With its release just a few weeks away, Konami has today released a batch of brand new screenshots for NeverDead.
Co-developed with Rebellion Software and the brainchild of Shinta Nojiri, NeverDead stars an immortal hero named Bryce Boltzmann who, alongside his partner Arcadia, works for an agency tasked with defeating nasty demons that have emerged from the dawn of time.
This is where Bryce’s immortality comes into play, as he can be torn limb from limb, but still survive and can put himself together again. Think of it as a jigsaw puzzle, but with a human body. The fun doesn’t end there though, as even when all his limbs have been removed, you can roll around as a head, looking to reattach lost parts. You can also use Bryce’s amputated body parts as weapons, throwing his arms into clusters of monsters, or throwing his head into seemingly impossible areas to gain access to new areas.
Shinta Nojiri, the creator of NeverDead, stated the following:
“In NeverDead, we‘ve gone all out to change the approach the player takes in battle. 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 is set to released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 31st in North America and February 3rd in Europe.
