Back of Box - NES (US):
    Dragon Warrior... the epic beginning of a new era in video games.

    Mere finger speed and sweat are no match for the challenges of this game. You will be required to use deductive reasoning, not a quick sword to defeat your enemies.

    All is darkness. The Dragon-lord has captured the Princess and stolen Erdrick's powerful ball of light.

    You are Erdrick's heir. To you has fallen the most dangerous task - to rescue the King's daughter and recover the mystic ball of light.

    Your mission is deadly, but it is your fate. Prophets have long foretold your coming.

    Three keepers await your journey, each ready to aid you with a mystic item of great power.

    Gather the three objects. Scribes will record your deeds. Use cunning and wisdom to choose your commands. Gain experience, weapons and armor as you battle your way through the world. Rest if you must.

    Search out the Dragon-lord's lair and face your destiny. In this role-playing adventure you are the Dragon Warrior!

    Battery back-up eliminates need for passwords.
