All You Need to Know About The Nutcracker

In this version of The Nutcracker, a girl called Maria dreams about a Nutcracker who comes to life and battles a mouse king with seven heads. The Mouse King’s heads are smashed by the Nutcracker and Maria finds herself inside a giant palace full of sweets.

This story is also an inspiration for many game developers, especially after the release of the game series “Tales of”. The most famous example would be “Luminous Arc 2”, released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS which also features a Nutcracker named Zephyr.

But, though there are many games inspired by this story, none of them feature the actual Nutcracker in the game.

For example :

– “Fable 2”, Ubisoft (2008)

In this version, the player takes on the role of an unnamed Guardian of Light and must face hordes of evil creatures as well as solve puzzles to progress through the game. Lara Croft is a playable character in addition to The Guardian of Light and can be switched into at any time.

The game features simple hack and slash combat which parallels that of the Tomb Raider series, but also includes square-based puzzle elements taken from “Tales of”.

“Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” received mixed reviews from critics. The gameplay mechanics were praised for being solid and interesting, but it was heavily criticized for its poor graphics.”

Yggdra Union is a tactical role-playing game for the PlayStation Portable, developed by Sting. It was released in Japan on December 6, 2007, and in North America on March 18, 2008.
