Rise of Nightmares might be the best core Kinect game yet

The previous E3 trailer for SEGA’s Rise of Nightmares wasn’t very good to say the least, but now there’s finally a trailer that shows the actual game. What a world of technological marvels we live in.

The trailer shows you that the game is basically House of the Dead for Kinect, providing a huge Overkill vibe — without the 70s grindhouse theme, but with the 70s film effect. And just like that, Rise of Nightmares became my most-anticipated Kinect game that isn’t Dance Central.

Color me surprised! But if someone at SEGA doesn’t include a scene where you have to reach out your hand and open a door yourself, fully aware that something scary will be lurking behind that door in the dark like in every single American B-horror out there, I’ll be very disappointed. Don’t let me down, SEGA.
