HTTYD2_WiiU_boxfronts

Today Dreamworks announced that publisher Little Orbit will be handling How to Train Your Dragon 2, a video game tie-in with this year’s How to Train Your Dragon 2, coming to theaters this summer. The game will be released in June to coincide with the release of the film. The developer will be Torus Games.

In the game, players will take control of a dragon rider alongside characters from the film, with the ability to choose from several different riders and dragons as the game takes you through dragon flight school on the Viking island of Berk. According to the head of DreamWorks Interactive Animation Chris Hewish, the team is happy to have Little Orbit developing a companion game for the release of the film.

“The action filled world of Dragons translates beautifully to the video game space. We are thrilled to be working with Little Orbit on creating a soaring, action-packed Dragon experience for young gamers.”

How to Train Your Dragon 2 will release on other platforms as well, including Xbox 360, 3DS, Wii, and PlayStation 3.

    I really hope the movie and the game are good. How to Train Your Dragon is one of my favorite movies of all time.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      I loved it as well. :)

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Seriously, that movie is my favorite movie ever. Let’s hope the game lives up to it.

      • Justin Carlson

        Thanks. I’m glad to know I’m not alone in my love for that movie.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          not alone at all!

      • Sol Ridgeway

        not only is the Movie that good, the TV Series and Specials are awesome as well.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          Seriously, it’s one of the few TV shows and TV specials that are actually good

    • abe

      The film will be great. The game. . not so much. Though if its dumb fun i’ll grab it

    • Capt. Smoker

      Love the series too, I have doubts about the game though, games based on films are rarely ever good, unless it’s spiderman 2 ^^

      • MysteryT

        Shrek 2 was also an amazing game! :D

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          Shrek 2 was actually the game that made me not like movie based games. Not sure why though. It was pretty fun from what I remember…

  • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

    I liked the first movie. I didn’t even know they were making another one. Anyone else find it weird that it’s coming to Wii as well?

    • BIG Franky

      not at all…. that there is their market…the most recent Skylanders as well as Disney Infinity both sold more units on the original Wii than the other platforms combined! crazy, huh?)…. which I think is part of the problem for Wii U…. Nintendo still hasn’t provided a compelling reason for families with a Wii to upgrade…

      • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

        Yeah, they should make companies stop making games for the Wii, and force people to buy a Wii U.

        • metalpants

          And, I kind of agree with this……

      • metalpants

        Well, at least this is good news to a degree. Whereas PS4/XO won’t be getting many of these (given what the owners of those systems expect out of their games), to have the Wii U’s name advertised with the other well-established systems in painfully mainstream games is good advertisement on its own. I say the more of these we get, the better for Nintendo business-wise. That way families that own Wiis will eventually see that it can be a smooth transition to the newer Nintendo console when they see familiar games on it.

      • DC777

        Interesting, over a million each on Wii. Time to pull that thing off the shelves.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        well keep in mind, the install base for Wii is huge, and as for skylanders, most people had the first two on the Wii, so they just followed trend. Wii U did pretty well in sales for both SWAP force and Giants, I believe

  • FIreproof_actual

    2 words…System. Seller.

    • DekuStickFajitaEater

      Oh, the sarcasm

    • val berger

      gonna turn the wiiU into the moneyrpinter everyone keeps preaching about. WiiU’s gonna skyrocket (to throw in more drone-keywords ;D )

  • Jason Lee

    Let’s hope this one is like Monster Hunter 3U!

  • Michael Collins

    I can think of of one Weezer song title and one Ben Folds Five song title to sum up my thoughts on this post. Why Bother and Battle of Who Could Care less!

      Knack?

      • Daniel Gonzalez
        • Deadpool U

          No you mean Knack.

          • Daniel Gonzalez
          • Deadpool U

            Here’s a picture of Knack since you obviously can’t find one.

            http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/03/Knack.jpg

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Here’s some games worse than Knack that made home on the Wii U. You don’t have to thank me.;P

            http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-X_ep887–4c/UGO5KEkdNII/AAAAAAAADRg/XOnZMF1aEYg/s640/Wii-U-shovelware-boxart.jpg

          • C4

            That’s shovelware.

            Knack maybe is bad as a platformer, but it is no platformer it’s kind of a family friendly God of War type of game :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sony needs to just stick to teens and adults. Knack was an okay game, but those calling it shovelware, need to research a little better. What I showed above, is the perfect definition. ;P

          • BIG Franky

            agree with some of what you’re saying… BUT, Knack in no way was even an “okay” game… we traded it in within a week of purchase… my kids literally laughed at it. its awful. but definitely NOT shovelware though…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well, we all had our experiences and see things differently there. It’s certainly not shovelware. No doubts there.

          • jrob23

            Cabelas and Wipeout also on Xbox and PS3 genius. God you are bad at this

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m a genius? Well I knew this already, but not a problem reminding me. Thanks buddy. :)

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Don’t you know it is only shovelware if it is released on the Wii U. Never mind that many of these games are released across many platforms including XBOX, Playstation, and PC.

          • David Trail

            That isn’t shovel ware dude.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That was the point, to point out poor logic. Nor is Knack, considering the game wasn’t made on a short budget. If you wanna use metacritic scores as proving how bad games are, then by that definition alone, Sonic Lost World was a bad game, or any game below 80 for that matter. Reading a lot of your posts, that’s the logic you bring to the table. ;P

          • David Trail

            Sonic is good. It’s just an opinion ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            So is the opinion of Knack. Thank you for proving my point. ;)

          • David Trail

            I don’t like Knack though. Point invalid lol!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            The point wasn’t whether or not you liked it, it was that all review scores are based on opinions. Point quite valid. Nice try, though Davey boy.

          • David Trail

            More people agree that Knack is worse than Sonic ; )

            Nice try Daniel…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Unless you’ve met and talked to every gamer in the world, your argument doesn’t have much relevance.

            Nice try Davey boy. ;)

        • David Trail

          Wii Party U > Knack

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            MGS V:GS > Wii Party U

            Your language is easy to learn. ;P

          • David Trail

            Ha ha Zombi U > Ground Zeroes

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Ha ha Resogun > Zombi U

          • David Trail

            SM3DW > anything on PS4

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            PS4 sales > Wii U sales

            Game over, try again from the start. ;P

          • David Trail

            Ps4 for the gamers. Only plays sales…

            SM3DW 93% > anything on PS4

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That would be true if it wasn’t an opinion. ;P

          • David Trail

            But it is true as more people share that opinion ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sharing an opinion just makes it another opinion. Nice try, though. ;)

          • David Trail

            More people agree with me. Which backs up my statement more. It makes it look like you have poor taste. Even if you personally like the game eg I like Sonic. I like it but people aren’t going to agree because of the scores but if I were to go I like SM3DW most people would agree as they would have read the reviews and all the praise it has got.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “More people agree with me. Which backs up my statement more.”

            It basically means, that people agree with your opinion. However, no matter how much they agree with you, it still remains an opinion, as calling something good or bad, is subjective, and not objective. I take it you need to brush up and understand between opinion and fact. Only thing that would be fact is its low rating score. ;P

          • David Trail

            Ya a fact that more people share my opinion. That’s is fact. Not subjective ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Oh Davey boy…you’re really are sheltered aren’t ya? ;)

            Come back to me with that illogical response, when you’ve talked to more than just a handful of kids over the net vs the whole gaming community world wide. Then your opinion may be fact. ;P

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          Wii Party is a FANTASTIC series. Do NOT knock what you haven’t tried. I’ve never had more fun with my Wii than when I had a party with about 10 people and played that game. You are categorizing it with games that look similar but are executed horribly. Don’t make that mistake

          • Daniel Gonzalez
          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            naaaah. Just defending a great game ;)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m sure it was a fine game for those who like the sort. I won’t judge. I used it to point out David’s poor logic on what is considered shovelware. We both know Wii Fit U nor Knack fit the bill. ;P

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            neither do I :) Shovelware is a lot more obvious than that. and Knack doesn’t really look that bad

    • Deadpool U

      And at last it’s revealed RyuNoHadouken and Daniel Gonzalez are the person!

  • NkoSekirei

    movie based games tend to suck so ill pass on this

    • David Trail

      Especially when it’s a lame movie lol!

      • Deadpool U

        What the f*ck did you say about HTTYD?

        • David Trail

          It’s a lame movie???

          • Mario

            Jerk!

          • David Trail

            It is lame movie though.

          • Mario

            Jerk, jerk!!

          • David Trail

            It’s the greatest movie ever. I was just kidding guys lol ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Suuuuure you were. ;)

          • matthew garcia

            It has that children’s look that makes it look like a nintendo game

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That’s most of Nintendo’s games.

          • David Trail

            Is a lot older than Sony’s

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Nintendo’s strategy of targeting kids is older than Sony’s? I can agree to that.

          • David Trail

            Older people play games like Mario

            Children play games like COD/ Sony games being more like COD cough cough!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Kids play Mario games? That’s true. It’s great that you understand that.

          • David Trail

            Kids and adults play Mario games!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Kids and older kids play them? So true!

          • David Trail

            More kids play Sony dude. How do you think it gets the sales. More kids in the world. They like cheap things that make them feel like an adult.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Older people play games like Mario

            Children play games like COD/ Sony games being more like COD cough cough!”

            So since you’re telling me that there is more kids in the world than adults, that means that Mario is more for kids. Nice job contradicting your own argument. ;P

          • David Trail

            I have a chart. I am on my phone. Type in COD target audience.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Which would be the same target audience of Nintendo. Thank you for the obvious.

          • matthew garcia

            Honestly most young adults especially ones in college sit I there dorm room and play Sony or xbox. Games like skyrim. Never really see anyone rock in a wii u. I hate to say this cuz i don’t see it like this but a majority of a adults see it as something embarrassing to own. It’s considered the console that won’t help u get laid

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Haha. Yeah, I can see that happening. In my case, I don’t see owning a Wii U as bad. I don’t see myself caring much for it because it’s made up of mostly Nintendo games, and I’m pretty much over them. Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros are the only ones that look appealing to me.

          • matthew garcia

            I understand. It’s like a woman. Some look attractive in my eyes and yours they may look like crap. Same with games lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well said. It’s opinions. Not everyone is going to share your tastes(or mine). Games or women. Handful of people have a tough time understanding that. Lol.

          • Michael Legault

            Since when has there been a console that WILL get you laid? Not counting PC use with dating sites :P ‘hey baby, wanna check out my xbone?’

          • David Trail

            Simpsons is a cartoon but appeals to everyone.

          • matthew garcia

            The Simpsons has adult qualities to it that mario does not have. They talk about sex in that show. Games are entertainment like movies. Nobody wants to go to the movies and watch pixar movies all the time they have to see some rated r shit as well. This is nintendos problem

          • David Trail

            It does have adult qualities. Why do so many adults play it?

          • matthew garcia

            I was thinkin more like God of war or gears of war. U may not like those games but truth is nintendo needs games like that. Nintendo lost a lot of momentum compared to last gen. Change has to be made. Nintendo made a bad move losing perfect dark

          • David Trail

            He funny thing is that you think games like GOW are for adults but in fact. They are for children.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Kids get their hands on any games these days. Why would that be a surprise? I blame that on bad parenting. ;P

          • matthew garcia

            Nah that’s what esrb is for. God of war is rated m for ages 17 and up so obviously it was developed for adults. By law children can’t just go to the counter and buy that game

          • David Trail

            There is a big difference between the target audience and the actual audience dude. Just look at COD.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            “They talk about sex in that show”

            3edgy5me

          • David Trail

            It doesn’t look like a Nintendo game.

          • matthew garcia

            Well it has that kid dish charm to it like mario or Kirby donkey Kong. Most nintendo characters look like cartoons. No denying that

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Most Nintendo games are cartoonish with the exception of games like Metroid.

          • David Trail

            South Park is a cartoon. Yet it appeals to adults.

          • matthew garcia

            Ha lol I don’t hear mario saying suck my cock like southpark

          • David Trail

            He doesn’t need to. He just fires a fire ball at a Goomba!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Which is childsplay.

          • David Trail

            Just like the guy out of Infamous ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Just like the guy that spits fire balls out of his mouth. ;)

          • David Trail

            O you’re saying Sony is for kids. What a coincidence : )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m pretty much pointing out your bad logic. Course you have a hard time noticing that. ;)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            IKR? If Mario games were more like that, then I’d buy it day one. :D

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s meant for adults. However, Mario games appeal to kids more and families.

          • David Trail

            Wrong

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Truth.

          • David Trail

            Truth is that ps4 sells because of all the stupid kids that over hype the piece of sh%t

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            The same kids that play Nintendo games? Very true!

    • andrewjcole

      I always wait until videos come just in case.

    • tom

      yep

  • Christian Schoff

    I might get it.

  • McBlink

    More games are great but this is from a developer that has created mega hits such as, Monster High:13 Wishes, Young Justice: Legacy & Barbie Dream House Party.

    • David Trail

      I love those games ; )

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      games that I’m guessing you’re not the target audience for. So can you really speak to their credibility?

      • McBlink

        Was I their target audience when I played Kirby’s Epic Yarn? No! I enjoyed it anyway.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          sure, but have you given these games a chance like you did Kirby?

  • RichM

    Please understand, there will be no game drought this year. We will bring you many family friendly movie to game titles and many indie titles as well. In addition, we will release one game a week to the eShop even though we could release everything in one fell swoop.
    In all honesty, I’ll pass. However, I would hope this is a sleeper hit that no one saw coming. Loved the first movie.

    • David Trail

      There is so many games on ps4. I love that the multiplats look superior on PC. I love the fact that Wii U exclusives get better reviews than my PS4 exclusives. I love the fact that Wii U has exclusives that PS4 isn’t getting such as the brilliant Shovel Knight. I love how the only good exclusive Infamous Second Son can be completed in a week. Meanwhile Wii U has the hardcore DKC TF and Mario Kart 8 which can last for years and has unlimited replayability!

      • Marcus Larsson

        And everybody else is glad you are one of few, and the rest of us love our epic stories in our big budget games.
        While i was dumb to invest in a wii u early the rest who wants Zelda might buy it when the price is well under what Nintendo wants, and the games are cheap as dirt.

  • Joel

    Liked the movie, not the best but solid. I’ll see what the opinion is on this when it comes out and probably get it for my daughter.

  • Henry Hotspur

    IT’S OVER, MICROSOFT IS FINISHED

  • Jorge Luis Blanco Cordero

    hope it isn’t as bad as almost every movie inspired game!

    I thought D3 was the publisher for Dreamworks games

  • Ace J

    ah can’t wait to play this sweet little shovelware title!

  • Sdudyoy

    There have been very few video games based on movies that I’ve enjoyed, they’re just weird most of the time.

  • Random12multi

    Hey guy’s I found a leaked screenshot of the game look :D

  • Lil’ Goron

    Damn Sony just announced a Virtual Headset and Nintendo gets this. HA!
    but to be fair at least Nintendo tried VR back in the day. Man Nintendo is always ahead too early or too late.
