The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick takes gamers through an all-new take on the trials of Dorothy and her lovely dog, Toto, turning these charming characters into classic RPG heroes. A sudden tornado uproots Dorothy and Toto in one fell gust, only to drop them hours later in an eerie land far from Kansas. It is here that Dorothy learns that the only way to return home is to follow the disembodied voice beckoning her to the end of the Yellow Brick Road. On her journey, Dorothy encounters some unlikely characters that eventually join her in her homeward bound quest.
Dorothy and Toto, joined by their newfound companions – the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man— embark on a trying and obstacle-filled journey to the castle at the end of the Yellow Brick Road. Upon arrival, the group learns from a mysterious wizard that the magical land has been usurped by four evil witches. Dorothy and her cohorts are tasked with defeating the witches, and will earn a trip home in return. But is this new mission and its consequences everything it seems to be?
