Although the Kinect’s triumphant march to date has been relying mostly on 3D modeling hacks and dancing games, someone was bound to throw the hardcore a bone one of these days, right? Well, it turns out they did, about a year ago, in the form of the announcement of a survival horror game called Rise of Nightmares published by Sega. That’s all we knew about it until it recently got the ESRB treatment.
“This is a horror-adventure game in which players assume the role of an American tourist who must rescue his wife from a deranged scientist,” is how the ESRB sums it up. It’s not hard to see how this could easily turn into fun with “zombie-like creatures and disfigured monsters inside a mansion environment”.
Considering new Dead Island details have recently surfaced as well, it’s looking like a bad week to be a tourist in video games. We are, however, glad to see the zombie madness continue apace. Enjoy it while you can, zombie fans, at this rate zombie games will be going the way of the WWII FPS within a year.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News
