Survival horror sequel headed to Nintendo’s latest and old standbys.
Though the Wii may have suffered a slow start, Nintendo’s new console is certainly picking up steam when it comes to providing a more...age-diverse lineup. Among the myriad of family friendly games, such as the hotly anticipated Super Mario Galaxy, more mature games are slowly starting to emerge on the system, like the controversial Manhunt 2. And now, it’s been announced that the survival horror game Obscure II, the sequel to one of 2005’s more, well, obscure (but well reviewed) titles, is headed to the Wii, PS2 and PC later this year. More information about the game can be found in the full press release below:
(Amsterdam, The Netherlands) April 16, 2007 – Publisher Playlogic Entertainment, Inc. (OTCBB: PLGC) announces the acquisition of the survival horror game “Obscure II” from French development studio Hydravision. The sequel of the innovative Obscure© will be released in Q3 of this year on PC and PS2. The release for Wii is set for Q4.
Obscure II (PC, PS2, Wii) takes place two years after the gruesome events of the first game. The survivors have gone on to college and try to return to their normal lives. After the discovery of a beautiful but strange plant on school campus, events take a turn for the worse. Soon, the college students have to battle for survival once again.
Players of Obscure II can choose their character and one AI controlled sidekick. In total there are six playable characters, each with their own unique abilities. These can be switched at various points in the game. Due to the game’s unique co-op feature, friends can join at any time to team up and attempt surviving Obscure II together. There are many available weapons to keep the monsters that hunt you at bay. Light might be the players’ biggest ally because you never know what’s lurking in the shadows.
