Sega has released the first trailer of Imabikisou, a horror adventure game which is currently in development. It has been announced for the Playstation 3 only. No other details are available. Hit jump to trailer.
Interesting, 10/25/2007 Release date in Japan. We need all the games we can get, i say bring them all over to the US.
As much as I am displeased with Sega, (mind u now from the days of the dreamcast) I think the PS3 could do well with a title like this.
I hope we get a Fatal Frame game soon.
omg i lurvvv horror games, there so sexy.
i hope they make ProjectZero 3 cant wait
What if someone made a Horror hentai game :)
Im very sure there are already Horror Hentai games~
have finally got around to making night-trap 2
I didn't know japaness like horro games.
yo thanks for Nariko i`ll take good care of her.
I don't speak Japanese at all but from reading all of the Japanese symbols, I would say the story looks good too.
God for Sega. It looks like the Grudge. I will keep an out of for this game.
I love horror games and this reminds me of the grudge in it's style, i didn't know sega had it in them this is a really promising trailer!
seems to be somewhat stereotyped (werewolf looking thing wearing a shirt @ 00:40)... I guess will see
I really hope it's good :)
that looked pretty freaky.....
lol the trailer was alil bit more funny than it was scary.....but then
the grudge made me giggle too, I hope its a good game though
looks interesting. very "the ring" styled
good another Ps3 exclusive. The Cell processor, blu ray and hard drive are starting to show its strength over the xbox360.
Now we all know that this game is more than likely coming to 360 for god's sakes its sega. They love ms, look how the have screwed ps3 gamers time and time again. ex VF5 and Virtua tennis both online on 360 and not ps3. I'm starting to think sega has some sour grapes with sony still lol. I mean virtua tennis not having online made me suspicious of sega cause the games came out the same day, but no online for ps3 wtf, then online VF5 sealed the deal for me, they really dont like sony. If i get a sega game it will be on my 360.
as of now is ps3 exclusive you can even note that on the video.
is it really an exclusive cause we all know these companies like to jump ship so i have the feeling it might just do that. but i hope it stays a PS3 exclusive the more games we get exclusivly on the PS3 is better.
Reminded me of the grudge. But it was scray as hell. Thing about video games is that when you are playing, things tend to be a lot scarier than in movies.
I really enjoyed the Silent Hill and Project Zero series.
@Hentai: You hope they make Project Zero 3? No need to wait for it!
Hmm i dont think it came out in uk for PAL i cant find it in any store
so a ps3 version would be nice
This is a "sound novel".
"A visual novel (ビジュアルノベル, bijuaru noberu?) is an interactive fiction game featuring mostly static graphics, usually with anime-style art. As the name might suggest, they resemble mixed-media novels or tableau vivant stage plays. Visual novels are commonly called dating sims in the West, a misnomer as visual novels are classified as a sub-genre of adventure games and not simulation games. This has led to confusion with the other genre known as dating sims, which often shares a similar visual format with visual novels, but has gameplay based on statistics.
In Japanese, a distinction is often made between visual novels proper (abbreviated NVL) and adventure games (abbreviated AVG or ADV): the main difference is in the presentation of the text, which is overlaid on the picture in a visual novel, and confined to a window at the bottom of the screen in an "adventure". This distinction is normally lost in English, where adventure game refers to a different genre.
Visual novels and ADVs are especially prevalent in Japan, where they make up nearly 70% of PC games released. They are rarely produced for video game consoles, but the more popular games are sometimes ported to systems such as the Sega Dreamcast or the Playstation 2. The market for visual novels outside of Japan, however, is nearly non-existent.
Sound Novels is a trademark of Chunsoft, which used the term for its novel games such as Otogirisou, Kamaitachi no Yoru and Machi. Sound Novels were the origin of the "novel"-type game genre. Both genres share the style and gameplay. However the term "Visual Novel" is used by non-Chunsoft developers partly to avoid Chunsoft's trademark and partly to emphasize its focus on visuals rather than sound. As later entries in Chunsoft's own Sound Novel series have strengthened its visual expression with 3DCG and real-life graphics, the latter difference have pretty much disappeared.
Despite what the term may imply, not all sound novels have voice acting; the "sound" being merely background music and sound effects. An example of this is the original Higurashi no Naku Koro ni series for the PC, which billed themselves as "sound novels".
VisualArt's, the major visual novel house that publishes Key's works (among numerous other brands), has recently released a series of works called Kinetic Novels, which are notable for being an experiment in online content distribution. Most of these fall into the completely linear category, lacking any choices at all; as a result, some fans have begun using the term to describe other non-interactive titles."
There you are, from wikipedia. I think I'll pass this one...
Creepy as sh!t, that is all I can say for Japanese horror.
the beggining scared the hell out of me with the guy laying down and his eye just staring right at you
as kittens playing with yarn. I love horror games, and horror movies in general but from that I say pass. Hopefully, this game will be more than that, this game looks like artsy attempt at horror that does no more than bring out all the chills of the bride of chuckie lmao.
nothing like japanees horror, bring it!
I want it!
tag, you're it
