'Legend of the Dragon' (NDS/PSP/PS2) - 20 New Screens

Legend of the Dragon is a 3rd person action game with RPG components, featuring fantastic martial arts movements from the TV series. As in the series, players will find Twelve Signs of the Ancient Chinese Zodiac, each with its own temple, and each temple with its own guardian.

The TV series has been created by Rick Ungar, who is credited with many global successes such as the immensely popular "X-Men: Evolution" and the classic "Spider-Man". Already placed with leading broadcasters worldwide, the 26 action packed episodes are currently in production, and are sure to be a success with young boys fascinated by the current trend of Japanese inspired animations and martial arts.

At the core Legend of the Dragon is the battle to maintain the universal balance between good and evil, Yin and Yang. This beat-em-up adventure game takes place in China and is centred on the twins Ang and Ling whose sibling bond is tested when Ang is chosen to be the next Golden Dragon destined to defend the temple from the evil Zodiac Master.


In her quest for redemption Ling is lured to join the Zodiac Master on his mission to destroy the 12 lost temples of the ancient Chinese Zodiacs and their Guardian Warriors. In the battle between darkness and light both heroes and villains have magic wristbands that can transform them into half man half beast with the likeness and skills of the zodiac creature they represent. The game combines thrilling fighting sequences with a compelling story line all wrapped up in outstanding animations.

The guardians undergo a physical change when they are forced to defend their temple, a metamorphosis that reflects the skills and likeness of the zodiac creature they represent. The main goal is to ruin the plans of the Zodiac Master, who is attempting to attain these twelve astonishing ancient powers to become virtually unstoppable.

Legend of the Dragon is being developed by Freak Frog studios, a development team based in Barcelona that works exclusively for On Games.
