation.
Now, relive that magic at home, no quarters required! The Arcade1Up Dragon’s Lair® home arcade cabinet not only features the title game, but also the sequel Dragon’s Lair® II: Time Warp, and the sci-fi adventure themed Space Ace®. All featuring the beloved animation style of Don Bluth, all a phenomenal fun time.
Renowned for producing authentic arcade experiences, Arcade1Up game cabinets are absolute must-haves for family game rooms, man caves, or a welcome distraction in the office. Among the most requested retro game titles for Arcade1Up to release, Dragon’s Lair® — with its included matching riser — will become a centerpiece in any home arcade collection. It’s Dirk the Daring to the rescue!
