Suda 51's New PS3 Exclusive: Kurayami

The eccentric Suda 51 harnesses the power of PS3 for a bizarre action/adventure inspired the work of existentialist writer Franz Kafka. In an unusual town full of odd locals, your stranded characters must explore the town and its castle to find a way out, using only his carried torch to light his way and to fend off the unexpected and unexplainable horrors that await. Advanced new lighting and graphic techniques are used to impress upon you the feeling of fear and loneliness (the tite "Kurayami" means "Darkness" in Japanese) as you venture through to the end of your quest.

Update:

More Details

"The player will be thus plunged in a village obscure which it will have to traverse with a torch to reach a castle and to discover his mysteries. Thanks to the power techniques of PlayStation 3, Suda Goichi intends to stress the graphic style (textures, drawings of the characters, decorations, etc.) of Kurayami so that the player can truly feel the darkness and darkness, the concept of the fear will play a very important part in the play."

Multiplats will mean nothin soon 2 the Ps3

cmrbe3375d ago

the game that was hinted. I still hope someday for a new colony wars a a new sython filter using KZ2's engine.

Mu5afir3375d ago

This is not the "hinted" game for GamesCon. Though, a Suda 51 game is HUGE.

raztad3375d ago

Suda game?

I'M IN. Probably Suda understood where really is the mature audience waiting for mature games.

cmrbe3375d ago

call me a greedy bastard but i want more exclusive games. Offcouse this is huge. Any game by Goichi is a must buy for me.

MTEC83375d ago

if the quality is anywhere near deadspace, I'll be picking it up when its released.

Thank goodness it's not another shooter....there's just WAY too many shooters this gen. My favorite genre is Action/Adventure, and these are the kind of games I want to see more of this gen.

Hopefully at this years Tokyo Game Show there's more info about this game with a Trailer.

MisterNiwa3375d ago

is like, 3 Years old, i mean, it got announced back then and never got updated! :O Just checked it.

InfectedDK3375d ago

Nice..
Wondering what the next one will be..

MTEC83375d ago

you are an idiot, everyone knows that MGS4 was a huge flop, right?

ShadowRyuX3375d ago

the wikipedia article for Suda mentions a deal with EA to produce a horror title for all platforms, could this be it? If it is that would mean it is indeed not an exclusive game

N4PS3G3375d ago

lol ..this game was canned long ago..this info is from 2006...go to neogaf and find for yourself.

Information Minister3375d ago

I seriously doubt this one will stay exclusive. Remember when MGS: Rising was announced and people thought it was exclusive for the 360 for a while?

Suda's games are known for being hits among reviewers, not for being commercial hits. Releasing on only one of the HD platforms is risky business.

callahan093375d ago

@ Information Minister:

Yeah, I remember when Killer 7 was announced as a GameCube exclusive, but then it wound up coming out on PS2 as well.

ZOMBIEMAN13375d ago

*Another exclusive wowMultiplats will mean nothin soon 2 the Ps3" and the 360 fanboys will look up and shout save us and Sony will whisper no

ActionBastard3375d ago

I remember "No More Heroes" being called an exclusive and it...wait, it DID stay exclusive. So it does happen...

You might be blinded by the marketing/sales, popularity or quality... but there are PLENTY of Action/Adventure games available.

andron3375d ago

A Suda 51 game for PS3 is great news. Killer 7 was fun and I really want to play No more heroes someday.

Original mature games are hard to come by, so this is great news...

WHOA WHAT!? I had no idea this existed... Pretty exiting if you ask me. Although I guess great exclusives shouldn't surprise me anymore.

Hey-oh!

Mu5afir3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

Though I haven't played his latest game for the Wii, these guys can do a lot with what ever system they are working with. And I want to see what they can do with the Ps3. Anyway, a Suda 51 game on the Ps3 is always welcome. xD

Little more detail:

"The player will be thus plunged in a village obscure which it will have to traverse with a torch to reach a castle and to discover his mysteries. Thanks to the power techniques of PlayStation 3, Suda Goichi intends to stress the graphic style (textures, drawings of the characters, decorations, etc.) of Kurayami so that the player can truly feel the darkness and darkness, the concept of the fear will play a very important part in the play."

Cajun Chicken3375d ago

Wow. Does anyone thinks this sounds a little Alan Wake'ish?

PirateThom3375d ago

A little, but I'm guessing it's a more "medieval" setting based on nothing but "castle" and "torch".

If it's Suda51, it'll be a lot crazier than Alan Wake, that's for sure.

TGS for more info probably?

Mu5afir3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

Actually it reminds me of Luigi's Mansion.
But, I am sure it's going to have Suda 51 twist to it.

@PirateThom

Yeah, hoping to hear more at TGS.

mastiffchild3375d ago

I heard Suda and Shinji Mikami were going to make a survival horror game with Suda being director and Mikami overseeing the project-I wonder if this is the fruits of that. If so there's some talent on the go there isn't there?

Only thing is that I thought that mooted game was a multi platform-who knows eh?

INehalemEXI3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

it reminds me of demons souls that insane asylum level. Sounds like alan a bit too. Only a torch for an arsenal sounds meh though. Yeah Suda could do something crazy cool.

Tony P3375d ago

It's a Suda 51, it'll definitely have its own flavour. ALL of the guy's games are quirky like that.

sniper-squeak3375d ago

I said this a while bak regarding the motion control, natal and home... Evolution of consoles.. the two console's are copying each other... you got Dead nations and L4D, Quantum and Gears, and now this and Alan Wake?

ZOMBIEMAN13375d ago

why do you think that he said he uses the torch to kill enemies it doesn't mean that's the only way to kill them and why does it have to be Alan Wake if i remember Alone in The Dark had you using fire to kill enemies so Alan and this both copy Alone in The Dark and to sniper squeak dude we don't even know what Dead Nation is so how could it be a copy of L4D and why is it copieng L4D it isn't the first zombie game

INehalemEXI3375d ago (Edited 3375d ago )

hopefully there is something deeper then just the torch. They did say only though.

I loved Killer7

lordcrackpot3375d ago

ya killer 7 is awesome. still can't forgive myself for trading it in...now its pretty rare to find. now all we need is a killer 7 sequel.

ZOMBIEMAN13375d ago

yeah Killer 7 was awesome but it was more different and mind fvck at the same time right around the end were you find out that everyone you played as except Garcian is dead and Garcian killed them and Harman wasn't a crippled old man and Iwazaru was Kun Lan the ending just didn't make sense even my friend got mind fvcked but i did enjoy the anime graphics and cute scene and seeing Samanth fvcking Harman , i still have my GC copy but i don't get why it's 2 disc every capcom game on GC was 2 disc . can't wait for Kurayami hopefully it's exclusive because i'd like to see this guy actually use the power of PS3 combined with his art style i'd be killer and i hope it's gory
