THE BUZZ: Microsoft has announced the official release date of Dragon’s Lair for the Xbox Live Arcade.

The port is being developed by Digital Leisure and will hit the service May 18. The game will also include Kinect functionality such as photo sharing. You can check out more in the trailer below.

EGM’s TAKE: Dragon’s Lair has been remade too many times to even count. It’s a game that every one should at least try. If you’re looking for something to do with your Kinect now that you’re done dancing with C3PO, then this is one for you. If you’re a fan of the game, then the improved graphics should interest you, apart from that this classic doesn’t offer much different than the other remakes.

Will you be downloading the game? What do you think of the Kinect support addition? Let us know in the comments below.
