Capcom began its biggest ever presence at GamesCom yesterday with a press conference, at which it announced Remember Me™.
Remember Me is a brand new IP. So new in fact, that the featured image doesn’t even have the title in it. Developed by Paris based DONTNOD Entertainment, Remember Me is a third person action adventure game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 , and Windows PC, published by Capcom and scheduled for release in May 2013.
In Remember Me, players assume the role of Nilin, an elite memory hunter who is not only incredibly athletic and trained in martial arts, but also has the special ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even change their memories. When her own memory is erased, Nilin begins her journey to reclaim her identity and discover how she can change the world.
Incredibly athletic, trained in martial arts, AND capable of breaking into people’s minds? Betrayed by someone (by the sound of it)? You don’t say. However, the last game I played the revolved around messing around inside people’s head turned out to be awesome (coughpsychonautscough). Capcom usually does a good job, and while I poke fun, the notion of “assuming the role of an elite memory hunter” will more than likely result in hours of fun. Good job Capcom.
