After learning all about the upcoming Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova, Gamescom gave us some additional information about another kid-oriented game that looked at least as good as the other two and is changing the Nickelodeon license to DreamWorks. We’re talking Dragons: Legends of The Nine Realms, and here’s how Outright Games’ Loz Doyle defines its storyline:
“It’s set 1300 years after the previous series, so there are no people in this game at all. It’s all about the dragons. We have the narrator from the series, [er] does the narration for the game, it’s a really nice bit of storytelling just to tell you what’s going on because there’s no dialogue between the dragons because they can’t talk (laughs). But yeah it’s a shame you couldn’t play because it’s such a great game. From the moment you pick up the controller it feels good, that’s what it is.”
Then, when it feels good, controller in hand, how do you actually play the new Dragons game? Here’s more about genre, progression, skills, and gameplay in general:
“It’s an action-adventure, there’s quite a strong bias towards combat. So there’s a lot of depth to the combat, there’s a lot of different moves you can do, a lot of different dragons that have different weaknesses, and as you progress through the game go, unlock four different types of dragons, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses too, so you might get a dragon that has ice ability, and then you have a dragon that you fight that has an ice weakness, so you have to make sure that you switch to that dragon, also each dragon has a really big skill tree so as you go through the adventure you collect those crystals and then you spend the crystals to improve your dragons It is really really nice and there’s a lot of depth here and again you can play through the story, probably a six year old can play through the story, they’d be fine ng like they had a great time a lot of fight six year olds love. But if you want a real challenge, we have challenge modes in each area where we really add difficulty. So this is for the 10-11 year olds here who say, “This is a little easy”. When you upgrade your dragons, you have all your skills, that’s going to be a real challenge.”
Dragons: Legends of The Nine Realms will be released next week, September 23, for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox Series and One Family.
