Odd as it may seem, Digital Leisure has released the laserdisc classic arcade game Dragon’s Lair on Blu-ray. This game has been on pretty much every disc-based format by now – Jaguar, 3DO, CD-i, you name it (no Turbo CD or PC-FX version though). They put it out on HD DVD some time ago, but are just now coming around to Blu-ray. It’s apparently a BD-J, or Blu-ray Disc Java, which is the way they get interactive content on Blu-ray, but still playable on DVD players. They say it’s got lots of ‘exciting special features’, but I’m not sure what they could be.
The official site doesn’t have a site for the BD-J yet, but the game is ‘coming soon,’ according to the postard they sent out, and in fact simon already got sent a copy, so we might find out more about the features in the near future. I’m guessing it’s that long-rumored princess daphne nude code. It must be hard to be a girl and have to be rescued all the time. Proper question to girls: is it hard to be a girl and have to be rescued all the time? (note: the picture to the left is not from the Blu-ray version, which is probably much more awesome-er)
