Gameplay & Storyline

Even the smallest creature can be as brave as a knight in shining armor! In conjunction with this holiday’s must-see family animated film, and inspired from the storybook novel by Kate DiCarmillo, The Tale of Despereaux puts players at the helm of a 2 inch hero, Despereaux, a small mouse with a big heart.

Born with his eyes open, exceptionally large ears and a miniature body, Despereaux Carlos Tilling has always been unusual. His love of music, books and the human Princess Pea, leads him to be shunned by his fellow mice and banished to a world of darkness. After Princess Pea is kidnapped, Despereaux traverses through the Kingdom of Dor using stealth and wit to fend off both animal enemies and human foe, in an effort to save the princess.

Embarking on this storybook styled quest, players soon become entangled in a web of revenge, jealousy and most of all, heroics. The Tale of Despereaux game is timed to launch alongside the animated fantasy film of the same name, by Universal Pictures during the upcoming holiday season.
