New horror game Kodoku announced for PS4 and PS Vita

Planned to arrive in 2015

Independent developer Carnivore Studio has announced they are working on a game bound for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita next year. According to details provided by Pocket Gamer, the title will feature stealth-based gameplay as players explore an island filled with otherworldly creatures drawn from Japanese myth in search of a rare book. 

The art looks pretty cool, and I enjoy the idea of stealth being the only recourse (as the player is reported to have no weapons, though some sorcery will be afoot), as it seems all too often the case in stealth games today that sneaking can be an afterthought for the player.

But don’t get too terribly excited. Carnivore doesn’t plan to release the game until 2015 and there’s a whole lot that can happen in that time. Until then, here’s hoping for the best.
