Spirit Hunter: NG has just been announced by Aksys games for an October 10 release. Spirit Hunter: NG is the sequel to the popular Spirit Hunter: Death Mark that released last year. The new title will feature a completely new set of characters that have to battle the darkness that resides in Tokyo. The story of Spirit Hunter: NG revolves around a cursed boy who wants to save his sister from angry demons. Along the journey new allies will be met and tough choices must be made. The game is interactive so decisions made will impact the overall story in different ways. Key features include the following.
Creeping Horrors, Familiar Settings - While its predecessor, Spirit Hunter: Death Mark,found its spirits in distinct, horrifying locales, Spirit Hunter: NG weaves fear seamlessly into the mundane. Face down monsters in quiet residential streets, neighborhood parks, and even the protagonist’s own home. Be careful—terror lurks behind every corner.
Search For Clues - Use a flashlight to examine each location in order to solve the game’s terrifying mystery. Watch out! You may unearth more than you’ve bargained for.
More Than A Visual Novel - Spirit Hunter: NG offers an immersive and exciting gameplay experience, in which players must make decisions at key moments in order to survive. Players navigate choices via a “Judge System,” allowing them to respond to each event with a spectrum of reactions.
Beautiful But Deadly - The game features gorgeous illustrations from artist Fumiya Sumio, who makes the terror in each character’s face impossible to miss and renders horrifying spirits with stunning detail.
The premise of Spirit Hunter: NG sounds creepy and should delight horror fans. This entry also marks the beginning of Spirit Hunter becoming an ongoing franchise so fans can probably expect more games to come in the future. Spirit Hunter: NG will release on October 10th for PC, PS4, Vita and Switch. The game is currently only planned for digital release.
