Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes is a role-playing game developed by the Nihon Falcom Corporation. It is the sixth game in the Dragon Slayer line of games, and the first in the Legend of Heroes series.

It was originally released in 1989 for the NEC PC-8801. Within the next few years, it would also be ported to the TurboGrafx-16. The PC Engine version was released in the United States for the TurboGrafx-16; it would be the only game in the series released in the US until the PSP remake of The Legend of Heroes IV: A Tear of Vermillion.

In 1995, a version of the game was broadcast exclusively for Japanese markets via the Super Famicom's Satellaview subunit under the name BS Dragon Slayer Eiyu Densetsu.

In 1998, a remake of The Legend of Heroes was bundled with a remake of Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes II, and released for both the PlayStation and the Sega Saturn.


Somewhere in the course of time lies Isrenasa, a world blessed of peace and tranquility. Surrounded by seas of sparkling cobalt, the lands of Isrenasa were once divided among five kingdoms: Farlalyne, Wyndgard, Norland, Sordis and Mortavia.

One night, the prosperous Kingdom of Farlalyne was invaded by savage monsters. Despite the overwhelming odds, Farlalyne managed to prevail at the cost of its soldiers and the king. With no leader to rule, Baron Drax stepped up in place of the young 6-year-old Prince Logan, who was too young to succeed the throne. For the young prince's safety, the prince was sent to the Town of Exile until his 16th birthday.

10 years later, the teenage Prince Logan was raised freely while working hard before his coronation in 2 months time. However, the Town of Exile was attacked by monsters just as Farlalyne was. Logan managed to escape and discovered the truth behind the monster attacks were all Baron Drax's doing to usurp the throne. On a journey with new companions to meet, Logan's adventure begins to reclaim back the throne.
