'Dragon Hunters' (NDS) Announced

by Rainier on June 28, 2007 @ 5:27 a.m. PDT

Dragon Hunters is a fun platform action game, based on the stunning world featured in the successful Dragon Hunters TV series and the animated movie, combining platform gameplay with many challenging puzzle and action elements. Dragon Hunters follows the adventures of two hunters for hire through a world which is a myriad of small islands, floating about in space and interconnected by bridge constructions, that is terrorized by a widely varying menace of monsters known collectively as dragons.

“We really enjoy starting this ambitious collaboration with Playlogic. The Universe of Dragon Hunters has a high creative value. Moreover the hunting stories, the humour and the variety of the Dragons allow for the creation of great videogames. We are sure that the Playlogic team will reach this goal!” states Philippe Delarue, CEO of Futurikon.

“We are very pleased to have entered into an agreement with Futurikon,” comments Stefan Layer, Playlogic’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “This cooperation enables Playlogic to exploit the Dragon Hunters universe on various platforms. Playlogic will be able to use material from the Dragon Hunters CGI movie out in cinemas in 2008, as well as from two seasons of the Dragon Hunters TV series.”

Playlogic plans to publish the game version of Dragon Hunters on Nintendo DS in line with the movie release, scheduled for Q1 of 2008.

"The Dragon Hunters universe is a perfect match for a video game,” states Dominique Morel, CTO of Playlogic. This concept is not only graphically very creative and original; Dragon Hunters is also a superb opportunity to create rich new interactive content, with hilariously fun game play. Playlogic and the developers already working with us on this game are totally enthusiastic about its potential. Hunting will never have been more fun!"

The universe of Dragon Hunters has been created by Arthur Qwak, Guillaume Ivernel and Valérie Hadida. An animated TV series (the first 26 episode season is on air and a second season of 26 episodes is currently in production) and a CGI feature film are produced by the French company Futurikon. It follows the adventures of two hunters for hire through a world which is a myriad of small islands, floating about in space and interconnected by bridge constructions, that is terrorized by a widely varying menace of monsters known collectively as dragons.
