Dragon Warrior I & II is a Game Boy Color title consisting of remakes of both Dragon Warrior and Dragon Warrior II. It was developed and published by Enix, and was released in 1999 in Japan and in 2000 in North America. Dragon Warrior I & II is based on the Japan-exclusive Super Famicom compilation, Dragon Quest I + II, which features 16-bit remakes of both games. The game is on a black Game Boy Color cartridge, allowing for backward compatibility with original Game Boy units and even having unique Super Game Boy borders.
In 2001, following the success of Dragon Warrior I & II, Enix released a Game Boy Color remake of Dragon Warrior III.
