All Articles: Rise of Nightmares
“No dancing. No steering wheels. No perky aerobics instructors. And you don’t need friends or loved ones to play”
Sega’s Rise of Nightmares is definitely not aiming for the typical Kinect crowd with that kind of proclamation from their “Undead Spokesman.” See what else the well-spoken zombie has to say as he introduces a nice, clean cut couple to the joys of meleeing a demon ballerina with a boot to the face.
The only way Rise of Nightmares could get more awesome is if it was revealed to be a secret Evil Dead game.
Sega has outdone themselves with their survival horror Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares. The new trailer is full of blood, gore, and hilarity. And just as I was thinking that this is a good move for Microsoft to try to get away from the Kinect kiddie game stigma, the trailer gives its two cents: “Not your usual family-friendly Kinect game, is it?” Ha!
Rise of Nightmares will be out on September 6 for the Xbox 360.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s a popular phrase that goes back almost 200 years and Sega has certainly adopted it in their crusade to create another great Sonic the Hedgehog game on a console. The publisher will try again this year as Sonic Generations (3DS, PS3, Xbox 360) leads their E3 lineup. Sega is so sure they’ve got it right this time that they’re even giving the public a sneak peek at the game at the Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 8 at 6 PM (Pacific Time).
The remainder of Sega’s lineup is pretty diverse and seems to have a little bit of something for everyone:
- The long-gestating squad-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines
- Platinum Games’ latest brawler, Anarchy Reigns
- The Terminator-esque Binary Domain
- Movie-to-game adaptation Captain America: Super Soldier
- The reborn puzzler Crush 3D
- The XBLA debut of Treasure’s Guardian Heroes
- The brilliant light gun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, on the PS3 for the first time.
- Downloadable action title Renegade Ops
- The first M-rated Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares
- The rally racer Sega Rally Online Arcade, which is available now
- And Shinobi emerging from the shadows on the 3DS
Sega also has a few surprises in store for the E3 Expo as they’ve promised “more than 13 new games across all major platforms,” but they only listed 12 games. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nintendo, I’d bet good money that we’ll get a Wii 2 announcement or two.
More information on Sega’a announced E3 slate can be found after the break. (more…)
