In LEGO Knights' Kingdom, players will control the hero knights Jayko, Danju, Santis and Rascus on their quest to find the Heart of the magical Shield of Ages. In the classic story of Good versus Evil, the band of heroes battle against the evil Dark Knight Vladek, to save the fate of the Kingdom of Morcia. The game will feature nine unique quests, each containing puzzles and mini-quests that reinforce the hero knights' code of honor: Respect, Loyalty, Honesty and Bravery. In addition, players will compete in head-to-head battles and jousts in the Tournament Arena Mode and timed battles for survival in the Last Man Standing Mode. Using the Game Boy Advance Link Cable, two players will be able to compete against each other in head-to-head battles and jousts. With comic book cut scenes, innovative game controls and exciting multiplayer features, LEGO Knights' Kingdom will offer handheld gamers an experience that redefines the GBA action genre.
