Konami has released a new video that shows off the first 10 minutes of NeverDead.
NeverDead offers a radically new gameplay experience within the genre based on decapitation and regeneration. While attacked, players can be torn limb from limb, but can then reattach the parts to their body. Even when all limbs have been removed, players can roll around as a head, looking to reattach lost parts.
The game stars Bryce Boltzmann (voiced by David Lodge) as a wise cracking human demon hunter, who was cursed with immortality five-hundred years ago by the demon king Astaroth.
“In NeverDead, we’ve gone all out to change the approach the player takes in battle,” said Shinta Nojiri, creator of NeverDead.” Losing a limb is a mere inconvenience and Bryce’s physical skills allow a wealth of ways to take out the enemy – from close-range combat, to throwing limbs into clusters of monsters and shooting them remotely. This adds a level of humor to the game that brings the world-weary main character to life, while players revel in game worlds that are fully interactive and eminently destructible.”
NeverDead will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February.
