Calling Launch Trailer Brings the Digital Spooks
Just a few days ago we told you about the new survival horror shocker Calling, which was due out on March 16th! Good news, gamers ... you can get your hands on it RIGHT NOW in stores, and we've got a look at the launch trailer for you!
From the Press Release
The spirit world is ready to take on the gaming world in Calling, now available on Wii™ for $39.99. Published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American subsidiary of HUDSON SOFT, Calling centers around a mysterious “Black Page,” to which four unique characters are drawn in search of answers. Calling has roots in the Japanese horror genre and presents a sinister new take on ordinary environments and objects as the characters try to escape from the Mnemonic Abyss.
“Gamers everywhere will never look at an ordinary cell phone in the same way again after playing Calling,” said Mike Pepe, Director of Marketing of Hudson Entertainment. “Calling offers a refreshing combination of traditional horror and unique Wii gameplay that will thrill hardcore fans and casual gamers.”
Some say the “Black Page” is a hoax; others say it is a bridge to something sinister. Players seek the truth for themselves with the guidance of the four characters stuck in the Mnemonic Abyss. Calling revolves around these characters and their fight for survival. In classic J-Horror style, players will experience the gripping story of suspense from the different characters’ perspectives. Someone or something is drawing the living into the Mnemonic Abyss for a reason, and it is up to the player to discover the truth. Using the Wii Remote™, players will use various equipment including flashlights, phones, and other items to navigate and escape the Calling.
Throughout the game players will visit various parts of the Calling world. Memories of houses, schools, hospitals, and more bring players closer to either an escape or an untimely death. Players will solve puzzles, search and interact with objects, and ultimately try to escape this alternate existence.
The game definitely exhibits a healthy Ring meets Fatal Frame vibe. Check out the art, watch the trailer, and even dig on a featurette below. For more info visit the official Calling website here.
