Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom is the third game in the Untold Legends series and the first not to appear on the PSP. In this action-based hack 'n slash RPG, the player can choose from 3 classes of fighters: Warrior (strong melee attacks), Mage (magical ranged attacked and melee combat with a staff) and Scout (quick movement and dagger attacks). There are 8 levels for each character.
The story follows a group of elite units who return from a long conflict. Back home they discover their king has been corrupted by dark magic and plans to use these powers against his own people. The knights plan to assassinate him, but fail, and eventually have to flee from the army.
While fighting the characters gain experience, divided over predetermined attributes and extra points that can be freely spent. In addition there are skill points unique for the class, used to learn new skills.
Multiplayer is supported for up to 2 (offline) or 4 players (online) with a cooperative game mode.
