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]
