TRIVIA

Dragon Saber was released in December 1990 in Japan.

As its aforementioned full title suggests, it's the sequel to Dragon Spirit, which was released 3 years earlier. The game's title was abbreviated by Namco as 'DO' to separate it from Dragon Spirit's abbreviation, 'DS'.

This game is known outside Japan as just "Dragon Saber" (without the subtitle).
