Tired of facing off against cutesy avatars in just about all of the games available for Microsoft’s Kinect for the Xbox 360? Looking for something a bit more substantial than dancing, aerobics or mini-games? We totally hear you. Not to worry. Something wicked this way comes.
It’s been a while since last we heard anything about Sega’s Rise of Nightmares for the Kinect, but thankfully a few details have arisen thanks to the good folks over at Silicon Era.
According to the site:
“The ESRB knows a lot more about Rise of Nightmares. They gave the game an ‘M’ rating and a revealing description.
This is a horror-adventure game in which players assume the role of an American tourist who must rescue his wife from a deranged scientist. From a first-person perspective, players use brass knuckles, knives, hatchets, and chainsaws to kill zombie-like creatures and disfigured monsters inside a mansion environment. Combat is highlighted by exaggerated sprays of blood, and damage often results in dismemberment or decapitation — stray body parts sometimes litter the ground.
Some sequences and cutscenes depict more intense acts of violence: a man screams loudly as spikes impale his body; a restrained character’s hand is chopped off before he is killed; a character (cut in half) crawls away in a pool of blood; a soldier is ripped apart by a monster, causing blood to stain the screen. During the course of the game, some female creatures are depicted in revealing outfits (e.g., ‘pasties’ that partially cover their breasts); in one sequence, a woman sits on the central character’s chest and engages in suggestive dialogue (e.g., ‘Oh, how I’ve thought of this — night after night. How I’ve missed these lips.’). Dialogue also includes phrases such as ‘Best sex of my life.’/’Worst sex of my life,’ ‘fuck,’ and ‘shit.’”
SOLD! Look for more on Rise of Nightmares soon!
