Today D3Publisher announced it has shipped Dragon Blade: Wrath of Fire for the Wii. Built especially for Nintendo's latest console, Dragon Blade sends players on a quest to build the titular sword out of six lost pieces, each infused with the soul of a dragon. The game uses both the Wiimote and nunchuck to control the winged serpents' arms, wings, tail, and fire-breathing head.
"Gamers have been asking for fun, original games on the Wii and D3PA has answered their call with Dragon Blade," said Alison Quirion, VP of marketing, D3PA. "Dragon Blade stays true to its game design roots by focusing on the pure beat-em-up, arcade style action that gamers love while taking full advantage of the Wii controls to achieve as close to one-to-one motion as possible so players will truly experience the action like never before."
Dragon Blade: Wrath of Fire follows a story penned by author Richard A. Knaak, who has written tales of DragonLance, Warcraft, Diablo, and Age of Conan. For a recent update, check out our preview from the TGS 2007 show floor.
