Take one part Total Recall and add in a dash of… actually that’s it. Capcom’s next original project, Remember Me, looks like a new twist on Philip K. Dick’s classic sci-fi story. But instead of the hulking hugeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger or the svelte suaveness of Colin Farrell, Remember Me stars Nilin, a female “memory hunter” who has had her own memory erased.
In the world of Remember Me, memory hunters “[have] the special ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even change their memories.” OK, so a dash of Inception made it into developer Dontnod’s first game as well.
This genre soup will reach stores in May 2013 on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. But you can check out the first trailer above. It’s pretty impressive, even if it does look a little familiar.
