Now available on the Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii and 3DS, Microsoft XBox360 and PC gaming consoles, UBISoft have just launched The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn to Australian and New Zealand audiences. The game is based on The Adventures of Tintin Film which was produced by Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, with all three having close collaborations with Ubisoft Montpellier who developed this game.
The game will have three modes: Solo, Cooperative and Challenge, with each having a rather obvious play mechanic. Solo follows the events of the movie that blends in various elements of Herge’s original Tintin comic books The Crabe with Golden Claws, The Secret ofthe Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure. In their press release they described this mode as “a unique blend of platforming, exploration, puzzle-solving and “exotic gameplays” such as swordfighting, ace combat and side-car driving. Players will embody Tintin, the intrepid reporter, and other main characters, each having its own personality and skills. Other sidekicks will appear when help is needed.”. The co-operative mode is staged in Captain Haddock’s dream world where players take control of Tintin, Captain Haddock, Snowy, Bianca Castafiore, Thompson and Sir Francis Haddock and help each other solve mysteries. Finally, Challenge Mode provides gamers with the extra challenge if they so desire it.
The above trailer is the recent storyline trailer, however I have also included a bunch of screenshots below.
