Konami Announces Ship Date for NeverDead


The brainchild of Shinta Nojiri, and co-developed with Rebellion Software, NeverDead stars an immortal hero named Bryce Boltzmann who, alongside his partner Arcadia, works for an agency tasked with defeating demonic incursions. While demons from the dawn of time emerge on present-day Earth, players take on the role of the immortal demon slayer, Bryce, as they seek and destroy the hostile invaders.

“In NeverDead, we’ve gone all out to change the approach the player takes in battle,” said Shinta Nojiri, creator of NeverDead.” 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.”

As the monsters get larger and more vicious in the game, the side-effect of Bryce’s immortality is revealed. While attacked, players can be torn limb from limb, but can then reattach the parts to their body. Even when all limbs have been removed, players can roll around as a head, looking to reattach lost parts. Gamers can also use their amputated body parts as weapons, throwing arms into clusters of monsters, or lobbing their head into seemingly impossible areas to gain access to new sections of the NeverDead map.

KONAMI will also release information on upcoming NeverDead DLC soon. NeverDead will be in stores January 31st 2012.

    Pre E3 interview with game developer. Explains the mechanics of the gameplay and the idea behind Never Dead. Good stuff. As awesome as the idea behind the game sounds, a revengeful demon slayer who never dies, but that would be a problem in terms of creating a challenging environment for the gamers, that is why you actually do die in this game. So Never Dead is not entirely truthful to the game origin lol

    latest previews (shown this week by GI, Gamespot and IGN) aren’t very promising if you’ll ask me. I wasn’t excited about it before, now I just don’t care ;p
