Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has released the first trailer and assets for its forthcoming Gormiti: The Lords of Nature! title for Wii and Nintendo DS. The game also made its first public appearance on the Giochi Preziosi/Gormiti event at the International Toy Fair Nürnberg in Germany which was held between February 4th-9th.

Gormiti: The Lords of Nature! will be released across Europe in Q3 2010, and uses characters and locations from the popular Gormiti TV show co-produced by Marathon Media & Giochi Preziosi. The game recreates the beautifully illustrated island of Gorm, where the Lords of Earth, Sea, Air and Forest are charged with stopping the evil Magmion from wreaking havoc.

The action starts as a character called Razzle, while cleaning the library, accidentally knocks some old books into a Portal. These books tumble down to Gorm and land at the feet of Magmion, the evil Lava Gormiti. Magmion reads the book and learns of an old legend which talks about reuniting five sacred amulets which have been scattered across Gorm. Once reunited these amulets allow the holder to open an inter-dimensional portal to Earth! The Lords of Nature need to use all their unique powers to hinder Magmion’s plans and save Earth.

In addition to the story and arcade modes that both versions share, the Wii game also allows two-players to play together co-operatively. It also features jigsaw and sliding tile puzzle games, wherein tiles or jigsaw pieces relating to each of the main characters must be collected and assembled. The completed image then reveals an interactive 3D interactive character. All FMV sequences in Gormiti: The Lords of Nature! are voiced by actors from the cartoon show, and once unlocked, a full 40 minutes of action can be watched together.

Both the Wii and Nintendo DS titles feature a wealth of key landmarks from the TV series, as players directly control three of the Lords of Nature within a group. Using the individual skills of each Lord, players battle Magmion’s minions using melee ‘Super’ attacks, or powerful long-ranged moves, and can switch between their various skills with ease. Gameplay is enhanced with puzzles and obstacles that must be overcome using the group of 3 Lords currently at the player’s disposal.
