There's only ever really been one reason to play Dragon's Lair: intuitive gesture-based controls.

Wait, no, we meant the princess Daphne. Controller-free Kinect controls are the new reason to play Dragon's Lair.

The classic arcade game has been ported more times than we care to count, but at least this version is adding something new. In addition to the new Kinect mode, you can also reportedly just watch every animated scene in the game play out.

That might actually be preferable, since playing the original is like navigating a DVD menu with the remote resting on one of those spin-art things you used to see at carnivals.

The game drops May 18, but if you just can't wait that long, we're sure you can find another system to play it on. Is this a classic you remember fondly? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
