How To Train Your Dragon (Wii/PS3/X360)

In the How To Train Your Dragon video game, based on the 3-D animated feature film from DreamWorks Animation, players are the ultimate dragon hero, launched into an epic quest to train the world’s fiercest creatures.  As gamers explore dynamic environments on and around the Island of Berk, they’ll customize their very own dragons with over 100,000 possible combinations.  Along the way, gamers will collect valuable upgrades for speed, strength and fire, giving them powerful tools to battle for Viking victory.

”The How To Train Your Dragon video game allows kids to live the fantasy of creating their very own dragons and engaging in epic battles against other fire breathing foes,” said Rob Kostich, head of marketing for licensed properties, Activision Publishing, Inc.  “Whether they are playing on their own or against family and friends, kids will have a blast in this high energy epic adventure.”

In support of the game’s launch, Activision is hosting a sweepstakes on its website, giving families a chance to win a NDS or Wii  and a copy of the How To Train Your Dragon video game.  To enter, consumers can log onto the game’s website, or the movie website. Winners will be chosen through random drawings that will take place daily starting on March 19 through April 7, 2010. 

The game is available now for the Xbox 360, Wii and the PS3 for a suggested retail price of $49.99 each; and N DS for the suggested retail price of $29.99.  The console versions are rated "E10+" (Fantasy Violence) and DS is rated "E10+" (Mild Fantasy Violence) by the ESRB.
