Impressed by the Soul Sacrifice teaser trailer? There’s more: the game has been revealed as a dark, horror title from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.
Inafune also has Dead Rising and Lost Planet to his credit. The game is targeted for a winter release in Japan. It is currently 50 percent complete and will support up to four players.
The game has you embodying a cruel sorcerer’s slave. You escape from being sacrificed by plunging into the pages of a demonic book. You grow stronger by experiencing the book’s battles first-hand.
The attacks are gruesome, fantastic, and sure to be sights to behold. They involve sacrificing various parts of your body. One such attack has you pulling out your spinal cord through your throat and brandishing it as a sword. You can also chop off your fingers and punch your enemies to death with the exposed stumps.
Abusing magic will deform your character, turning it into a demonic creature.
More details are expected soon.
Capcom has officially woken the dead again as the publisher today confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is indeed in development, and for three platforms too: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Adding another zero to its predecessor, the sequel promises “tens of thousands of zombies” and will take players to the “gambling paradise of Fortune City”.
The game is set several years after the events of the first title. Unfortunately, the virus was not contained and spread unchecked throughout the US.
It is being developed by Canadian developer Blue Castle Games with a number of members from the original Dead Rising team. Capcom’s global head of research and development – Keiji Inafune – will serve as the game’s producer and will play an active role in the project.
Below are the first screenshots from the game. Enjoy.
