Video Game: Dragon Valor
Dragonslaying for generations to come.

Dragon Valor is an Action Adventure game for Playstation by Namco.

Dragon Valor is a wielder of magic sword, who's job is to rid the world from dragons. The game's main selling point was that there were several generations of these Dragon Valors, and the player's choices would lead to branching paths with different playable characters.
