Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Interview

Sony Online Entertainment is best known for MMORPGs like the Everquest series but they have also released games for the PS2 and PSP consoles. This fall, the developer/publisher will released one of the first PS3 exclusive titles with the fantasy action-RPG Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom. FiringSquad got a chance to ask its senior producer Kevin O'Hara some questions about the game, which is an extension of two previous games for the PSP.
FiringSquad: First, how did the idea for Dark Kindgom come about?
Kevin O'Hara: Following the success of Untold Legends on PSP, we wanted to bring the franchise to the PlayStation 3. The team was anxious to take the proven elements of a classic hack and slash RPG and focus more on the action and tactics. Our designers started by making feature lists about what we thought made our previous PS2 titles Champions or Norrath and Return to Arms fun and what would take those to the next gen console. The storyline started to fall into place as we focused on the environments we wanted to show and the character types we wanted to play.

THE TRUTH6561d ago

why do you care if they look like E3 05 or not? I care about if they play great. Looks aren't everything. I find this game interesting and I hope it plays out to be a fun game.

The Real Deal6561d ago

Dat Killzone multiplayer. Dat LittleBigPlanet idea. Yes, please!

Godmars2904148d ago

White Knight Chronicles done right?

That is a compressive single player where you're fifth-wheel character isn't and actual fifth-wheel. Isn't both invisible and valueless to the plot.

Maybe Ninja Theory will pull their heads out their asses and make Heavenly Sword 2. FAILED at enslaved FAILED at Devil May Cry...when will they take the hint STICK WITH WHAT YOUR GOOD AT! Go back to your original and successful IP heavenly sword. People WANT IT!

Suikoden V, ahhh awesome game indeed

knifefight5276d ago

Agree. To me, Suikoden V is the best of the PS2 Suikos, with part 2 on the original PSX being the best of the series.

2006 for mewas all about Final Fantasy XII (in spite of the haters!), Suikoden V, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I found Assassin's Creed to be fun but at the same time repetitive.
It's definitely worth a rental but nothing more.

Dark Sector is fun but I'm still suck on a level and I don't know what to do. >:(

Dark Kingdom is ok not the best PS3 Exclusive in the world but still good.

Prey is so awesome. It's such an underrated game. (3D Realms rocks!)

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (Not the best in the franchise and besides I don't like the band Aerosmith.

Tomb Raider = Gay! (Uncharted is so much better now then Tomb Raider. Seriously.)

Star Trek Conquest (I'm not sure but I'll give it a try.)
