Remember Me gets a new live action trailer
It’s common industry knowledge that a new game ain’t nuthin until it’s got a live action trailer. Thankfully, the trailer for Remember Me has arrived, officially making the game sumthin. Read on to check it out.
The trailer, which clocks in at just over 2 minutes, showed on on Remember Me’s official Youtube page earlier today. It features a somewhat depressing (or as Capcom puts it, reflective and somber) look at the final moments of the life of Antoine, founder of Memorize. Memorize, as you might recall, is the evil corporation which employs the game’s hero, Nilin, as a memory remixer. For reasons unknown, Memorize captures Nilin, and steals her memories, thus setting the events of the game in motion. Got all that? Cool. Now let’s watch the trailer.
I gotta say I’m pretty excited for this game. A brand new IP with a female hero is always a good thing, and the story and setting are compelling. It does bug me, though, that Capcom seems to be dumping Remember Me into stores at a most inopportune moment. The game releases on June 4th in North America, a week after FUSE, a week before E3, and 10 days before The Last of Us. It’s going to be tough for a relatively unknown property like Remember Me to compete for attention, sandwiched in between two high profile releases and the biggest gaming event of the year. All we can do is speak with our wallets, and hope for the best.
