The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is an action-adventure fantasy video game developed by Traveller's Tales to coincide with the theatrical release of the film of the same name. The game was announced at E3 2007. It was released for the Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Wii, Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 on 15 May in North America to mixed reception. The DS version was also the first game to implement Disney's DGamer online chat service.
A significant feature has William Moseley, Skandar Keynes, Anna Popplewell, Georgie Henley, Ben Barnes, Vincent Grass, Peter Dinklage, and Cornell S. John reprising their roles from the film.
One year has passed in our world since the first adventure ended, but in Narnia, almost 1300 years have passed. The villainous King Miraz prevents the rightful heir, his young nephew, Prince Caspian, from ruling the land of Narnia. Caspian uses Susan's magic horn that was left in Narnia to summon the four Pevensies and a small army of Old Narnians to help him reclaim his rightful throne.
Puzzles need to be solved to progress through the game and unlock bonus material. Featuring 20 playable characters, of which 4 are available in each level, each character uses different weapons and abilities. These Include: The Pevensie children, Prince Caspian, Glenstorm, Trumpkin, Dr. Cornelius, Reepicheep, Giant Wimbleweather, Tyrus the Satyr, and Asterius the Minotaur. In addition to these, several unnamed characters are also playable, including Trees, Fauns, Centaurs, Gryphons and horses can also be controlled after they have been mounted by the player's character. Bonus material is, however, primarily unlocked by opening Treasure Chests, which require a certain amount of keys to be opened.
The game is spread through six chapters:
- Cair Paravel
- Ruins of Cair Paravel
- Miraz's Castle Infiltration
- Miraz's Castle assault
- Aslan's How
- Battle of Beruna
All chapters have a certain number of missions within them, which greatly expands the gameplay. In addition to the aforementioned chapters, four bonus levels can also be unlocked and completed.
There are also levels where you can ride gryphons, giants and horses.
