Have a Date with Daphne in Dragon's Lair Tomorrow

By Rebecca Smith,
Dragon's Lair was originally released in arcades in 1983. That launch date is celebrated in both the Xbox Live Arcade and Windows 8 versions of the game with a time-specific achievement tomorrow, June 19th.

If you want a proper time stamp on your Date with Daphne achievement, the quickest way of getting the achievement is to boot up the game on Xbox 360, Xbox One through backward compatibility, or Windows 8 and start a new game. The achievement only works during GMT hours, so make sure you plan accordingly as it will not unlock according to your time zone.

Of course, if you don't want to wait until tomorrow, you can earn the achievement offline on your Xbox 360 by changing its date and time. This will not work on Xbox One. If you're a Windows 8 player, you can do the same thing, although you will then get a time stamp for the day you unlocked the achievement.

This achievement does not appear in the recently released Dragon's Lair Trilogy on Xbox One, so if this is the only version of the game you own, you don't have to worry about playing the game tomorrow.
