Dragon's Lair: Xbox 360 update of FMV trailblazer (probably) outed by PEGI

A PEGI rating's appeared for an upcoming Xbox 360 game called Dragon's Lair, marking the game with a 7+ and noting the title's “Violence in a cartoon, slapstick or childlike setting.” Sure, “Dragon's Lair” is pretty generic as titles go, but if you're talking cartoon fantasy violence, surely you're talking about this?

As noted by VG24/7, the game's publisher, Microsoft Ireland Research, specializes mainly in XBLA titles – which would seem an obvious fit for the title. After all, while we weren't so sure about paying $50 for the title (see our Dragon's Lair HD review from a couple years back), Dragon's Lair remains a one-of-a-kind curio worth exploring by historically-minded gamers. We gave the game the #1 spot on our list of The Top 7... Least interactive games; hopefully soon you'll be able to tell us whether or not that's actually a compliment...

    On an aside, is anyone else bothered by the fact that first-release trailers tend to have the PEGI rating? If the main consumers are in Asia and North America, why does it happen that ESRB gets their mitts on these things so much later?

    Didn't they port this game to enough systems already?

    No. Never can port it enough. The game is amazing. I honestly own 7 copies of it.

    Dragon's lair could be a fun party game if they make it Kinect enabled.
