Just when I have been thinking about how we have not seen much of the fantasy elements that will be present in Brave (outside of the monstrous bear Mor’du and the blue will-o’-the-wisp lights that hover around the forest), Disney Interactive has released some screenshots from the upcoming video game that give us glimpses into the fantastical side of the film. Take a look at the new screenshots after the jump! Just be aware that these images may very well contain spoilers for the film (you won’t know what is happening, but it displays some previously unseen forces). You can rest assured, though, that there will be some sick action sequences in the film.
Inspired by “Brave,” the upcoming Disney•Pixar animated fantasy adventure movie, the video game invites players to run, jump and battle their way through the rugged landscape of mythical and mysterious Scotland. By using their wits and bravery, gamers will also be able to wield a sword and bow to defeat fierce enemies, break a magical curse and save a kingdom. The video game will release summer 2012, in conjunction with the film.
A third person action-adventure, “Brave: The Video Game” expands the tale beyond the movie’s storyline. Gamers can play as Merida, an expert archer and heroine, and in the console versions, players can also play as other entertaining characters from the film. In addition, they will be able to go on quests through a magical world and solve puzzles to uncover secrets.
Below is a gallery of screenshots from the various versions of the game. The first five images are from the XBox 360 and PS3 titles, followed by the five images for the Wii. The last 20 images are for the Nintendo DS version. Check out the images here:
According to Amazon, the game is on track for release on June 19. You can pre-order the game here.
