Up until now the guys at New Zealand based Stickmen Studios’ have kept tight lipped about their WiiWare debut. As the game is nearing release they have finally spilled the beans – exclusively to your friendly neighbourhood Nintendo Life of course!

The Champions

Name: Jen Comu
Age: 25
Kingdom: Serengania
Magical Preference: Ice
Untitled
Gifted with Ice magic, Jen Comu was raised in Serengania as a Priestess of the Dragons. Tattooed with ritual dragon emblems Jen was raised to a life of discipline and dragon worship. As champion of Serengania, Jen was instructed to deliver control of all dragons to the Emperor. However, Jen believes that the dragons should be free to rule Nakiha. So, upon leaving the Dragon Temple in search of the Dragon Lord of Water, she ripped her formal robes and disguised herself as a beggar to escape her bonds as champion of Serengania. Now, as a wild and untamed dragon priestess following her own path, she intends to unite the Tomes to free the dragons!

Name: Elziath
Age: 450
Kingdom: Andera
Magical Preference: Earth
Untitled
300 years ago Elziath was foremost amongst the magic users who banished the dragons to the great ice wastes. Fearing that the dragon lords will destroy mankind or become the deadly servants of an evil power, the kingdom of Andera has resurrected this ancient champion to carry the Tome of Bone and banish the Dragon Lords and their Dragon kin back to the elements from which they were created. Elziath now seeks the Tomes of Scale, Talon and Fire. With them he can ensure that the Dragon Lords are returned to the elements and he can rest in peace.

Name: Muru Moko
Age: 29
Kingdom: Unknown
Magical Preference: Storm
Untitled
Muru Moko was named for the light and dark spirits within him, he is infamous for his ability to control mists, lightning and storms. It was whilst training at the Dragon Temples of Serengania that he first met the beautiful Dragon Priestess Jen Comu and although they wished to be together, the path of Muru Moko’s dreams took him far from her.
Muru Moko was consumed with the desire for power. He planned to release the Dragons and claim the title of “Dragon Master”, ruler of the dragons and now he champions his own cause; to unite the Dragon Tomes, gain dominion over all Dragon Kin and proclaim himself “Dragon Master” and Emperor of Serengania.

Name: Vourak
Age: Unknown
Kingdom: Daeroviar
Magical Preference: Fire
Untitled
Daeroviar decided that their champion must be prepared to do anything to win. Vourak, demon lord of an ancient order of knights, was summoned to champion Daroviar’s cause. Dragged from the realm of Vragalis, lord of destruction, Vouraks love of fire and ruin drives his every action. Should Vourak succeed in uniting the Dragon Tomes he will enslave the dragons and use them to burn, crush and destroy everything in his path, upholding his belief that only the strong survive.

Susinuo, Dragon Lord of Water

Untitled

The Dragon Lord of Water is the master of the oceans. Turquoise in colour, Susinuo has evolved a large blade like tail and webbed talons. Blessed with four wings and a long flexible body Susinuo is fast and agile.

Unga, Dragon Lord of Earth

Untitled

Formed from the boulders and roots of the world, the Dragon Lord of Earth is the biggest and strongest of all. However, all that weight means Unga is the slowest in the air, making this giant very stable and very tough. Slow to anger and hard to hurt, Unga is the easiest to control of all the Dragon Lords.

Pyrozian, Dragon Lord of Fire

Untitled

The fiercest of all the Dragon Lords, Pyrozian has the temper of fire; quick to flare into a rage, and the hardest to control. Born from burning lava this huge creature of the inferno has the deadliest flame and most unpredictable nature.

Kullwraith, Dragon Lord of Storm

Untitled

With wings of raw lightning, Kullwraith is fast and temperamental, switching from extreme calm to fury and rage in seconds. The power of the storm makes Kullwraith the fastest of all the Dragon Lords and the speed of lightning makes the Storm Lord a difficult enemy to fight.

Elziath looks good at 450, but Vourak's got way better pecs even though his age is unknown. Sounds like his love of fire and ruin keep him active at the Gym every morning. This looks fun for a WiiWare release, can't wait to try it.

It looks good and sounds promising, but the description makes it seem as though it's a bit short... unless there's some sort of elements to the game that are still being kept secret?

I Sent them an email asking if they had any news on the game a few weeks ago. Good to see such a load of information after hearing practically nothing of this for so long.

I like Panzer Dragoon so I might get this when released, does sound like (But not exactly look like Visually) quite a good game

Crazy Crushes@ news article
There finally is some news about this game!
I just now hope that this game has a gameplay that I like.

(@ = I was making a reference to the "Crazy Crush" microgame in WarioWare: Twisted!)

Not that interested. And the visuals look like an N64 game. Which isn't necessarily bad, just unimpressive.

Great to see this coming along well, looks great. I especially like the design for the Water Dragon.

Though, I still don't get it: Is it an on-rails shooter or not?

I really hope they fine tune it a little more, graphic-wise. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to it.

Always nice when something seems to come out of nowhere and be this ambitious. I hope they pull it off!

This could be cool, if they improve the graphics a bit, and make the story a bit longer. Looking forward to it.
