Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (ダンジョンズ&ドラゴンズ ―ミスタラ英雄戦記―) is a 2013 video game developed by Iron Galaxy Studios and published by Capcom on the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam. It is a compilation of Capcom's two classic arcade games in the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom (1993) and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara (1996).



The game was released on August 22, 2013.[1] In Japan, the PlayStation 3 version received a retail release with exclusive bonus contents.[2]


Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara was positively received by critics. Review aggregating website Metacritic gave the PC version 80%,[3] the PlayStation 3 version 83%,[4] and the Xbox 360 version 77%.[5]

Reviewing the Xbox 360 version, Rob Kershaw at The Digital Fix gave the game 8/10 noting that while the graphics and music have become dated since the original arcade releases in the 1990s, the port was faithful to the source and the development team had added plenty of extras to increase the game's longevity.[6] Erik Kain of Forbes opined: "It plays a bit like Double Dragon, the old Ninja Turtles games, or any of the other classic NES/SEGA side-scrolling brawlers, so if you're a fan of the genre or of classic D&D, the $15 Capcom is charging for Chronicles is going to be well worth it."[7]
