No, its not based on that crappy Robert Pattinson movie where he kicks the bucket and everybody gets all tearful and stuff, instead Capcom‘s new IP ‘Remember Me‘ for PC, 360 and PS3, is set a shiny future where memories can be bought and sold.
To solidify the announcement, made at Gamescom just moments ago, Capcom have dropped not only a reveal trailer on us, but also a nearly eight minute long gameplay video that you can see at the bottom of the article, after the jump.
Coded by lovely new French studio Dontnod Entertainment, Remember me takes place in a futuristic Neo-Paris, set in the year 2084, and according to the official PR stuffs, players “take on the role of ‘Nilin’, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. Arrested, and with her memory wiped clean Nilin must now set out on a mission to rediscover her identity.”
It all sounds quite Total Recall-ish if you ask me, which considering the source material (and not the latest Hollywood bomb) is no bad thing at all.
Gameplay-wise, as evidenced by the gameplay video, the game would appear to play in a similar vein to the Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham titles (again, no bad thing) with a focus on platforming acrobatics and up-close and nasty hand-to-hand combat.
Could be something special. Possibly. The game is due to release in May 2013.
The very French trailer is below, with a stonking seven-and-a-half minutes of gameplay footage below that. Enjoy:
