Konami today unveiled new screens for NeverDead, the upcoming action title for the PS3 and Xbox 360 which will be available starting January 31. The game is from Shinta Nojiri, the brainchild of the Metal Gear Acid series. It 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 Bryce, an immortal demon slayer, 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.”
