The Game Boy is getting a brand-new RPG nearly 32 years after the system first launched. Dragonborne from Spacebot Interactive releases January 2021 on a Game Boy cartridge compatible with all Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance systems.
Dragonborne is an 8-bit, turn-based RPG. Players take control of Kris, a young person scouring the land of Argon for traces of Kurtis, their missing father who also happens to be the world’s greatest dragon slayer.
It’s not just a family matter, though. The dragon is about to wake up again.
It might seem like a straightforward retro RPG on the surface, but Dragonborne has a lot going on underneath. It features multiple endings, equipment upgrades, collectibles, and plenty of puzzles for Kris to solve over the course of its 6-7 hour playtime.
Dragonborne is expected to ship in January 2021. Pre-orders for physical cartridges are live now through November 30 and cost $54.73. This release is just the latest in a number of games releasing for retro consoles.
