Back in its heyday, the Sega Saturn had a reasonable amount of popularity in the U.S., although not enough to overcome the powerful Sony PlayStation. That said, the system actually had a bigger following in Japan, and, as a result, saw more releases than we got here in the States.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara brings reworkings of two of Capcoms classic arcade hits - Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara together in one definitive digital package.
Just as in the arcades, up to four players will select their character class before doing battle against the mythical beasts from the Dungeons and Dragons universe with a mix of melee, range and magic attacks.

<p>For players that like to have their cake and eat it too, we have the Cleric. This well-rounded class combines brute strength with powerful magic, making him a popular choice for the indecisive and beginners alike. The Cleric’s primary weapon, a mace, can be used to bludgeon enemies into a dizzy state, while clever spells like “Sticks to Snakes” even the odds by summoning slithery allies out of ordinary twigs!</p>

<p>When it comes to high fantasy, some character classes have vague names like “Elf” that’ll have you wondering at first what they actually do. Some elves craft presents, others bake cookies. Others, still, provide cyber enhancements to Zero in <i>Mega Man Zero</i>.</p>
<p>Well, Fighters don’t have that problem. Fighters <i>fight, </i>and there ain’t no ambiguity about it. If you’re looking for fast action, this is the class for you. Fighters wield a longsword and a short temper, making them a choice class for those looking to get out some quick aggression.</p>
<p><iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/dTUkGje-Cus" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p>
<p>The trade-off is that they are completely unable to use magic spells, and must rely solely on their fighting prowess. Still, their skill with the longsword gives them some of the longest-ranged melee of all of the character classes, and Fighters will enjoy a healthy balance between physical strength and dexterity. Additionally, Fighters are capable of wielding a variety of disposable melee weapons found throughout both games. In <i>Shadow Over Mystara, </i>they can even dual-wield swords if you find a second one on the battlefield.</p>
<p>With relatively safe, quick, and powerful melee attacks, Fighters could safely be dubbed the “no nonsense” class—a great starting class for beginners!</p>

<p>Dwarves! These old powerhouses are as reliable as they are compact, with high hit points, constitution, and strength. Wielding a hand ax and shield, a Dwarf will dish out the thrashings with high efficiency and minimal nonsense. And since he’s so sturdy, the Dwarf makes a fine choice for the D&D beginner. As an added bonus, Dwarves can bust up opened treasure chests to pillage even more money out of them.<br /><p>Check out the Dwarf in action in the following trailer.<br /><br />

<p>It’s the Thief. A quick look at our handy-dandy, in-game Character Visualizer (one of the new features) reveals that the Thief is Capcom Unity's most-played character class in the collection. Maybe that’s because she’s an irresistible blend of speed, utility, and blowing stuff up. <br /><br />Her primary skin (each class has two skins in <strong><em>Shadow over Mystara)</em></strong>, named “Moriah” by default, may be a not-so-subtle reference to a certain bizarre adventure, but the Thief performs a number of unique and incredibly helpful functions for her party.</p>
<p>First, a Thief can open any treasure chest without using a key, thanks to her lockpicking skills. Even more impressive, she can detect when a treasure chest is rigged with a trap, and will even tell you what the trap is, via onscreen text. If you’re on a loot run, this is infinitely useful. <br /><br />On top of all that, the Thief can actually steal items from many of the enemies in the game, ranging from money and items to rare drops that can be used to craft powerful equipment. All she has to do is ram into the enemy.</p>
