Dragon Slayer 3 is also known as Romancia.
This is what I used to think too, but in fact Dragon Slayer 3 is a game AFAIK not released on MSX: Xanadu Scenario 2.

That means that Romancia - DS Jr. is just that, it has no number.

To complete the list:
DS 7 - Lord Monarch
DS 8 - Legend of Xanadu

Question: DS5 - Sorcerian is from Takeru and licensed by falcom ?
Sorcerian is from Falcom, distributed by Takeru.

And about Dragon Slayer 1, Falcom released this game on Gameboy under their own brand, so apparently they bought the game and name from Square after Square released the first version.

So MSX has no DS3 but on which system dit it get out ?


To complete the list:
DS 7 - Lord Monarch
DS 8 - Legend of Xanadu

These games are from which platform?

Actually after Googling some japanese sites some more, I'm confused again. Most of them do seem to list Dragon Slayer Jr - Dragon Slayer III - Romancia as the same game.
I think my previous conclusion that Xanadu Scenario II was in fact DS 3 was a bit premature, as I see only one site listing it as such... Ofcourse sometimes only one site is right, and the rest is just repeating false facts like sheep Wink

However, there is a Xanadu Scenario II "the resurrection of the dragon" released for PC88, PC98, X1, FM7.

I guess Xanadu Scenario II is similar to Dragon Slayer VI, which has Legend of Heroes 1 and 2, after which the Legend of Heroes series seems to have split off in its own direction.

To complete the list:
DS 7 - Lord Monarch
DS 8 - Legend of Xanadu
These games are from which platform?

Lord Monarch: PC-98, FM-TOWNS, SFC, MD, Windows
Legend of Xanadu: PC-Engine

Apparently Legend of Xanadu II is also another game under the Dragon Slayer VIII name.

Falcom does know how to make things confusing, don't they? Tongue

Xanadu Senario II was actually a extention like to Xanadu. Since Falcom spent a decent time in developing Xanadu, they had a quite a flexible system. So they decide to use the same system with new map/monster for it. So Senario II required Xanadu(1) to play and actually booted off it too.

Initially Falcom had a in house rule to give Dragon Slayer naming for ones that author "Yoshio Kiya" was involved but this changed eventually after he left Falcom. (So PCE Xanadu's are more like a spin off and YS series was never DS because of the different staff made them, but existed in similar time period.)

To make things even more confusing, Falcom has continued the thread 'The Legend of Heroes', started by what we know as Dragonslayer VI (subtitled The Legend of Heroes'). The last game I know of in this series, released last spring, is called Legend of Heroes 6 - Sora no Kiseki. See www.falcom.co.jp for more info...

AFAIK the correct order would be:

Dragonslayer (c) developed by Square, bought off by Falcom
Dragonslayer 2 aka Xanadu
-------spin-off: Xanadu, scenario 2
Dragonslayer 3 aka Romancia aka Dragonslayer Jr.
Dragonslayer 4, Drasle Family
Dragonslayer 5, Sorcerian
Dragonslayer 6, Legend of Heroes
-------spin-off: Legend of Heroes series
Dragonslayer 7, Lord Monarch
Dragonslayer 8, Legend of Xanadu

I have Dragonslayer III, IV and VI myself...they weren't hard to find really.
