There have been some forays into the realm of augmented reality gaming recently as technology has gotten more advanced. The Hidden is the latest attempt at AR integration and uses the 3DS' cameras to hunt down and exterminate ghosts. In order to track down all the ghosts and unlock all the levels, players will be required to travel around town, so no chilling out on your couch scanning the living room day after day.
My initial reaction to this game, before I saw the trailer, was excitement. The idea of a horror game that uses AR is fantastic. Then I saw the trailer and while it doesn't look like the worst 3DS title, I was hoping for something that might actually give me a fright. Like Fatal Frame.
