    The arcade classic context sensitive interactive cartoon has been in development for DS for years. Constantly disappearing and reappearing in random videos. Well, the DS version is dead. What we're going to get now instead is a port for DSiWare. Once i think about it, it's a nice idea. Dragon's Lair is not likely something I'd pick off a store shelf and pay $30 for. But for the cheap download price, I might. Anyways, details-

    - currently being tested for approval by Nintendo of America
    - Europe will soon be checking out the title as well
    - hoping for a Q4 release
    - no price point yet
    - all video/rooms are included
    - video/home versions included
    - Dragon's Lair DS version (worked on by United Coders) is pretty much dead

    No screens yet, but many of the videos you might have seen in the past will likely be what this version is based on.

    All this means is I'll never bother with it then. I refuse to buy a DSi. I'm sorry, but I will NOT pay for downloads and not have a physical disk/cart for my money.

    Digital Distribution is quite cheap for DSiware, Wiiware, and most games available on the PSN for the PS3/PSP except the minis, Sony jacked up the price on them. Physical carts are so 14 days ago, Digital copies are the future.
