News – Konami takes the wraps off NeverDead

At E3 Konami showed off a new Rebellion Studios developed third person action game, which combines guns with a butterfly-inspired sword. Titled NeverDead, the game has been overseen by Konami Japan’s Shinta Nojiri (who has had involvement in the likes of Policenauts as well as the Metal Gear Acid series).

The E3 trailer shows some rather cheesy humour as well as an unnamed man taking on demons, whom also gets just so happens to get decapitated after being thrown against a wall by one of those nasty demons. The difference here is that the he isn’t instantly killed when he loses his head; nope this guy is immortal. To heal, he reattaches his body parts to his torso, which is both interesting and rather amusing at the same time.

The game is being developed for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 and is looking rather nice. I look forward to hearing and seeing more of this one.
