Excerpt: With fast-paced, hack 'n slash action, randomly-generated environments, monsters and items, beautiful 3D graphics and wireless cooperative multiplayer gameplay, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade offers a compelling, on-the-go gameplay experience never before seen on a handheld gaming device.

Excerpt: Guardian: ?I must find the Lair of the Sleeping Wolf beneath the Gasping Caves in the Riven Flats of the Badlands. There is an ancient guardian there know as the Savage Matriarch who safeguards the urn!? No problem, I?ll just equip my ?Fierce Crested Warblade of Brutality?
