Posted on July 13, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Wales Interactive has announced Mia and the Dragon Princess, a new interactive movie for Switch. A release is planned for Q4 2022.
The off-beat action-adventure stars Mia, a plucky barmaid whose life is thrown into chaos when a mysterious woman turns up at her workplace. This person is on the run from a group of violent thugs and can’t speak English.
The cast includes Paul McGann (Doctor Who, Alien 3, Withnail & I), Brian McCardie (Time, Rob Roy), and MyAnna Buring (The Witcher, Ripper Street), Dita Tantang and Noa Bleeker. Daz Black (DazGames) will have a guest appearance.
Fight coordinator Marcus Shakesheff (WonderWoman, Hanna, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Pennyworth, Guardians of the Galaxy, Game of Thrones) is designing the action for Mia and the Dragon Princess. Taekwondo instructor and content creator Aaron Gassor, otherwise known as Ginger Ninja Trickster, is providing fight stunts.
Mia and the Dragon Princess will have real time Attribute Tracking that evolves based on your choices and influences the story. There’ll also be multi-optional storytelling with ten different outcomes.
Here’s the official story synopsis:
Mia dreams of adventure, but her feeling of responsibility to her workmates – who have become her surrogate family – keeps her working at a job she’s bored of, living a life she didn’t want. When a mysterious woman (Marshanda) turns up scared and on the run, Mia’s decision to take her under her wing and try to discover her identity leads her down a path of intrigue, mystery and danger.
When a group of thugs, led by the quietly terrifying, Walsh (Paul McGann) turns up at the bar, Mia and her co-workers are taken hostage along with a group of customers. When Mia’s boss, Matthew (Brian McCardie) is injured, the stakes are raised and the struggle becomes real when Mia and the group end up on the run and battling for their lives.
The viewer’s choices will guide Mia through the adventure and will determine her fate, as well as that of the whole group. Throughout the game, your interactions could increase your knowledge around the identity of the mysterious woman, but the way Mia deals with the rest of the group will also have an impact, so each choice needs to be carefully considered.
Mia and the Dragon Princess is the first of three interactive movie announcements Wales Interactive is planning, so news about the other projects should follow soon.
