It was ported in 2004 to the PlayStation 2 as part of the Psikyo Shooting Collection Vol. 3:Sol Divide & Dragon Blaze compilation. The game was later also released on its own for the PS2 in Europe by 505 Games.  Gameplay Dragon Blaze plays like many typical 2D shooters by Psikyo, giving each character a normal shot, a charged shot, and a bomb. But each character (Quaid, Sonia, Ian, and Rob) also rides a dragon, which can be dismounted and be used as a weapon itself. The dismounted dragon initially acts as a piercing weapon, and then remains stationary shooting until the player calls it back using the same button. It can also be used to collect items.
