A surprise listing in the European eShop has revealed that Dragon’s Lair Trilogy will be coming to Nintendo Switch on January 17th. The three games are Dragon’s Lair, Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp, and Space Ace, making the “trilogy” part of the title a little odd.

For those who haven’t played any of these games, they are essentially a series of quicktime events that you play through as an excuse to watch gorgeous Don Bluth animation. A trailer for the release has been shared online, as well as a description of the games:

In Dragon’s Lair, you play the heroic Dirk the Daring, a valiant knight on a quest to rescue the fair princess from the clutches of an evil dragon!

Space Ace will have you take control of Ace – Defender of justice, truth, and the planet Earth! Ace is being attacked by the evil Commander Borf. Struggle with Dexter to regain his manhood. Destroy the Infanto-Ray. Defeat the evil Borf! Be valiant space warrior, the fate of Earth is in your hands!

Dragon’s Lair II: Time Warp once again has you leading Dirk on a perilous quest! Spirited away to a wrinkle in time by the evil wizard Mordroc, Princess Daphne will be forced to marry the wicked Mordroc unless Dirk can save her. Once the casket of doom has opened, Mordroc will place the death ring upon Daphne’s finger in marriage, and she will be lost forever in the Time Warp.


The game is being published by Digital Leisure, and you can expect it to hit the eShop in just one week.
