Capcom presented a new IP yesterday at Gamescom in Germany, a new third-person sci-fi action-adventure title entitled, “Remember Me”.
Formerly titled “Adrift”, Remember Me takes place in the year 2084 in a futuristic part of Paris, where the protagonist Nilan, 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.
Initially, this game reminds me of a mash-up between the new Total Recall, Deus Ex, Minority Report, and sprinkled with a little bit of Mirror’s Edge, Assassin’s Creed and a sleek, fast-paced combat system similar to Batman: Arkham Asylum, but that’s just my take on it.
It seems we have a very ambitious title here by Capcom. The game is being developed with Dontnod Entertainment, a new development studio based out of Paris, France. A release date of May 2013 is on the table right now, according to the announcement trailer.
