Mastertronic Games has announced that May's Mysteries: The Secret Of Dragonville will be hitting the Nintendo DS this August, bringing a huge number of varied puzzle minigames and an overarching storyline and hand-drawn visuals to the platform. The DS certainly isn't short of a few puzzle games, but if you're interested, we have the full details below.
Developer V5 Play confirms that May’s Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville will release on August 5th; chronicling the adventure of the eponymous heroine as she embarks on a "thrilling and charming adventure to find her missing brother." This plot will act as the vehicle for over 270 different minigames that offer a range of cerebral brainteasers, hidden object puzzles, visual-based shenanigans and even some rhythm sections. Hand-drawn artwork should hopefully help this one stand out from the crowd, and we'll have a full review for you shortly. Please forgive me if I concentrate on the E3 writeups first...
Puzzle adventures, hidden object games and rhythm action titles make for some of the most popular handheld games, but never before has a game offered all three – and so much more. May’s Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville is an incredible piece of software which will captivate all who play. We think May could become the poster child for puzzle adventures, and we can’t wait for DS owners to fall in love with a new heroine this August. - Neil McKenna, Mastertronic Product Director
