In a new gameplay trailer released today, Sierra unveiled the name of the debut chapter of King’s Quest, the bold reimagining of one of adventure gaming’s most memorable franchises. The first entry in an original five-chapter story arc developed by The Odd Gentlemen, King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember sets the stage for an unforgettable journey to come in late July.
The newest gameplay trailer from King’s Quest teases how this new chapter of a timeless saga begins. As an aging King Graham reflects on a life of heroism with his granddaughter, Gwendolyn, King’s Quest transports players back to experience firsthand the untold tales that shaped a kingdom. King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember unfolds on a young Graham’s first day in the land of Daventry, as he contends with other knights, a fire-breathing dragon and his own boundless enthusiasm to fulfill his destiny of earning a position in King Edward’s court.
In addition, the trailer showcases new dialogue from King’s Quest‘s recently revealed vocal cast, including Christopher Lloyd as an old King Graham, Josh Keaton as a young Graham, Maggie Elizabeth Jones as Gwendolyn, and Zelda Williams as Amaya the Blacksmith.
