Publisher Konami has announced that its quirky demonic action title NeverDead will be released on February 3rd.
The game has been co-developed with UK studio Rebellion and stars an immortal named Bryce Boltzman.
The USP here is that while enemies can quite literally tear Bryce limb from limb, he’s able to reattach his various body parts to himself or use them as weapons. And even when stripped of everything bar his head, our hero can still roll about and cause mischief.
For NeverDead, we‘ve gone all out to change the approach the player takes in battle,” creator Shinta Nojiri stated. 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 humour to the game that brings the world-weary main character to life, while players can revel in game worlds that can are fully interactive and eminently destructible.”
