Digital Leisure has announced the development of Dragon’s Lair for Nintendo DS. The game sees players take on the role of a valiant knight on a quest to rescue the fair princess from the clutches of an evil dragon.

The DS version will include local and online play, complete with record tracking, plus the Super Puzzle Fighter clone, Puzzle Kombat.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat is currently scheduled for release in the US in November, but we’re still waiting to hear from Midway regarding a European release.

“Threshold had to wait till around early 2000 for the contract with New Line Cinema to end (Threshold blames New Line for the disappointing Annihilation, talking about forced release dates, limited budget, no understanding of anything, etc.)
