How to Train Your Dragon Title Headed to Switch

It stands to reason that since we’re getting a new How to Train Your Dragon film in the near future, there’d be a new game on the way… and this time around, it’s heading to the Switch. Outright Games has announced that DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of New Riders will introduce players to a new storyline in the world of the Dragons series, which is a TV show based on the How to Train Your Dragon film from 2010.

Outright Games CEO Terry Malham had this to say about the upcoming title:

“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. We look forward to unveiling more details soon!”

Players will join Scribbler and Patch, a new duo, in a battle to save dragons and bring down Eir, a nasty foe set on bending dragons to her control. While there’s yet to be any footage of the game, some screenshots and features have been released:

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”

Game launch is slated for February 2019, to parallel the film release window of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
