Crimson Dragon Coming September 12th on Windows Phone


It looks like “Crimson Dragon Side Story” will be this coming week’s new Xbox LIVE game for Windows Phone, and it sounds pretty nice.  It’s a side-scrolling shooter where you control a dragon and target enemies using touch controls.  One especially interesting aspect of the game is its location-based features.  You can unlock special skills for your dragon by travelling in the real world with you GPS location services turned on.  An Xbox Kinect version of Crimson Dragon is also in the works though its original June release date was mysteriously cancelled and there doesn’t seem to be any communication with the Windows Phone companion game.

  • In Story Mode, take control of Sana and her dragon White Reaver as they are sent on a special mission revolving around the mysterious pandemic called “Crimonscale Disease”.
  • In Mission Mode, the player faces a variety of situations such as high difficulty stages and continuous boss battles, competing for high scores while collecting powerful skills.
  • Over 170 Skills are available to be unlocked in-game, and the unlocked skills can be “awakened” in the dragon by using “jewels”. The more powerful the skill, the more jewels are required for awakening.
  • Jewels are available not only through the gameplay, but also can be obtained using a location service based on calculation of the distance a player traveled per day in the real world. Additional jewels are also available for purchase. Enter a world dominated by dragons
