Dragon's Lair Blu-ray
*Classic Arcade Game DragonÂs Lair to be first BD-J Blu-ray Disc* Release*
GORMLEY, Ontario, Canada Â March 26, 2007 Â A milestone in interactive
High Definition technology has today been realized with the first ever
interactive BD-J title to be released for Blu-ray* Disc. And as HD
playback software and Blu-ray drives are now becoming standard PC
options, DragonÂs Lair Blu-ray promises stunning images on your PC.
An instant hit in its 1983 arcade debut, DragonÂs Lair has now been
digitally restored and enhanced with an all-new 5.1 surround sound mix.
Digital Leisure, with authoring partner Infinite HD, transferred the
video directly from the original film and painstakingly cleaned each
frame by hand, creating a truly vibrant image.
The game was programmed in the Blu-ray Java environment, or BD-J, an
advanced format that allows users to enjoy a fully arcade-authentic
experience. DragonÂs Lair is the first title to use this technology,
setting the standard for future interactive implementations of BD-J.
ÂIÂve seen the newly restored footage and it just looks amazingÂ says
Don Bluth, original creator of DragonÂs Lair. ÂIt looks even better than
I can remember. The visuals, the 5.1 surround sound audio, all I can
say is ÂWow!Â Now a whole new generation can enjoy DragonÂs Lair all
* Unlike most current high definition releases, all of the special
features on the disc were shot natively in 1080p at 24fps. These include
brand-new interviews with creators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Rick
Dyer, and for the first time a full length visual commentary of the game.*
* Digital Leisure plans to follow up DragonÂs Lair Blu-ray with the
release of Space Ace and Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp in the Blu-ray Java
format. DragonÂs Lair Blu-ray will be available April 9^th at many
software and movie retailers as well as online at www.digitalleisure.com
