TGS 2007: Imabikisou is Japanese for "scary as f*ck"


1:10 PM on 09.21.2007




Oh God, yes. If I add Imabikisou alongside Folklore and Echochrome, I now have THREE reasons to want to own a PS3! This is groundbreaking stuff, people! Seriously, though -- there is nothing I can think of aside from owning a chocobo that would make me as excited as seeing hardcore j-horror games hitting consoles. Here's a snippet from IGN about the title:

A traditional Japanese "Sound Novel" adventure, The storyline of Imabikisou revolves around a drug called "Vision" which seems to be responsible for a string of mysterious deaths. The game's main character and heroine, attempting to flee the curse of the drug, travel to a mansion that is believed to be the source of all the problems. There, they get themselves caught up in a mystery involving a strange flower, the Imabikisou of the title.

Thank you Sega, for actually hearing my subconsious pleadings in the night and distributing this. Its release date is October 25th from developer Chunsoft, so I'll be waiting patiently to find out more about this title. Also, courtesy of a translator on the TGS show floor, the literal translation of the kanji in the trailer is "Hate, Fire, Happened, In The Plant". Awesome! Engrish rules!

[Thanks, best Features Editor ever]

Review: The Evil Within

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game...more

Is classic Survival Horror considered old fashioned now?

I like to be scared. I'm not some kind of dark-obsessed weirdo, though. I just really enjoy the feeling of being tense or terrified, so much so that I used to think that there was something wrong with me. Maybe there is. A fe...more
