Dragon Slayer universe

Group Description

Dragon Slayer franchise by Nihon Falcom encompasses a diverse array of games that share titles, gameplay elements, setting, and stylistic traits. The original Dragon Slayer (1984) is widely recognized as one of the progenitors of the action RPG genre. Subsequent installments expanded its ideas or modified them, reducing or increasing RPG elements, and sometimes even dropping action-based gameplay in favor of turn-based combat (in the Legend of Heroes spin-offs). Other notable sub-groups within the universe are Xanadu and Sorcerian games.
