If you’re a fan of survival horror titles, your first go-to system probably isn’t the Nintendo DS. SouthPeak Games is looking to change your perceptions with the follow-up to their 2007 title Dementium: The Ward. Dementium II will be available on February 16, 2010 in North America and March 5, 2010 in Europe.
The new title hopes to push the boundaries of horror by melding together FPS game play, puzzles to figure out and a story and ambiance that hopes to keep you coming back for more.
In fact, I think SouthPeak gets a bit too melodramatic with their press release, having this to say about the release date, Tuesday February 16:
That morning’s sunrise may very well be the last one fans see as they embrace the darkness of the survival horror FPS Dementium II.
Will Dementium II have as big an impact on DS gamers as they hope? We’ll have to wait a couple months to see.
