Capcom’s Remember Me gets a release date & new trailer
Last we heard of Remember Me, it was being shown off at last year’s Gamescom. Since then, there hasn’t been much to report on the title. All that changed today as Capcom announced a release date, and showed off a brand new trailer. Read on for all the details.
If you’re scratching your head, trying to remember what Remember Me is, let me give you a little refresher. The game takes place in the year 2084, in a dystopian Paris where memories are a commodity. You play as Nilin, a memory hunter with the unique ability to rewrite, or “remix” memories. When the giant (probably evil) corporation she worked for steals her memories, she must rediscover who she is, and why her former bosses turned on her. The game seems to mix the urban platforming of Mirror’s Edge with the button mashing of a third person brawler. But enough of my overwrought descriptions. Check out the trailer for yourself below.
Remember Me will launch on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC this June 4th. It will be interesting to see how this new IP performs, with a new generation of consoles looming on the horizon. Could it be another God of War? A surprise hit, late in the life of a console, that started an entire franchise? Or will it be drowned out by the noise of another console war? I guess we’ll find out this June.
