How to Train Your Dragon: Developer Q&A

How to Train Your Dragon isn’t just a book or a movie – it’s also a cool video game! We got to chat exclusively with one of the game’s producers, Lalie Fisher from Activision about the characters, goals and features of the game!


What character or characters do players get to be in the game?
In Story mode the players can choose to play as Hiccup or Astrid as the Viking character. In arcade mode, the players can play as any of the notable kid characters from the film (Hiccup, Astrid, Snotlout, Fishlegs, Ruffnut, Tuffnut).


What is the main goal of the game?
In story mode the goal is to become the ultimate dragon trainer and win the Thorsday Thursday tournament. This is done by creating a stable of dragons, training them and then battling with them in the tournament.


What kind of environment does the game take place in?
The game takes place on the Island of Berk. There are four distinct areas that the players will adventure to. The village and docks, the training peak, the wild zone and the fighting arena.


When the players are in Arcade mode there are a variety of arenas to choose from to battle in.


What customization features are available to players in the game?
The dragons are customizable in many ways. The player can earn points through training and then use those points to upgrade their Dragon’s characteristics like speed, power, strength and fire.


Additionally, the Dragons appearance can be changed. Unlocked through gameplay each dragon has multiple selections for certain areas of their bodies like, head, horns, spine, tail, wings, etc. that changed by the player.


We also allow creative coloring of the dragons giving the player the ability to change the color of the scales, skin and markings.


How does the game relate to the movie?
The game has all of the characters from the film and picks up where the film story leaves off.


What platforms is the game be available for?
360, PS3, Wii and NDS.


When will the game be available in stores?
The game is available on March 23rd 2010.

(Not that I completely support it, but I'm looking into the possibility.)   Yeah, Foxy gets worried about Mike, so he rushes over to the office to check on him, but since he has a malfunctioning voice box, he screams and that gives Mike a heart attack. I thought about that, and it seems kind of true, but it may also be Foxy fangirl logic. Just guessing based on the amount of posts lately that say "BE MEH SENPAI FOXEH!!!".
