Excerpt: Dragon Warrior, known as Dragon Quest Doragon Kuesuto) in Japan, is the first role-playing video game (RPG) in the Dragon Quest media franchise. It was developed by Chunsoft for the Nintendo Entertainment System (known in Japan as the Family Computer or Famicom) and published by Enix in Japan in 1986. Dragon Warrior has been ported and remade for several video game platforms, including the MSX, NEC PC-9801, Sharp X68000, Super Nintendo Entertainment System (known in Japan as the Super Famicom), Game Boy Color, and mobile phones.
