D3Publisher of America has announced its first Wii exclusive title, Dragon Blade: Wrath of Fire
, a 3rd person action adventure based on an original story by DragonLance author Richard A. Knaak, where players "unleash the magical powers of a fierce dragon."
D3 says players will utilize an "intuitively designed, two-handed Wii control scheme and use both arms simultaneously to emulate the dragon’s arms, wings, tail, fire and more" over the course of the adventure.
The world of Dragon Blade
, in development by Japan based studio Land Ho, is said to be made up of six worlds and 20 unique environments in which players will "battle colossal enemies and embark on quests to upgrade their weapons and make them even more powerful over time."
Said D3PA VP and COO Yoji Takenaka, “Dragon Blade
is one the few hack ‘n slash games that will be available on the Wii this fall and the development team, Land Ho, has done a great job to fully utilize the Wii controls so players will experience parallel movement between themselves and the game avatar like never before. With its arcade style pick-up and play gameplay, we expect Dragon Blade
to appeal to gamers of all ages.”
