Dragon's Lair heading to DSiWare?

USK posting suggests as much.

Super-old laserdisc adventure Dragon's Lair may be about to make a long-overdue appearance on DS, according to details on the German ratings board website.

Curiously, the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle site lists the game for DSi, suggesting it might be heading to DSiWare and not retail. (Thanks GamerBytes.)

It's not the first we've heard of Dragon's Lair for DS, incidentally - it was originally announced in mid-2007 for release later that year, while an equally non-existent PSP version was mooted a few months later.

The original Dragon's Lair was a mixture of at-the-time-amazing animated sequences and intermittent player actions, and is considered by most to be the granddaddy of quick-time events.

Not that it's really stood the test of time. Check out our creaky Dragon's Lair 3D: Special Edition review to see how a relatively recent revamp ended up.
