1up has some new details about Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom in their latest preview. For instance, unlike previous titles in the Untold Legends series, potions are out. No stocking up and chugging the things like crazy to get through boss fights. Hopefully it'll be something that'll encourage strategy without making things too frustrating.
Also, item drops look to be cut way back. Producer Andy Sites says "the majority of items found should be worth equipping," though we can't help but be concerned about that. While we agree that bad guys popping out items like piñatas full of swords can be kind of silly, half the fun of hack-n-slashery is hoping that the next drop might be a Stealthy Asscleaver of Wailing or whatever. The less frequently drops happen, even if they're mostly crap, the less compelling it is to keep on murdering skeletons.
While nothing is set in stone yet, it turns out the game may be incorporating the new tilting feature of the PS3 controller as well. At the moment it's being considered for actions like dodging and/or use in environment puzzles.
Finally, following the lead of titles like Oblivion, Dark Kingdom will be incorporating downloadable content following its release. This should include extra ending chapters for each of the game's characters, new characters in addition to the three the game will be released with, and new arenas and versus modes.
