About a year ago, Konami announced the existence of a third-person shooter set in the not-so-distant future that had you protecting the world from a supernatural scourge. Hardly novel, right? Where NeverDead
gets interesting is in the core gameplay mechanic that makes the immortal anti-hero you play as quite literally comes to pieces throughout the game.
“NEVERDEAD is a third-person action title set in a fantasy and horror-influenced universe of the near-future where supernatural battles between humans and extraordinary creatures span a vast city landscape. Players wield a unique butterfly design-inspired sword and an arsenal of guns, which are used to decimate waves of unholy enemies, and can rebuild their battle-weary body by collecting and repairing any lost limbs, and reattaching them.”
We’ve got the latest E3 trailer that shows off a bit of CGI-fuelled backstory and some limb-removing gameplay to boot. Check it out below.
