Henry Hatsworth Devs' New Project Revealed

The principal leads on Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure have left Electronic Arts and formed their own development studio, DreamRift. Get ready for more innovative genre blending with Monster Tale on DS.

While Hatsworth wasn't perfect, the blend of platforming and puzzle gameplay intrigued and showed plenty of promise. According to details sent from publisher Majesco, Monster Tale follows a similar trail by combining platforming with monster training. You'll control Ellie on the top screen while evolving her monster pal, Chomp, on the touch screen by giving him various items. You can also summon him up to the action for around 30 different offensive and defensive moves.

During Ellie's quest through the appropriately titled Monster World, you'll fight monsters throughout evil nightclubs, ruins, and an express train. Majesco promises epic boss battles against rival kids and their pet monsters as well.

Monster Tale is expected to release this December.
