Return to Middle-earth in this video game based on the epic final chapter of the highly-acclaimed The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
The GBA version of The Return of the King is an isometric action-RPG. Play as six heroes: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Frodo, Eowyn and Gandalf the White. With over a million random items, 150 levels (including the Paths of the Dead, Minas Tirith, and the Pelennor Fields), unique skill trees associated with each hero, and cooperative play via the GBA Link Cable, The Return of the King provides dozens of hours of gameplay.
The GBA version also links to the Nintendo GameCube to unlock new items and secret characters.
Includes several scenes that were cut out of the film at the last minute, including Saruman's death at Isengard at the hands of Wormtongue, Aragorn's fight with the Mouth of Sauron, and Gandalf's confrontation with the Witch King.
Even though the film calls Aragorn's reforged sword "Anduril" (as the books call it), the game incorrectly calls it "Narsil." This is because in the developer's screenplay the word Anduril was never mentioned.
Several of the unique items in the game bear the names of the developers as well as those of several fans who created FAQs for the previous Griptonite game, The Two Towers.
