Legend of Xanadu series
Group DescriptionLegend of Xanadu is a two-game spin-off series of Xanadu games (and subsequently the Dragon Slayer universe). The games have an overarching plot and feature a recurrent cast of characters, starting with the protagonist, a young knight named Areios. Gameplay-wise, these games are Ys-style action RPGs with "bumping" combat, distinguished by their unique approach towards character growth system (gradual HP increase, weapon leveling, etc.), large and complex overworld areas and dungeons, and side-view boss battles.
