Aside from the Final Fantasy VII spin off, Drag-On Dragoon, and its sequel Love Red, Ambivalence Black, too is added into the Ultimate Hits series.

The controversial games have caused quite a stir in the gaming community. The kill all action system provided a lot of excitement and flying on the dragon's back is exhilarating, however the plot elements are anything but sunny and cheerful.

The first game Drag-On Dragoon tells the tale of revenge of a prince from a small small country, the sacrifices he has made and the bitter ends he came to.

The second game takes place 18 years after the events of the original game and wrap up the loose ends that results from the past events. Aside from new heroes, and weapons, old characters such as the black dragon and the tragic villainess Mana showed up again as key characters.

Voiced by a star studded cast and a theme song Hitori by Nakajima Mika, Drag-On Dragoon and its sequel Love Red Ambivalence Black are available as Ultimate Hits versions and are sold at the same price of US$ 34.90 only.
