A new game of DreamWorks Animation’s ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ franchise has just been announced.
The game is expected to launch in February 2019 in both Europe and North America on Nintendo Switch, aiming to coincide with the release of the new movie ‘How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.’
The game comes from Outright Games and is being published by Universal Games.
DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of New Riders is a brand-new tale in the How to Train Your Dragon universe. It centers on Scribbler and Patch, who must stop the evil Eir from controlling dragons for her own nefarious purposes.
“The first feature film How to Train Your Dragon debuted eight years ago and has since sparked a beloved franchise that has captivated audiences around the world, inspiring additional films, television shows and more. DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of New Riders gives us a wonderful opportunity to be a part of Dragons history by partnering with Universal to create an original story introducing two new, very special characters,” said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games.
Here are some of the key features you can expect from the game:
- A NEW, AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE: Help Scribbler recover lost memories and forge a friendship with Patch, his unique hybrid dragon
- EPIC BATTLES: Unlock powerful abilities and take on fearsome foes
- EXPLORE VAST NEW LOCATIONS: Fly to familiar locations, as well as new locations, including Havenholme, Valka’s Mountain and Blood Briar Island
- SOLVE PUZZLES: Swap between Scribbler and his dragon Patch to conquer obstacles
DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of New Riders will come to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
