2008 Nintendo DS Game Lock's Quest Announced for Consoles

By Kelly Packard,
Re-releasing a charming Nintendo DS tower defense title from 2008 called Lock's Quest? Why not? Players of the original may be surprised to hear it will be coming current-gen consoles almost 10 years later. The original publisher was THQ. Now, the recently-renamed THQ Nordic will be taking on a remaster of the game that will be out in April.

The current-gen version will feature completely revamped UI and controls, remastered music, and a new progression system. The pixel style of the original game was preserved but the visuals were also updated. The developers "always felt Lock’s Quest deserved a multi-platform release."


The original game starred Lock, a young boy who must defend his village from invaders, which leads to a larger war within his kingdom. The story goes through 75 days of warfare, unlocking different maps, turrets, traps and special abilities along the way.

  • Place Kingdom Force units to defend your capitol in a brand new Endless Mode - Antonia Defense!
  • Build up your fortifications each day to defend against a timed Clockwork assault. Use dozens of Turrets, Traps and Helpers to stop the advance.
  • Adapt your building and battling strategies as you access new materials and as your enemy’s intelligence evolves
  • Fight alongside your defenses, using context sensitive Special Attacks, and devastating Super Attacks, which impact a wide range of enemies.
  • Unlock the secrets of Kingdom Force and the Archineers via an engrossing story with a multi character cast, told via hand drawn cinematics and cut-scenes.

Lock's Quest will be available in April 2017.

We've got the full list of Lock's Quest trophies - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
